On Thursday, February 17, Obama is slated to sit down with Zuckerberg and other tech CEOs at a private dinner during his overnight trip to the West Coast. President Obama will not be making any public appearances in the San Francisco area.
According to White House Press Secretary Jay Carney, “The focus of the discussion is innovation and job creation, and these are representatives of businesses… who know a lot about private sector job growth.”
While innovation, one of the key talking points from the President’s recent State of the Union address, is to be the main topic of discussion, “Obviously other topics could come up,” said Carney.
For security reasons, neither the White House nor Facebook representatives can confirm any other details, but a full roster of attendees will be released soon.
Social media has played a big part in Obama’s presidency, and it has also played a huge role in international politics recently. We’re interested to learn what may come of the President’s meeting with San Francisco’s technology leaders, and we’ll report more about that meeting as details emerge.
WOW! This is going to be interesting.
