US President Trump to hold meet with executives of tech companies

In yet another move that is likely aimed at deliberations over tech innovation and also jobs scenario, the Donald Trump administration will meet the top executives of the technology companies.

This is amid the speculations that the administration has had occasionally strained relations with high-technology companies.

Chief executives expected to participate include Microsoft Corp’s Satya Nadella, Alphabet’s Sundar Pichai, Qualcomm’s Steven Mollenkopf and Oracle Corp’s Safra Catz, a White House official confirmed.
It was informed that the sessions will focus on jobs of the future in the technology space, the White House official said.

President Donald Trump has had many run-ins with technology companies since he took office, including his accusations without evidence of bias by Alphabet’s Google, Facebook, and Twitter and trying to silence people.

Next week, the House Judiciary Committee will hold a hearing with Pichai to discuss Republican allegations of bias against conservatives – a charge Google has denied.

Trump met in June 2017 with the heads of 18 US technology companies including Apple, and Microsoft, seeking their help to make the government’s computing systems more efficient.
