New Delhi: Despite the odds, Donald Trump finally came out victorious in the recently concluded US Presidential election beating the favoured-Hillary Clinton in the race to the White House.

Not many favoured him, which is evident from the protest that has already started against his election to the top post in the United States.

Taking a note from it, Apple CEO Tim Cook has written to his employees, asking them to move forward, despite their political difference on the President-elect.

Here's the full text of Tim Cook's mail to Apple employees as it appeared on BuzzFeed.

Team,

I've heard from many of you today about the presidential election. In a political contest where the candidates were so different and each received a similar number of popular votes, it's inevitable that the aftermath leaves many of you with strong feelings.

We have a very diverse team of employees, including supporters of each of the candidates. Regardless of which candidate each of us supported as individuals, the only way to move forward is to move forward together. I recall something Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. said 50 years ago: "If you can't fly, then run. If you can't run, then walk. If you can't walk, then crawl, but whatever you do you have to keep moving forward." This advice is timeless, and a reminder that we only do great work and improve the world by moving forward.

While there is discussion today about uncertainties ahead, you can be confident that Apple's North Star hasn't changed. Our products connect people everywhere, and they provide the tools for our customers to do great things to improve their lives and the world at large. Our company is open to all, and we celebrate the diversity of our team here in the United States and around the world - regardless of what they look like, where they come from, how they worship or who they love.

I've always looked at Apple as one big family and I encourage you to reach out to your co-workers if they are feeling anxious.

Let's move forward - together!

Best,
Tim
