Apple CEO Tim Cook Weighs in on US Capitol Rioters

Apple CEO Tim Cook has weighed in on the events in Washington D.C. on Wednesday. Following the rioters storming the Capitol on Wednesday, Cook tweeted that “those responsible for this insurrection to be held to account.”


Cook, who has had an interesting relationship with President Trump over the last four years, said the incident “marks a sad and shameful chapter” in the history of the United States. Cook also said that “we must complete the transition” to President-elect Biden’s incoming administration.

Cook wrote on Twitter:

“Today marks a sad and shameful chapter in our nation’s history. Those responsible for this insurrection should be held to account, and we must complete the transition to President-elect Biden’s administration. It’s especially when they are challenged that our ideals matter most.”

Twitter locked President Trump’s account for 12 hours and said that the President must remove three tweets that contained “repeated and severe violations” of its civic integrity policy, or the account will remain locked.

The Twitter Safety account tweeted the following statement.

“As a result of the unprecedented and ongoing violent situation in Washington, DC, we have required the removal of three @realDonaldTrump tweets that were posted earlier today for repeated and severe violations of our Civic Integrity policy. This means that the account of @realDonaldTrump will be locked for 12 hours following the removal of these Tweets. If the Tweets are not removed, the account will remain locked. Future violations of the Twitter Rules, including our Civic Integrity or Violent Threats policies, will result in permanent suspension of the @realDonaldTrump account.”
