On Wednesday, President-elect Donald Trump convened a meeting with the top execs from the tech world.
The meeting is the first major summit between technology leaders and Trump, who has had a shaky relationship with the tech industry and publicly criticised 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.
