A bunch of tech CEOs attended a meeting with President Donald Trump. It was the second such meeting where photographers were invited in to take a few photos and listen to the president say a few words.
Among other things, Trump made a joke about how the Democratic National Committee could have used Akamai's help on cybersecurity. The group also talked about issues like improving the government's technology to catch up with the private sector and immigration reform.
During the meeting Monday, photographer Chip Somodevilla captured this candid shot of Apple CEO Tim Cook, Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella, and Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos looking less than happy to be there.
