Cook, other tech execs to meet with President Trump today

President Donald Trump will meet with the chief executives of technology companies including Apple CEO Tim Cook today as the White House looks to the private sector for help in cutting government waste and improving services, reports Reuters.

White House officials said on a conference call on Friday that the administration believed there was an "economic opportunity" to save up to $1 trillion over 10 years by significantly cutting government information technology costs, reducing government costs through improved IT, leveraging government buying power and cutting fraud across government agencies. The meeting with nearly 20 chief executives comes as the White House pushes to shrink government, cut federal employees and eliminate regulations.
