Tech giants in the United States have joined forces to fight US President Donald Trumpís travel ban, but it looks like almost each of them donated money and services to the inauguration party.

A Politico report reveals that Microsoft contributed with one of the biggest amounts of money, as the software giant donated no less than $250,000 in cash, plus the same amount in technical services to the Presidential Inaugural Committee. The donations were made on December 28, according to the source.

Google itself also donated cash, although the exact amount hasnít been disclosed, as well as services, such as a live stream on YouTube that allowed users across the world to watch Trumpís inauguration. Facebook also chipped in, not with cash but with services, including Instagram photo booths during the inauguration party.

At first glance, itís not difficult to figure out why these companies have decided to donate money and technical services to the Inaugural Committee, especially because President Donald Trump announced on several occasion measures that would impact the tech industry in the United States.
