Tech giant Microsoft’s India-born CEO Satya Nadella has congratulated US President- elect Donald Trump and said he looks forward to working with all those elected in the general election.
“Yesterday, we witnessed the democratic process in action here in the US. The results are of importance around the world, and I know that interest is shared among Microsoft employees,” Nadella, 49, wrote on Microsoft-owned professional networking site LinkedIn yesterday.
“We congratulate the president-elect, and look forward to working with all those elected yesterday. Our commitment to our mission and values are steadfast, and in particular fostering a diverse and inclusive culture,” he said.
In a stunning result, Trump yesterday beat seasoned politician and Hillary Clinton in the knife-edge polls, defying the odds to become the 45th US President after starting off as a rank political outsider.
It was a heart-break for Democratic nominee Clinton, who was hoping to become the first woman president of the US, as Trump edged past her in a see-saw battle which he clinched by winning 288 electoral college votes to Clinton’s 215.
