US Senators upset with Tim Cook over speech in China

Democrat Senator Leahy of Vermont and Republican Senator Ted Cruz of Texas have expressed their displeasure of Cook’s remarks at the World Internet Conference in China where Tim Cook was quoted as saying…

“The theme of this conference — developing a digital economy for openness and shared benefits — is a vision we at Apple share,” Cook said. “We are proud to have worked alongside many of our partners in China to help build a community that will join a common future in cyberspace.”

In response Senator Leahy said…

“American tech companies have become leading champions of free expression. But that commitment should not end at our borders…Global leaders in innovation, like Apple, have both an opportunity and a moral obligation to promote free expression and other basic human rights in countries that routinely deny these rights.”

“Apple is clearly a force for good in China, but I also believe it and other tech companies must continue to push back on Chinese suppression of free expression,” Leahy said.
