Tech Gods Arrive At Trump's Tech Summit

Some of technology's most prominent leaders and CEOs have made the pilgrimage from the Tesla-lined streets of Silicon Valley to the slightly more civilised New York City to attend President Donald J. Trump's tech summit.

Some highlights include Tesla and SpaceX founder and CEO Elon Musk, Facebook's chief operating officer Sheryl Sandberg, Apple CEO Tim Cook and Microsoft's CEO Satya Nadella. This whole meeting could be pretty awkward, especially considering how much crap Trump talked about the tech industry in general during the campaign.

Jeff Bezos, CEO of Amazon and owner of The Washington Post, was the first big name to arrive, after Oracle CEO Safra Catz was spotted earlier today in the building.

Palantir CEO Alex Karp then arrived at Trump Tower. Palantir, a secretive data analytics startup worth billions, just won a key battle against the US Army.

Next, Intel CEO Brian Krzanich completed his journey to Trump Tower.

Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella and IBM CEO Ginni Rometty also arrived.

Larry Page, CEO of Alphabet (Google), and Eric Schmidt, Executive Chairman of Alphabet, arrived to pay their respects.

Facebook COO Sheryl Sandberg was there as well.

Reporters were briefly allowed inside the meeting.

Then Trump and Peter Thiel tried out doing the ol' handshake/high five that can be really tricky to pull off.
