They were not the only ones to adhere to the meeting held on an island off the coast of Georgia this weekend, as Napster founder and early Facebook investor Sean Parker participated in the American Enterprise Institute’s annual World Forum as well.
As Huffington Post reports, the event also included the participation of senior Republicans. While the ousting of Donald Trump was not on the public agenda, the report from Huffington Post says that this was an important topic among the discussion points of the event.
It is unclear whether the top CEOs mentioned above discussed a strategy to stop Donald Trump from winning the 2016 Presidential Election, but the report indicates public expressions of hope that Trump will be eventually defeated in the race for the US Presidency.
This is not Elon Musk’s first involvement in politics, as the PayPal co-founder, Tesla and SpaceX CEO, as well as a successful entrepreneur, came to a summit in Europe last year to talk to world leaders about climate change. Musk obviously wants to make a change in the way the world works, and stopping Trump appears to be one of his desires.
As for the other top executives present at the event, since Donald Trump publicly suggested a boycott of Apple products until they unlock an iPhone for the FBI, it is easy to see why the Cupertino giant’s CEO wants to stop the real estate magnate turned politician from becoming POTUS.
Interestingly, the report did not include any suggestions that the participants at the secret meeting would support a particular candidate for the title of the 45th President of the United States of America. It is likely that each CEO has their preference here, but most of the tech leaders present did not want Donald Trump to become US President, that much is clear.
