Tech Executives Gather At Trump Tower – Live Stream Video…

Today is a fun day to watch the Human Fish Tank –  Tech executives began to filter into Trump Tower for a meeting with President-elect Donald Trump. Tesla CEO Elon Musk (attended Sea Island), Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos (owns Washington Post) and Oracle co-CEO Safra Catz were among the first to arrive.

Apple CEO Tim Cook, Alphabet CEO Larry Page, Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella, IBM CEO Ginni Rometty and Intel CEO Brian Krzanich, are also expected to sit down with the president-elect to discuss jobs, immigration policy, free trade, cybersecurity and taxes.

        Trump adds Elon Musk, the CEO of Pepsi (who we’re all boycotting – per Breitbart – for her freak out on twitter blaming white men for the loss of the election), and the CEO of Uber who wants to put all the Taxi drivers out of business to his Economic Advisory Council.

        I hope this is to take up their time and energy so they can’t do more pain to Americans and then Trump just ignores them.

          I use Uber all the time, never ever ever took taxi’s. Know many others who do the same, so much of it is found business, rather than loss to taxis. Though technically lost business to others, as we are seriously contemplating the need for two cars as we only very rarely have occasion where two of us need a car at the same time.

          As my kids have reached drinking age and try that bar thing out for long enough to get bored it has been a sweet relief to send them out for the night departing in an uber, knowing they won’t be on the road.

          I just cancelled the auto insurance on the second vehicle to force a test after contemplating that it would take 57 trips in a year just to break even on insurance, never mind gas and wear and tear. There are not 57 times in a year we have a conflict and need 2 cars, so I think it is amore efficient use of resources to use uber right now.

          It’s the model of ordering the uber and watching it wend its way to my location on the app and having the transaction taken care of automatically, as well as the rating system (both driver and passenger) that I enjoy – have had some fairly gnarly taxi experiences in the (long distant) past, not one bad uber experience so far.

          Though I will admit, as I query the drivers, not all of them are factoring in wear and tear to the equation like they should be, nor are they withholding for schedule c. This was conceived of as part time work for people to pick up on the side (you show up to work by turning on your app – are not scheduled to work, can work as little as you want). People have turned it into full time work and are now demanding the benefits of being full time employees, which may squash the whole thing in the end. Other drivers do it for spending money, some use it solely to make a car payment on a more expensive car than they could otherwise own.

          By the time the court battles are over, Musk will have perfected the self driving car that will come pick me up, and I won’t have to worry about growing old and losing my license.

          I imagine there is loss to Taxi’s though – and some consideration for medallions needs to be considered, however, there aren’t enough medallions to cover the number of people who use Uber and it would never work the same way without the sheer number of Uber’s on the road. They would not be there if a medallion was in the mix, loss of supply would make service as undependable, reminiscent of people standing in the rain in NYC flagging dow taxis that drove by. I’d reinstate my insurance on 2nd car.

          So its a catch 22…

          Solutions?

            I’ve used Uber a few times. I went out to start the truck for a doctor’s appointment and it wouldn’t start. I called a cab and they told me it would take an hour or so. If I call Uber, it’s a very short wait. It has been cheaper for the few times I’ve used it when the truck was being worked on. I don’t have a preference either way, but sometimes you can’t just wait around.

          They signed a contract, the team developed several emojis, money was paid and then Dorsey said no to what was produced.

          That’s the short of it, but reneging on a contract isn’t something Trump is ever going to tolerate.

            Twitter is a financial failure that was heavily overvalued. In October they posted a loss of $90 million compared to the same quarter a year prior. in late January they lost four key executives. The user base is flat and ceased to grow. Excluding international users who use SMS for Twitter the number fell two million. Despite the 140 character limit and the confusion of @name and @reply syntax as well as broken windows and the inability to easily follow a conversation… The blocking of 3rd party clients who did Twitter better than Twitter. Twitter’s tech is broken just as much as it’s management. Apparently, Twitter failed to pass SalesForce’s smell test as they walked away from an acquisition. Every time there’s a rumor of another acquisition, Twitter’s stock jumps. It is so over-valued. I guess someone will snatch them quickly and quietly before the stock spikes or let it fall to abysmal levels for a deal. It’s far from a pleasant platform technically and socially. Who ever buys it will have to clean up the horrific mess. I’ve been trying to use it for years and really don’t get the popularity; it’s terrible! I follow a handful of people and it’s tricky to get the info you want.

  10. If this meeting follows the pattern, these tech CEO’s will emerge big fans of Trump.

    He will reassure them, he loves all Americans and all American businesses. He wants them all to be hugely successful and makes lots of money, his administration will help them do it.

    And he won’t demand tribute from them via their lobbyists.

    They will discover Donald Trump isn’t the monster they’ve been led to believe.

    Some of them might actually fall in love with him like Jim Brown.

And if you have any ideas on that, that would be great.” Translation: tell us how we can help you to make more money so you can hire more people here. This will be a symbiotic relationship that they can all appreciate. Win win for everyone.

    Obama managed to get the tech/social media to collude with him. Obama has weaponized every agency of government against opponents and these tech people eagerly allowed their social media vehicles to became another tool for that purpose.

    Being private companies made it possible to limit freedom of speech and opinion that they and Obama did not want.

    Turning the internet over to an Islamist dominated UN that wants to enforce blasphemy laws (against Islam only) is also likely to limit freedom of speech.

      This is Trump at his most generous, and I think many of these business men and women recognize it as that.

