According to ABC News, Uber CEO Travis Kalanick is no longer a member of President Drumpf’s council of business leaders, saying in an internal memo to employees obtained by AP that he’d told Trump he will no longer participate. He wrote,

“Joining the group was not meant to be an endorsement of the president or his agenda but unfortunately it has been misinterpreted to be exactly that.”

Kalanick’s action comes after the ride-sharing company became the target of a #DeleteUber campaign that had people boycotting after it was perceived that Uber had tried to break a taxi strike at New York’s JFK Airport that was called in response to Trump’s travel and refugee ban. Uber denied that was what it had done, but the boycott continue, with a reported 200,000 people deleting Uber from their phones.
