HuffPost Headline: ‘Trump Loses Uber Allies’


It’s a start but we’re sticking with Lyft.


Uber CEO Travis Kalanick is resigning from President Donald Trump’s economic advisory council, according to the company.

Kalanick announced the decision in a memo to Uber employees Thursday afternoon, explaining he wanted to distance both himself and the ride-hailing company from the anti-Muslim executive order Trump signed last Friday.

“Joining the group was not meant to be an endorsement of the President or his agenda” Kalanick wrote, in a copy of the memo obtained by The Huffington Post, “but unfortunately it has been misinterpreted to be exactly that.”
