President-elect Donald Trump will meet with a number of CEOs from America’s largest tech companies next week and the media is getting excited about who’s invited.
Axar.az reports that, Trump has issued invitations to several top executives of major US tech companies, according to media reports. As the topic of the meeting, which is scheduled to happen in Trump Tower in Manhattan next week, remains undisclosed, the media are talking about who is invited.
According to one report, sources close to the situation have already confirmed Alphabet CEO Larry Page, Apple CEO Tim Cook and Facebook COO Sheryl Sandberg as attendees. They are likely to be joined by Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella, Cisco CEO Chuck Robbins, IBM CEO Ginni Rometty, Intel CEO Brian Krzanich, and Oracle CEO Safra Catz.
This list is likely not full, because many invitations went out late this week, according to Recode.
Those left off the invite list include Netflix CEO Reed Hastings, Salesforce CEO Marc Benioff, Slack CEO Stewart Butterfield and Dropbox CEO Drew Houston. Uber CEO Travis Kalanick and Airbnb CEO Brian Chesky were invited but are now out of the country, which might be an excuse not to attend, according to media.
Unlike Bezos, Hewlett-Packard CEO Meg Whitman, who compared Trump to Hitler and Mussolini and called him a "dishonest demagogue," will not be present at the meeting.
