WTF? How can an openly gay CEO sit there and just take it?
That doesn't matter. He's the CEO of one of the most influential companies in the world. There are stakeholders that want Apple to play ball and be on good terms with the President-elect. That's just Business.
 
Here is probably how it went down-

Trump: Hi everyone. Just letting you know that you're going to move all your manufacturing operations back to the mainland USA or you're going to pay INSANELY HIGH TARIFFS on your products coming back in from overseas.

Tech Leaders raise their hands: But but...

Trump: No need for questions. I wasn't asking for your input. I just wanted to make that statement. It's time for lunch. Later, gents.

Money before country? Well that is how GOP played this election. Party before country.

this is the most uncomfortable photo i've seen in a LONG time.

god damnit I don't like my president elect
 
Only one I'd trust in that meeting that has the betterment of human kind in mind would be Elon.

Yep, wolfs and sharks the rest of them. They probably ate leftovers of their own grandmothers for lunch intermission while checking their stock prices incessantly.

Why the fuck are Trumps kids in all of his meetings? Tell me that's not strangest thing ever.

That awkward as fuck handshake.

Seriously. I thought they were going to be running his sham of a 'blind trust'. I don't understand why this isn't continually being questioned.

Then again we moved on from the outrage that is Steve Bannon in twenty minutes, so that's just how things are going to be from now on.
 
I'm familiar with Trump alarming desires to dismantle scientific research, but is there a way they may sabotage the tech sector by meddling in scientific research? Or are they relatively safe so long as smartphones keep getting made?

Now what's the next step in your master plan?
The title is inaccurate. It should read Trump meets tech leaders, entertains them for a few hours, then promptly forgets everything they said after they leave the room.
