Google, Amazon, and Microsoft Donated to Donald Trump’s Inauguration

Feb 08, 2017

Before voicing their opposition to President Donald Trump's immigration policies, a handful of tech giants offered their greenbacks to the commander-in-chief's inauguration.

Amazon (amzn), Google (googl), and Microsoft all donated both cash and services to the now president's January inauguration, according to a late Tuesday Politico report citing federal ethics documents and sources familiar with the matter. Microsoft (msft) alone gave $250,000 in cash, and the same amount in services.

While Facebook (fb) made no cash donation, the company did provide Instagram photos booths and a mini Oval Office for those celebrating Trump's inauguration, Politico confirmed.

Roughly a week later, the same tech giants spoke out against Trump's ban on immigration from seven Muslim-majority nations.

Corporate America has regularly donated to inaugural committees in past years, regardless of political party. For President Barack Obama's second inauguration, Microsoft donated roughly $2 million in cash and services, according to data from the Federal Election Commission.
