A leaked video published Wednesday night appears to show several of Google’s senior executives holding a large staff meeting following the 2016 election to reckon with President Donald Trump’s victory.
In the video, which was published by Breitbart, Google’s executives speculate about what motivated people to vote for Trump, as well as the role the company can play in informing people about the election. Executives also appear to discuss ways to defend what they called good values.
“We have no idea what direction this country will take… It’s a period of great uncertainty… especially for immigrants or minorities [and] women,” co-founder Sergey Brin told Google employees. “As an immigrant and a refugee, I certainly find this election deeply offensive, and I know many of you do too.”
