Lyft and Airbnb are among the first tech companies to publicly oppose Trump's revamped executive order that goes into effect next week.

Lyft CEO Logan Green said in a statement:

"Lyft stands firmly against this order. We will continue to speak out and take action when the values of our community are put at risk. John and I are meeting with the Executive Director of the ACLU on Wednesday to discuss how we can further support their efforts."

Airbnb CEO Brian Chesky tweeted:

It's not surprising that Silicon Valley companies are speaking out against Trump's latest 90-day travel ban, as nearly 100 signed onto an amicus brief opposing his initial travel ban barring travel from seven Muslim-majority countries. The new executive order removes Iraq from that list and does not subject existing visa holders to the ban. The new order also includes a 120-day ban on refugees entering the U.S.

Who hasn't chimed in: Google, Facebook, Intel, Apple and Microsoft did not immediately comment on the travel ban.

Wall Street is no longer betting on Trump

Betting markets have turned decisively toward an expected victory for Joe Biden in November — and asset managers at major investment banks are preparing for not only a Biden win, but potentially a Democratic sweep of the Senate and House too.

Why it matters: Wall Street had its chips on a Trump win until recently — even in the midst of the coronavirus-induced recession and Biden's rise in the polls.

With new security law, China outlaws global activism

The draconian security law that Beijing forced upon Hong Kong last week contains an article making it illegal for anyone in the world to promote democratic reform for Hong Kong.

Why it matters: China has long sought to crush organized dissent abroad through quiet threats and coercion. Now it has codified that practice into law — potentially forcing people and companies around the world to choose between speaking freely and ever stepping foot in Hong Kong again.

Axios-Ipsos poll: There is no new normal

Data: Axios/Ipsos poll; Chart: Andrew Witherspoon/Axios

The longer the coronavirus pandemic lasts, the farther we're moving apart, according to our analysis of nearly four months of data from the Axios-Ipsos Coronavirus Index.

Why it matters: Ever since life in the U.S. as we knew it came to a screeching halt, we've been trying to get our heads around what a "new normal" will look like. But so far, the politicization of the virus — and our socioeconomic differences — are working against any notion of national unity in impact or response.
