American companies CEO on muslim ban This is show the biggest American companies CEO are reacting to Donald Trump’s muslim ban

Reaction to President Trump’s muslim ban was very strong. Hundreds of thousand U.S. citizens are expressing their disappointment for the executive order that now barrie refugees, visa and green card holders from seven Muslim-majority countries from entering the United States. Among them there are also the CEO of American biggest companies. Here is a selection of their best statements.

Starbucks CEO: Howard Schultz
“We are living in an unprecedented time, one in which we are witness to the conscience of our country, and the promise of the American Dream, being called into question”

Netflix CEO: Reed Hastings
"Trump would destroy much of what is great about America" 

PepsiCo CEO: Indra Nooyi
"Employees are scared for their safety after Trump's election. I had to answer a lot of questions from my daughters, from our employees. They were all in mourning. And the question that they're asking, especially those who are not white, 'Are we safe?' Women are asking, 'Are we safe?' LGBT people are asking, 'Are we safe?' I never thought I would have to answer those questions"

Apple CEO: Tim Cook
“Apple would not exist without immigration, let alone thrive and innovate the way we do. I've heard from many of you who are deeply concerned about the executive order issued yesterday restricting immigration from seven Muslim-majority countries. I share your concerns, It is not a policy we support”

“In the words of Dr. Martin Luther King, ‘We may have all come on different ships, but we are in the same boat now"

Uber CEO: Travis Kalanick
"While every government has their own immigration controls, allowing people from all around the world to come here and make America their home has largely been the U.S.’s policy since its founding. That means this ban will impact many innocent people—an issue that I will raise this coming Friday when I go to Washington for President Trump’s first business advisory group meeting"

Google CEO: Sundar Pichai
“We’re upset about the impact of this order and any proposals that could impose restrictions on Googlers and their families, or that could create barriers to bringing great talent to the US”

Facebook CEO: Mark Zuckerberg
“The United States is a nation of immigrants, and we should be proud of tha. We should also keep our doors open to refugees and those who need help. That’s who we are. Had we turned away refugees a few decades ago, Priscilla’s family wouldn’t be here today”

“Like many of you, I’m concerned about the impact of the recent executive orders signed by President Trump. We need to keep this country safe, but we should do that by focusing on people who actually pose a threat. Expanding the focus of law enforcement beyond people who are real threats would make all Americans less safe by diverting resources, while millions of undocumented folks who don’t pose a threat will live in fear of deportation”
