Apple CEO Tim Cook and Vice President of Environment, Policy and Social Initiatives Lisa Jackson attended President Donald Trump’s first official state dinner. The event was given to honor French President Emmanuel Macron, and other business people to attend included media mogul Rupert Murdoch, FedEx Corp. CEO Fred Smith, Blackstone Group CEO Stephen Schwarzman, and others. Politicians included Former Secretary of State Henry Kissinger, Republican leaders of Congress, Vice President Mike Pence, Chief Justice John Roberts, and more. Bloomberg covered Mr. Cook’s and Ms. Jackson’s appearance at the event, as well as some of the notable administration officials who did not attend. Also not invited were any opposition members of Congress, but Ms. Jackson was a member of the previous administration, where she led the EPA. Current EPA administrator Scott Pruitt was not in attendance. It’s one of the highest profile political events attended by Mr. Cook, one that put him in direct contact with politicians and business leaders from around the world, including President Trump.

    In fact, I understand that he’s meeting today with the POTUS, though not sure if it’s a one on one. Perhaps we’ll get a follow up on what they discussed.
