spoke briefly with the president about the immigration
executive order and its issues for our community”
“I also let him know that I would not be able to participate
on his economic council joining the group was not meant
to be an endorsement of the president on his agenda but
unfortunately, it has been misinterpreted to be exactly
that”

In addition to the mass deletion of its app, it seemed Uber
was also faced with both external and internal pressures.

A disputation all-hands meetings was held which had
Kalanick struggle with serious staff complaints over the
perceived relationship between Uber, its chief executive
and the Trump’s administration.

employees’ dissatisfaction with how Kalanick had
managed the relationship between Uber and Trump.
