Trump to meet with tech leaders Wednesday

President-elect Donald Trump is meeting with the nation's top technology executives on Wednesday for a discussion expected to focus on jobs. Those attending the meeting at Trump Tower in New York City include Apple CEO Tim Cook, Amazon's Jeff Bezos, Tesla's Elon Musk, Sheryl Sandberg of Facebook, Larry Page and Eric E. Schmidt of Google parent Alphabet, and Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella, as well as several other tech leaders. No set agenda has been announced, but Trump was critical of some Silicon Valley business practices during his campaign, including Apple's making of phones in China. The executives are expected to ask how Trump's planned immigration crackdown will affect policies on highly skilled tech workers.
