Apple, Google Chiefs Visit the White House

Apple CEO Tim Cook and Google CEO Sundar Pichai visited the White House today, although it was not clear if they were there for the same meeting. The White House visits come just days after reports the Department of Justice would undertake antitrust reviews of both companies.

Mr. Cook was at the White House to discuss job training in connection to his membership on the American Workforce Policy Advisory Board, Bloomberg reported. The board is part of the White House’s efforts to increase employment opportunities for American workers.

“Tim Cook from Apple, who was here today, he’s a real force both on the advisory board and his commitment to life-long learning generally,” said Ivanka Trump, a daughter and advisor to President Trump, according to Bloomberg.

A source confirmed that Mr. Pichai was at the White House but the company declined to comment on the visit. On Wednesday, Mr. Pichai attended a U.S. Chamber of Commerce event on Capitol Hill where he expressed support for the Trump administration’s planned U.S.-Mexico-Canada Trade Agreement, Bloomberg reported. The White House is urging Congress to pass the trade pact, which would be a signature achievement for President Trump.
