In an interview on CBS This Morning on Tuesday, Apple CEO Tim Cook stated that President Trump should be held accountable for the recent events at Capitol Hill. CBS This Morning host Gayle King asked Cook his opinion on the issue of Trump’s role in the Capitol Hill protests in the following clip:
Cook stated: “I think no one is above the law. I mean, that’s the great thing about our country, we’re a rule of law country. I think everyone that had a part in it needs to be held accountable.” Cook added: “I don’t think we should let it go.”
Following the events at Capitol Hill, Cook tweeted about the situation, stating that the day was a “sad and shameful chapter in our nation’s history.”
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.
