Apple CEO Tim Cook plans to host a fundraiser that will benefit Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton, reports BuzzFeed. Cook, along with Lisa Jackson, Apple's vice president of environment, policy, and social initiatives, will host the event as private citizens, not as representatives of Apple.

Cook and Jackson plan to raise money for the Hillary Victory Fund, a committee that contributes to the Clinton campaign, the Democratic National Committee, and 38 state parties. Invites for the event, which will take place on August 24, went out this morning.


Apple CEO Tim Cook is eager to demonstrate support for Democrats and Republicans to strengthen Apple's relationship with both parties.

The Hillary fundraiser will follow a fundraiser Cook co-hosted for Republican House Speaker Paul Ryan in June. Cook and Ryan teamed up to host a private breakfast in Menlo Park on June 28. Money raised benefited Ryan and a fundraising committee that helps elect other House Republicans.

While Cook hosted a fundraiser for Ryan, Apple elected not to support the 2016 Republican Convention in Cleveland due to some of presidential nominee Donald Trump's controversial statements on the subjects of minorities, women, and immigrants.

I'm so happy that Tim Cook has extra time. Both the US government and Apple have something in common today... both bloated and seemingly without direction.

However, this is definitely a way to lobby a president to appeal to issues on encryption and prevent future monopoly government intervention.

But why would she need more money?

Sorry, I am not from the USA so I might be missing something.
Hillary has "raised" almost 400 million to date. She is going to use it to help needy kids because she is a democrat and that is what she cares about.

Oh, wait.. You mean she is not donating it to the poor, the hungry? You mean she is spending it on herself to gain power? That can't be!