      He doesn’t want favors, he’s trying to say, Hey, Jump in here with me and help me lift, we’re going to Make America Great Again.

    It is interesting looking at the pictures of this meeting. Everything is well thought out. There are nameplates so it’s clear where people are expected to sit. Everything is equal – the name plates, water and chairs are all the same. The only thing that sets Trump apart are the flags behind him and the emblem on the wall above his head.

    As to his kids being there. He has been grooming them to take over his business, I’m not surprised they are there. He’s using every resource he has to get as much done as possible. I see them being there on many levels. First as someone else mentioned they are younger and come into this from perhaps a different mindset. Secondly, I’m sure there is small talk before and after and if they mingle they can pickup on things that others may miss.

        I am not bothered by “the kids” there at all — I know that “the apprentice” was reality television. However, I have noticed that Trump demeanor and way of doing business was not an “act” – -his reasoning, values and principles (if you watch those the show) were an insight then to what he brings to the White House today.

        Each show, the teams were tasked with a project, Trump would assigned a trusted person for each team to be his “eyes and ears”, then afterwards they were all summons to the “boardroom” — Trump, and both of his “eyes and ears” on one side of the table and both teams on the other side. The would discuss the project, announce the winner, and the losing team leader (for that project) would usually choose 1 or 2 people to bring back into the boardroom for Donald Trump to choose out of to fire. They would all leave, however the ones picked w/ the team leader would wait in lobby until Trump and his “eyes and ears” discussed who should be fired.

        The reason I explained (not sure if anyone watched the show).. is that many times his kids would be on the show as his “eyes and ears” (others included past winners or executives from his Trump businesses)… BUT you see him really ask them their honest opinions, and they didn’t hold back — I see the same in what you mentioned that they will tell him and talk freely and they are 100% loyal and honest when it comes to business.. in the show, when the 3 would come back in – he usually would “interrogate” them (sometimes 3 on 1) — but regardless, of what was spoken about during their meeting prior to the 3 returning – sometimes it was dependent on the intense questioning — it was HIS decision, without hesitation, at times opposite the advice he got from his “eyes and ears” — which was truly impressive.

        Sorry that was so long – but I see his kids in that role — you can see when they are introducing themselves, and his begins to speak — that Ivanka scans the table and is watching the faces of the people around the table again being the “eyes and ears” for her father, which now our country is HIS BUSINESS!

      The family is working as a team and is very used to working as a organic whole. I am glad he has them to depend on.

      In the future this experience will undoubtedly help them. Experience and relationships are always beneficial. But that is not there same as direct benefit to an insider deal due to nepotism.

      When I think of nepotism I think of someone getting a paid job or benefits or inside deals to family members. The Trump children are not being paid or gaining inside deals/financially. They are there to serve the country and help their father.

    GOOGLE BET HEAVILY ON CLINTON

    Liberal-leaning Silicon Valley bet heavily on Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton winning the White House, and many technology companies have found themselves scrambling in the wake of Trump’s election. But Google, which forged deep ties to the Obama White House and was the largest corporate contributor to Clinton’s campaign, appears to have been caught especially off guard, Washington insiders said.

    Only 33 employees of Google and its parent company Alphabet donated $201 or more to Trump, for a total of $23,300. Clinton received donations from 1,359 Google or Alphabet employees for a total of $1.6 million. Google NetPAC, the company’s political action committee, made 56 percent of its contributions to Republicans in the 2016 election cycle, according to data from the Center for Responsive Politics.

    So, what does Google give a President Elect who has everything, been elected, and doesn’t need or want your damn money.

    Sundance! You getting this?

    It just stopped mid sentence.

    It was a panel called by Cummings. There is news media, but not a Republican in the room.
    The last speaker claims Republicans were invited, but none were there.

    It came back on.

    They are “trying to help the president” cough cough “to avoid entanglements” and “adhere to the promises he made” to his supporters. Oh how nice, the dems are concerned about the Deplorables. But “this is not partisan.”

    (Of course there is no mention of promises made by Obama, entanglements of their former candidate, or the fact that Bill Clinton clearly stated that his wife was part of his presidency!
    These *+#%wipes are too late to do a dam& thing except snarl. They were told that it was up to Congress whether emoluments were a problem. Faces fell.)

    Just my opinion, and I know many won’t agree, but this is how I feel.

    I don’t hold any animosity towards any of these people in that room. Lots of them are social justice warriors, yes, but that comes from a backwards belief that they are helping people who need to be helped. They do that out of compassion, they’re just completely ignorant about how it’s harmful instead of helpful.

    The main thing these people are ‘guilty’ of is the same thing you can accuse most large corporations of, outsourcing jobs.

    Donald Trump has the cure for that disease.

    I’m not going to confine myself to hatred for Bill Gates because I don’t agree with everything his charity is doing, or whatever. Bill Gates is a genius, and anything President Trump can do to work with Bill Gates to make America a better place for ALL citizens I’m down with.

    Same thing with Elon Musk. Yes, he gets a government subsidy, yes, that should stop… but the man is doing things people have said were impossible for a long, long time. Will I be driving one of his cars? No, I like my internal combustion 60’s and 70’s cars personally, but many people will. Musk is doing most of his business in America, has hired thousands of people, built factories right here in America, and I appreciate that. I’m not on the Elon Musk hate train.

    I have faith, and you may think it’s naivete, but I have faith that SOME, not ALL, SOME of these tech leaders will do more to help America after this meeting. I think that’s a good thing.
