Email Tim Cook kepada karyawan Apple setelah Donald Trump terpilih jadi presiden

Setelah Donald Trump menjadi presiden terpilih Amerika Serikat, Tim Cook mengirimkan sebuah email kepada karyawannya. Berikut isi email tersebut seperti yang dilaporkan oleh John Paczkowski via BuzzFeed:

I’ve heard from many of you today about the presidential election. In a political contest where the candidates were so different and each received a similar number of popular votes, it’s inevitable that the aftermath leaves many of you with strong feelings.

We have a very diverse team of employees, including supporters of each of the candidates. Regardless of which candidate each of us supported as individuals, the only way to move forward is to move forward together. I recall something Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. said 50 years ago: “If you can’t fly, then run. If you can’t run, then walk. If you can’t walk, then crawl, but whatever you do you have to keep moving forward.” This advice is timeless, and a reminder that we only do great work and improve the world by moving forward.

While there is discussion today about uncertainties ahead, you can be confident that Apple’s North Star hasn’t changed. Our products connect people everywhere, and they provide the tools for our customers to do great things to improve their lives and the world at large. Our company is open to all, and we celebrate the diversity of our team here in the United States and around the world — regardless of what they look like, where they come from, how they worship or who they love.
I’ve always looked at Apple as one big family and I encourage you to reach out to your co-workers if they are feeling anxious.

Let’s move forward — together!


Kemenangan Trump menjadi presiden Amerika Serikat membawa kekhawatiran bagi banyak pihak. Termasuk Apple. Ketika masa kampanye, Trump tak jarang menyinggung Apple. Dua hal yang saya masih ingat adalah permintaannya agar Apple mengalihkan produksi ke dalam negeri dan dukungannya kepada FBI yang waktu itu meminta Apple menulis sistem operasi khusus untuk iPhone dan iPad tanpa fitur pengaman.

Kedua ucapan Trump tersebut cukup berbahaya bagi Apple. Pertama, mengalihkan produksi ke dalam negeri bukan hal yang mudah untuk dilakukan. Kedua, menulis sistem operasi khusus tanpa fitur pengaman bertentangan dengan apa yang Tim Cook selalu tegaskan yaitu melindungi data pengguna produknya tanpa kompromi.
