Silicon Valley Warms to Trump After a Chilly Start

This piece could also be called “I told you so,” by Peter Thiel. It is a good reminder of how distraught Silicon Valley was over President Trump’s election and how executives have backed off their criticism, largely due to the tax cuts. I think the article misstates—a little—the current mood. Valley execs haven’t much “warmed” to Trump as much as they have resigned themselves to him.  At the same time, they are trying to distance themselves from politics all around, feeling that being public in a country this polarized is a no-win situation. And the immigration situation is still raw. Lastly, any mood change could shift again in a second. I don’t think Jeff Bezos is feeling a lot of Trump love at the moment.
