Trump meets Satya Nadella
US President-elect Donald Trump met Silicon Valleys most powerful executives, including Indian-American CEO of Microsoft Satya Nadella, in a first high-profile summit with technology leaders with whom he was at odds throughout his campaign.
"I am here to help you folks do well," Trump told the group of Silicon Valley CEOs during a meeting, which his spokesman said was one of the series of such meetings, at the Trump Towers here.
The purpose of the meeting, the transition team said in a readout, was to begin a conversation and partnership "in order to spark innovation and create more jobs" in the US, particularly for working Americans.
During the meeting, Trump expressed an open mind and willingness to listen, which was greatly received by the industry leaders in attendance.
"There is nobody like you in the world. There is nobody like the people in this room and anything we can do to help this go along, we will be there for you and you will call my people, you will call me, it does not make any difference, we have no formal chain of command around here," Trump said.
