Is Tim Cook running for president?

“Apple CEO Tim Cook barnstormed across Middle America on Thursday, holding events in Ohio and Iowa, two crucial swing states in presidential elections. Cook’s latest moves are raising questions about potential presidential aspirations,” NTK Network writes.

“While top Democrats like Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT), Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA), and former Vice President Joe Biden are considered the frontrunners to challenge President Trump in 2020, rumors have been swirling about the possibility of Facebook’s Mark Zuckerberg tossing his hat in the 2020 ring,” NTK Network writes. “Unlike Zuckerberg whose actions surrounding his possible run have largely been behind the scenes, it appears that Cook is taking a more Trumpian approach by holding rallies that appear optically more in line with a presidential type event. Cook visited Cincinnati Test Systems in Harrison, OH on Thursday morning, ‘where he thanked employees and hinted at a prosperous future.'”

“After Cook’s appearance in Harrison, he was off to Des Moines, IA for an event outside the Iowa Statehouse to announce the creation of a data center. Governor Kim Reynolds joined Cook for the announcement,” NTK Network writes. “Cook has not been shy about wading into political issues. He spoke out against Trump’s decision to withdraw from the Paris Climate Accords and, more recently, criticized Trump’s handling of the Charlottesville protests.”

  1. Tim Cook should not play politics regardless of a good cause or personal ambition on Apple time using Apple prestige and Apple stock owners money.

  2. Unlike Zuckerberg, I doubt Tim has political ambitions that go beyond the bully pulpit offered as Apple’s CEO. As others have pointed out, he had legit business reasons to visit Iowa and Ohio, as well as Apple suppliers and retailers around the world…

  3. The US has had approx. seven major naval accidents involving sophysticated war ships in recent history with the Fitzgerald and the McCain having the most sophisticated tracking and detection technology in the history of the world for a ship. It’s a shame that the ships’ top brass got canned when it’s the inherently buggy Windows OS (i.e., the technology) deployed throughout the the ships’ information system that should have been canned instead.

    Therefore, Apple’s Tim Cook presidency would be a threat to the Windows Lobby so he would be under major threat of assassination.

    1. If what you say is true, virus and hacker prone Windows is running our government ships and nuclear silos?!?

      If Cook suspended his hyper-partisan political positions and reached out to work with President Trump, I believe Apple would be in the best position to replaced outdated Microsoft tech with secure Apple tech.

      And just then, I woke up …
