Uber CEO Travis Kalanick Quits Trump Advisory Council After Widespread Backlash
Nice work with the #DeleteUber campaign, everyone. That shit worked. Uber CEO Travis Kalanick is quitting Trump’s advisory council, sources first revealed to Recode‘s Kara Swisher Thursday afternoon.

Over […]
Tune in to my podcast tonight to discuss more on President Trump. www.YouTube.com/TooRealForTV Trump has been trying to govern by impulse, on whim, for personal retribution, for profit, by decree ― as if he had been elected dictator.
