Tim Cook isn't one of Donald Trump's biggest fans. On the campaign trail, the president elect called for a boycott of the company's products over encryption rights. Still, the Apple CEO is a pragmatist. On Wednesday, he urged his employees to move on from the election.

In a memo obtained by BuzzFeed, Cook quoted Martin Luther King Jr.: "'If you can't fly, then run. If you can't run, then walk. If you can't walk, then crawl, but whatever you do, you have to keep moving forward.'"

Cook continued by saying the company is open and supportive to all employees. "We celebrate the diversity of our team here in the United States and around the world--regardless of what they look like, where they come from, how they worship, or whom they love," he wrote in the memo.

He also encouraged employees to support one another, writing, "I've always looked at Apple as one big family, and I encourage you to reach out to your co-workers if they are feeling anxious."
