Netflix CEO Reed Hastings has joined other tech leaders by lashing out at presumptive Republican candidate Donald Trump.
"Trump would destroy much of what is great about America. Hillary Clinton is the strong leader we need, and it's important that Trump lose by a landslide to reject what he stands for," Hastings said in a statement, according to The Washington Post.
Hastings joins executives from tech companies including Facebook, Alphabet and Airbnb in endorsing Clinton for the president of the United States in a collective announcement Wednesday night.
Other tech executives who have thrown their support behind Clinton include:
- Mark Pincus, co-founder of Zynga
- Nathan Blecharczyk, co-founder and CTO of Airbnb
- Drew Houston, founder and CEO of Dropbox
- Jim Cicconi, senior executive vice president of AT&T Services
- Candy Ergen, co-founder of Dish Network
- Paul Jacobs, executive chairman of Qualcomm
- David Karp, founder and CEO of Tumblr
- Rob Marcus, former chairman and CEO of Time Warner Cable
- Sheryl Sandberg, chief operating officer of Facebook
- Eric Schmidt, executive chairman of Alphabet (formerly named Google)
- Jeremy Stoppelman, CEO and co-founder of Yelp
The list of endorsers also included executives from other companies such as General Motors and Delta
