Trump Invites Tech Leaders to Roundtable Next Week BUT...

President-elect Donald Trump has invited technology industry leaders to a roundtable next week in New York, reports USA Today.

The invitation for the Dec. 14 summit was sent by Trump's chief of staff Reince Priebus, Jared Kushner, Trump's son-in-law, and transition team adviser Peter Thiel.

But the only confirmed name, at this point, that will be attending is Cisco CEO Chuck Robbins.

Trump last week announced the formation of a business council chaired by Stephen Schwarzman, CEO of investment firm Blackstone Group and comprised of the leaders of major U.S. corporations including GE, GM and Boeing.

Noticeably absent were the chief executives of Apple, Facebook and Alphabet's Google.

Google and Facebook declined to comment on whether they would attend the Trump roundtable.
