“Every president-elect deserves our congratulations, best wishes and support for the country as a whole.

As a company, Microsoft joins many others in congratulating President-elect Donald J. Trump and Vice President-elect Mike Pence”, he wrote.
According to The Verge, “Nadella may be congratulating president-elect but he’s also crossing his fingers that Trump doesn’t follow through on some of his tech-adverse campaign promises.”
