Over 3 Trillion reasons.

While Twitter may have not been in attendance, President-elect Donald Trump held a meeting with other top technology executives including Tim Cook, Larry Page, and Elon Musk last Wednesday at Trump Tower. The meeting, according to The New York Times, covered a variety of topics, mainly centering around immigration, jobs, and China …

Not including the “politicians” in the room, the list of attendees represented in excess of 3 TRILLION dollars of market capitalisation.

According to a pool report, Trump opened the meeting by praising the technology executives in attendance, saying “there’s nobody like the people in this room.” Trump then offered up an invitation for the various executives to come to him at any time if they need something: “Anything we can do to help this go along, we’ll be there for you. You’ll call my people, you’ll call me. It doesn’t make any difference,” Trump continued. “We have no formal chain of command around here.”

It’s without a doubt that Trump has clashed with most of the executives that were in attendance at some point, and he acknowledged that during his remarks.

The President-elect explained that everyone in the room is “doing well right now” and that he’s “honored by the bounce.”

“I’m here to help you folks do well. And you’re doing well right now and I’m very honored by the bounce. They’re all talking about the bounce. So right now everybody in this room has to like me — at least a little bit — but we’re going to try and have that bounce continue.”

Moving into policy discussion, Trump explained that his plan to slash the corporate tax rate will make it significantly easier to repatriate money kept overseas, according to USA Today.

“We’re going to make it a lot easier for you to trade across borders,” the President-elect said. “They’re going to do fair trade deals,” Trump said. “They’re going to make it easier for you to trade across borders, because there are a lot of restrictions, a lot of problems. If you have any ideas on that, that would be great.”

Incoming White House Chief of Staff Reince Priebus said that the meeting, which ran for over two hours, included “productive discussions about job creation and economic growth.”

The fences continue to be mended which no doubt will be welcomed by markets.
