Protesters chanting outside Uber’s headquarters

Anti-Trump protestors are outside Uber's San Francisco headquarters this morning urging resistance to the new administration. As TechCrunch reports, the protesters are chanting "Donald Trump, go away. Racist, sexist, anti-gay."

Why Uber: The protesters aren't happy that Uber CEO Travis Kalanick is a member Trump's Strategic and Policy forum, which serves as business advisory group to Trump. The forum also includes Disney's Bob Iger, General Motors' Mary Barra and PepsiCo's Indra Nooyi, holding signs saying "Uber collaborates with Trump."

Uber responds: A spokesperson says via email: "As a company we're committed to working with government on issues that affect riders, drivers and the cities where we operate. Just as we worked with the Obama Administration, we'll work with the Trump Administration, too."
