Uber CEO to step down from Trump's economic advisory council

Uber Technologies Inc. CEO Travis Kalanick will be leaving the economic advisory council of President Donald Trump, The New York Times reported, citing an email sent by Kalanick to employees.

According to the email, the CEO spoke briefly with Trump and said he will be unable to serve on the economic council. He also noted that he did not mean to endorse Trump or his political agenda by joining the group.

Kalanick, who a few days previous issued a statement against Trump's temporary travel ban against citizens of Iran, Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen, was a late addition to Trump's policy forum. He had said he would raise the issue of the travel ban in Washington at Trump's first business advisory group meeting.
