Tech Titan CEOs Strategize at the White House

President Donald Trump is facing yet another lawsuit.

In attendance were chief executives of several drone companies including Kespry Inc, AirMap, Airspace Inc, Measure UAS Inc, Trumbull Unmanned, and PrecisionHawk Inc.

"Interviews with 22 senior administration officials, outside advisers and Trump confidants and allies reveal a White House still trying, after five months of halting progress, to establish a steady rhythm of governance while also indulging and managing Trump's combative and sometimes self-destructive impulses", the Post reported.

A notable pair of absentees from the drone discussion were Amazon, and Google's parent company Alphabet - two firms that have spent heavily on drone delivery research and development.

The meeting will focus on "how government can help American ingenuity and technological innovation continue to thrive", the official said.

Other sources say that Trump was anxious that he wasn't getting good legal advice from McGahn before his personal lawyer Marc Kasowitz took the reins.

"The chief usher is a very important need for the White House", said Bob Scanlan, who served as White House florist from 1998-2010. She declined further comment on the potential changes.

Others attending include Alphabet Inc (GOOGL.O) Executive Chairman Eric Schmidt, venture capital firm Kleiner Perkins Chairman John Doerr and the CEOs of Microsoft Corp (MSFT.O) International Business Machines Corp (IBM.N), Intel Corp (INTC.O), Qualcomm Inc (QCOM.O), Oracle Corp (ORCL.N) and Adobe Systems Inc (ADBE.O). The group also sued Trump earlier this year, accusing him of violating the Constitution by contining to own and profit from his sprawling business empire, according to The New York Times.

500 Startups "talked it over a lot before we committed", McClure said in a text message.

AT&T Randall Stephenson, who arrived late to the meeting, also gave Trump a demonstration on the advantage of 5G Internet using a small city model complete with lights.

In his new position he will be in charge of household staff and operations and in charge of nearly 90 employees. "If your teenage son was locked in his bedroom this long, you wouldn't say, 'Hey buddy, are you doing extra credit homework in there?'"

"With all of the recently reported electronic surveillance, intercepts, unmasking and illegal leaking of information, I have no idea whether there are "tapes" or recordings of my conversations with James Comey, but I did not make, and do not have, any such recordings", he tweeted.
