Uber pushes back on Trump’s executive order

Uber pushes against Trump's immigration order

(CNN) – Uber is pushing back against president Trump’s immigration order.

CEO Travis Kalanick tweeted on Sunday that the ban was against everything that Uber stands for.

He also promised to help his drivers affected by the order, setting aside money for their legal defense.

Uber took fire for its initial response to the executive order on Saturday.

The company effectively lowered its fares at JFK airport, where taxi drivers were calling for a strike because of detention of two Iraqis.

Some customers then created the hashtag “delete Uber,” but the company says it was not trying to break up the strike.
