A member of Oracle’s Cloud division took to LinkedIn to write his resignation from the company.

George A. Polisner wrote, “I must resign from this once great company,” in response to statements made by Safra A. Catz, an Oracle executive, at a meeting hosted by the president-elect with leaders from Silicon Valley at Trump Tower.

After meeting with Trump, Catz wrote in an emailed statement to The Washington Post, “I plan to tell the president-elect that we are with him and are here to help in any way we can,” after she was asked what she planned to tell Trump, during the meeting.

“If he can reform the tax code, reduce regulation, and negotiate better trade deals, the U.S. technology community will be stronger and more competitive than ever.”

According to The Washington Post, Catz is a Republican who has known Trump prior to the meeting. Catz has since been recruited to join Trump’s transition team.

That was enough for Polisner. He threw Catz’s words back at her, writing in his LinkedIn post, “I am not with President-elect Trump, and I am not here to help him in any way. In fact–when his policies border on the unconstitutional, the criminal and the morally unjust–I am here to oppose him in every possible and legal way.”

Polisner also created an online petition calling on Oracle to stand against Trump. In his petition he wrote:

“Donald Trump, is the son of a wealthy real estate developer and racist, Fred Trump. Trump has suggested violence against his opponent and he has stated that if he doesn’t win the election it must be rigged (which is incendiary in the America of today). He has continued to attack immigrants calling Mexicans criminals and rapists while suggesting that we ban Muslims from entering our country. He’s talked about torturing prisoners of war and killing their families -actions that would be major violations of international law (aside from being morally and ethically wrong). He disrespected a father who lost his son in the Iraq war. He has continually denigrated women—claiming sexual assault in the military is expected and that women must rely upon their sex appeal to progress their careers.”

    President-Elect Donald Trump wants to enable states with dedicated grants and implementation standards related to diversity, inclusion, and targeted hiring the resources necessary to spur investment in under served black neighborhoods. Stopping gun violence, revitalizing education, creating jobs, replacing substandard housing, and strengthening black families is a mandate we secured for him.

    That is, Mr. Trump owes his victory to “predominately black Democratic strongholds” who were convinced to give him more votes than the previous Republican candidates. African Americans (like Todd Elliott Koger) proudly convinced hundreds of thousands blacks to “boycott” the vote and/or voting “straight” Democrat.

    But if President-Elect Donald Trump wants intensive support with operations, curriculum, instruction, and “school choice” for persistently low-achieving inner city public school districts . . . If he wants to provide career training in high-growth industries, manufacturing, and informational technology, he can’t just parade the usual leadership group of “black simpletons” in front of the news media’s cameras.

    To encourage job creation, community redevelopment, and sustainable “BLACK LIFE” Mr. Trump must give us at least one “legitimate and capable” brother and/or sister in the “West Wing” of the White House with him to direct a “PLAN” to put black boys and girls to work removing inner city blight, building new affordable housing, and “MAKE AMERICA GREAT” for black inner city families.
