He speaks! Top White House aide Kushner gives rare remarks

The event is the first for the so-called American Technology Council, and was organized by the White House Office of American Innovation, which is helmed by White House Senior Adviser and Trump's son-in-law Jared Kushner.

Joining Cook in Washington are Alphabet Inc Executive Chairman Eric Schmidt, venture capital firm Kleiner Perkins Chairman John Doerr and the leaders of Microsoft Corp, IBM Corp, Mastercard Inc., Intel Corp, Qualcomm Inc, Oracle Corp, and Adobe Systems Inc., among others. The group is expected to meet for several hours and bring their conclusions to Trump for discussion.

"Some liked the decision, some didn't like the decision, but they see a bigger relationship and they've been very happy with the level of dialogue that comes out of this White House, and with the president", the official said.

Technology CEOS are expected at the White House Monday for an event focused on modernizing government.

The embattled CEO of Uber Travis Kalanick cut ties with the White House in an attempt to reduce public criticism. He said there was "a lot of room for optimization in the federal government". Kalanick is also on a leave of absence from Uber. "Many of our federal systems are decades old, with our 10 oldest being between 39 and 56 years old". It was one of Trump's latest initiatives to modernize the US government, which spends $80 billion annually on information technology (IT) and employs approximately 113,000 It professionals. They are discussing issues like technology infrastructure, cyber security and visas for foreign workers.

The 24-year-old defenseman and former first-round draft choice has been a solid player for the Canadiens the last few seasons. On the score sheet, the blue liner had a breakout season; he even opened up the season on the top pairing with Shea Weber .

"This is really safe ground", says Stewart Verdery, a lobbyist with Monument Policy Group, which works with Amazon and Microsoft.

The council also seeks to boost the cyber security of USA government IT systems and wants to learn from private-sector practices.

Following Trump's June 1 decision to withdraw from the Paris climate accords, Tesla (TSLA.O) Chief Executive Elon Musk and Walt Disney (DIS.N) CEO Robert Iger stepped down from White House advisory panels.

Spokesman Sean Spicer on Monday announced that Kushner would soon go to the Middle East on the latest peace drive, meeting leaders Benjamin Netanyahu and Mahmud Abbas.
