US President elect Donald Trump seems to have run into trouble as more than 200 employees of technology companies including Alphabet Inc’s, Google, Twitter Inc and Salesforce have pledged not to help Trump’s administration build a data registry to track people based on their religion or assist in mass deportations. Donald Trump has clashed with Silicon Valley on several issues during the campaign, including immigration, government surveillance and encryption. The protest by Tech majors began with about 60 signatures but had more than tripled within hours of publication, comes a day before several technology company executives are due to meet with the real-estate developer in New York City. The letter promises that these tech majors will not participate in creating databases of identifying information for the US government on the basis of race, religion or national origin, that could facilitate such targeting and to oppose any misuse of data at their respective organizations considered illegal or unethical.
