Here's who sat where during Trump's big meeting with tech leaders


On Wednesday, president-elect Donald Trump convened a meeting with the top execs from the tech world.

The meeting marks the first major summit between technology leaders and Trump, who has had a shaky relationship with the tech industry and who publicly criticized 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 - are included in the meeting with Trump, but those weren't the leaders who kept by his side.


Instead, Trump was flanked by vice president elect Mike Pence on his left and venture capitalist and Peter Thiel (who supported him during the election campaign) on the right.
