More businesses are publicly stating opposition to President Trump and his policies—but not all. Some companies (like Uber) have been coming under fire for supporting, or being perceived as supporting, the White House. Critics, liberals and conservatives who disagree with a company's political advocacy, or lack thereof, are calling for people to boycott brands. Others say business is still business regardless of politics. Companies must work with whoever is in power. What do you think?

What is a “seat at the table” worth—and what does it cost?
