Trump to Meet With Google CEO, Other Tech Heads in October


U.S. President Donald Trump has revealed plans to meet with Google CEO Sundar Pichai and other tech executives this month at a social media summit.

White House economic adviser Larry Kudlow revealed on Tuesday that the administration hoped Facebook and Twitter would send representatives to the meeting. Kudlow additionally said that the event would most likely happen in mid-October, though no date has been set.

Prominent conservatives, including the president, have accused Facebook, Google and Twitter of silencing right-leaning voices on their platforms, a suspected practice called “shadow banning.”

Kudlow had a meeting with Pichai last Friday, which he described as “great.”

Pichai drew flack from senators last month after failing to send an executive to a hearing, and he has agreed appear at another.
