The CEO of Intel, Brian Krzanich, met with President Donald Trump in the White House today and spoke to reporters from the Oval Office. With Trump sitting at his desk, Krzanich described the company’s new $7 billion investment which will create new American tech jobs.
Following the publicized meeting, a CNN panel discussed the event, with CNN chief political analyst Gloria Borger calling it a “semi-advertisement” while also noting that Krzanich seemed a “little uncomfortable” because he was likely waiting on a question surrounding his opposition to Trump’s travel ban.
Meanwhile, political analyst David Gregory provided some sharp criticism of what they just witnessed.
“The whole scene was bizarre,” he said. “I have never seen the Oval Office used for this kind of dog and pony show with the president seated and a very uncomfortable-looking CEO literally selling his wares.”
Gregory did note that if you are a supporter of the president, you will see Trump as a “president of action” and “more good news.”
