As a democrat I don't consider Tim Cook one of my kin. Sure, he's openly gay, but he's also a tax-evading, resource-wasting, child-labor-abusing capitalist hog. He's not liberal at all but he puts on this act because he knows his target market of artists and lower to middle-classers buy Apple because of its conceived hip, liberal-ness. He says "oh look over here at our field of solar panels, or at my angry letters to Donald Trump," but he doesn't want anyone to think about his little tax-haven scheme in Ireland or his abuse of lax Chinese labor laws, employing children and paying workers a little over $3 an hour. Most rely on overtime to make enough to live, working over 60 hours a week. So no, I don't consider Tim Cook an ally of the economic policy of the Democrats, and while he may advocate for LGBTQ rights and rail against descriminative immigration policy, all is to promote the Apple brand, and he does little to promote or follow actual democratic policy.
