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.
