A few days after one of the tensest elections on US soil in recent memory, Microsoft has put up a blog post congratulating President and Vice President elects, Joe Biden and Kamala Harris.
Calling for a push towards a common goal, policies, and politics separation.
In a long message posted by Microsoft President Brad Smith, the Redmond based company acknowledged that everybody must work together to address the gaps that have lately been created in the country.
“Election Day this year turned into a very long and tense election week, with many Americans glued to their screens anxiously awaiting the outcome. It has been commonplace to hear pundits speculate that we have seldom seemed such a divided country. If true, this also makes a different proposition even more self-evident. If we are to move forward as a nation, we must build new bridges to close the gaps that divide us.”
He further says that Americans share more common ground than most pundits acknowledge, particularly when it comes to technology issues. This makes for an opportunity to separate policies from politics in order to make a real difference in the lives of people.
Additionally, there is also a priority need to work with the rest of the world. While this day may be all about the United States, collaboration with the rest of the world is essential for the country:
“This opportunity to build new bridges extends to the international arena as well. We live in a decade that has started with a virus that respects no border and carbon that moves in the atmosphere not just from country to country, but from continent to continent. More and more of the issues of our day require stronger collaboration between the United States and the rest of the world.”
