Trump Meets with Tech Executives, Zuckerberg's Absents


On Wednesday, President-elect Donald Trump convened a meeting with the tech world top executives.

The meeting is the first major summit between technology leaders and Trump, who has had a shaky relationship with the tech industry and publicly criticized companies like Apple and Amazon while running for office.

The CEOs of the three most valuable public American companies by market cap Apple, Alphabet (Google), and Microsoft were included in the meeting with Trump, but they weren't the leaders who kept by his side.

Instead, Trump was flanked by Vice President-elect Mike Pence on his right and venture capitalist Peter Thiel, who supported him during the campaign, on his left.

Three Trump children were present at the meeting. actually four, if you include son-in-law Jared Kushner. Nobody from Twitter was at meeting despite Trump’s avid use of the platform. According to Republican National Committee spokesperson Sean Spicer, the table simply was not big enough. Mark Zuckerberg was noticeably absent but was represented by Sheryl Sandberg, the company's COO and a former chief of staff for the United States treasury department. Zuckerberg's decision to skip the high-profile meeting with Trump is unclear a Facebook spokesman declined to comment about the meeting and didn't respond to a question about why Zuckerberg wasn't there.
