(SL) – Chess Move: Political misdirection at its finest! Did Trump deliberately take meeting with Kanye to overshadow canceled press conference about his companies?
He was under fire for delaying an announcement of how he’d handle his business affairs while in the White House and facing questions about his ties to Russia. But once he met with West, the lunacy of that gathering buried the other coverage quick.
Today Trump is set to meet with a host of top Silicon Valley executives including Apple’s Tim Cook, Tesla’s Elon Musk, Facebook’s Sheryl Sandberg, and more.
As yahoo reports, Trump now oversee policies that impact their businesses, from net neutrality to offshore tax profits. The meeting comes as the tech community looks to curry favor with the new administration.
