Jeff Bezos said a gathering of tech titans Wednesday with President-elect Donald J. Trump had been very productive, and that the Amazon.com CEO emphasized to the incoming administration that innovation was key in creating new jobs.
Bezos, Microsofts Satya Nadella, Apples Tim Cook and other high-flying tech executives attended a meeting at Trump Tower in New York with the president elect and his transition team.
It was an encounter with a man who, as a candidate, rubbed many in the technology industry the wrong way with restrictive views on immigration and other social issues.
Trump didnt seem very happy with Big Tech either. He lambasted Apple for manufacturing iPhones abroad and singled out Bezos, who owns The Washington Post in addition to Amazon.

Trump made them an offer they couldn’t refuse....(Theme from “Godfather” playing softly in background)
What if Trump says NO H1Bs?
Went to the Gym today because
i don’t wanna
EVER GET TIRED OF WINNING YET
Trump should deny press credentials to the WaCompost at White House press briefings. See how that comports Bezos, then get back to us.
Then they will have to train Americans ....give the Techs loans to train American youth.
Is this when the San Fran ‘puter tech biz start to suck up to Trump?
We all have to do our part ;-)
Where is Trump’s Nobel Peace Prize? He’s already done a crapload more to deserve it than Obama had when he received his.
We need to seriously reform education. Not just K-12 but also higher education. The federal govt spends billions of dollars on student loans for even the dumbest college courses
Have a look at this photo:
Looks like these folks were told the H1-B party is over.
Jeff Bezos is worth, what, $75 Billion? And he paid only $250 Million for the WaPo. I think he’ll survive.
Say what you want about Bezos, but he has built a world class company. i really can’t imagine getting along without Amazon.
Got your figures wrong on net worth, check it. “i really cant imagine getting along without Amazon.” I can and do. Get real.
Or even to allow citizens an opportunity to reenter the world of work and confidently rebuild their careers. In turn, these individuals can provide value to an employer as well as skills and perspectives that otherwise go untapped with guest workers.
Alternative: Their credentials are only valid for briefings delivered by Milo Yiannopoulos or someone as equally talented in offending leftists. Increase or decrease pool subject to him as desired.
How many companies can exist for over 15 years before they actually turn a profit? There’s more to Amazon than meets the eye.
Yeah and we can also get by with kerosene lamps. but why would anyone want to? :)
“94.6 million right here at home on the sidelines that would be happy to earn 50 percent of what they were making before you replaced them with Sanjay. Not another H1-B until I here the giant sucking sound of qualified engineers in the US leaving the barrel.”
