Twitter Calls for Boycott of Uber Because of Ties to Trump

The political climate has become so charged that it feels like there’s a new call for a boycott on Twitter every day. Their boycott hashtag du jour is #BoycottUber, which is calling on those who oppose the new POTUS to take their ridesharing dollars elsewhere after the company’s CEO, Travis Kalanick, defended the company’s decision to work with the Trump administration.

#BoycottUber popped up on Twitter Friday after Kalanick said that the relationship was necessary to fulfill Uber’s mission to improve global transportation.

“We’ll partner with anyone in the world as long they’re about making transportation in cities better, creating job opportunities, making it easier to get around, getting pollution out of the air and traffic off the streets,” Kalanick told employees in an email published by Business Insider.
