Trump Advisory Body: Uber Boss Quits

  • Travis Kalanick, the chief executive of ride-sharing service Uber, has resigned from US President Donald Trump's economic advisory group after he reportedly received strong criticisms from the public as well as staff.

    Reports say that Tesla chief executive Elon Musk, who is also a member of the board, will be meeting the president on Friday.

    Uber is one of the technology firms that had expressed its concern over the immigration ban on its employees.

    The firm mentioned that it has set up a $3m legal fund to help its employees who were effected after the decision came in. This also covers the company's own drivers.
