America’s tech titans are pushing back against President Donald Trump‘s statement on Wednesday that he will block transgender people from serving in the military.
And Twitter co-founder Jack Dorsey also added his objection, saying that “discrimination in any form is wrong for all of us.”
Early Wednesday, Trump published three tweets saying that, since the “medical costs and disruption” of transgender military personnel were burdensome, he would “not accept or allow” them “to serve in any capacity” in the U.S. armed services.
CEOs and business leaders from Silicon Valley have increasingly been taking stands on political issues. Elon Musk, for example, left all three government advisory councils when the President withdrew America from the Paris climate accord.
