Nancy Pelosi, the House Minority Leader had even stated that there was bad advice given to Tim Cook which resulted in the event taking place.
Donald Trump had been publicity endorsed by Ryan during the Presidential election and there was also news that Apple had decided to opt out from the financial and technological support for the Republican national Convention this year.
