Congratulating Donald Trump for becoming the 45th US President, Microsoft's Indian-born CEO Satya Nadella said he looks forward to working with all those elected. "We witnessed the democratic process in action here in the US. The results are of importance around the world, and I know that interest is shared among Microsoft employees," Nadella said in a statement posted on Microsoft-owned LinkedIn on Wednesday."We congratulate the president-elect and look forward to working with all those elected yesterday. Our commitment to our mission and values are steadfast, and in particular fostering a diverse and inclusive culture," Nadella added.
"We congratulate the president-elect, and look forward to working with all those elected yesterday. Our commitment to our mission and values are steadfast, and in particular fostering a diverse and inclusive culture," Nadella added. According to The Verge, "Nadella may be congratulating President-elect, but he's also crossing his fingers that Trump doesn't follow through on some of his tech-adverse campaign promises."
The statement was extremely carefully worded to ensure that it did nod offend any political side during a time when the dependence and relationship between the Technology industry and White House is straining. These strains are the result of constant debates and court battles on important issues like encryption and user privacy. It is evident that Microsoft like all other tech companies is worried by this straining relationship and instead wants to work with the White House to continue the ties.
