Tim Cook challenges Donald Trump: “he must be held accountable” | Digital Trends Spanish
The violent entrance by supporters of Donald Trump to the Capitol, in Washington, last week, produced a balance of five fatalities and several arrests.
Not only that, it also left the public image of President Trump on the ground, and several powerful “enemies” have criticized his actions during this reprehensible event.
In conversation with the program CBS This Morning, Apple chief executive Tim Cook said the president should be held responsible for the serious riots last week.
“I think no one is above the law,” Cook said during the interview with Gayle King that aired on Tuesday.
“I mean, that’s the great thing about our country, we are a country with a rule of law. I believe that everyone who has participated in it must be held accountable ”.
Earlier, on his Twitter account, Cook had posted about the incidents on Capitol Hill that “this 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.

It should be remembered that one of the first actions taken by the company after the incidents was to suspend the application store from app de Parler, famous among Trump supporters and held responsible for not having removed content that promoted violence.
“We have always supported the representation of diverse points of view in the App Store, but there is no place on our platform for threats of violence and illegal activity,” Apple explained in a statement.
