President Trump welcomed technology executives to the White House Monday, for an American Technology Council roundtable discussion.

While there, Apple CEO Tim Cook reportedly advised the president he should show “more compassion” on his immigration policies, and do more to welcome immigrant workers.

New York Times reporter Maggie Haberman tweeted out a multi-part report from the meeting, as follows:

“Tim Cook told POTUS that the administration needed to show more heart on immigration issues, mentioned DACA, at tech CEO meeting.”

“Cook said tech employees are nervous and while they don’t think the administration’s intent is to make them feel targeted, they need a clear signal. POTUS replied what’s needed is ‘comprehensive’ immigration reform. No comment from Apple or White House so far.”

“But this is the second time in five mos that POTUS has left someone with the impression in closed mtg that he favored the type of bill Jeb backed.”

The Daily Caller noted Cook has previously publicly spoken out in opposition to Trump’s executive orders on immigration, and has continued to favor the DACA program, which Trump has indicated he will also continue to support.

President Trump reportedly told the executives at the meeting, “We’re working very diligently with everybody, including Congress, on immigration, so that you can get the people you want in your companies. It’s been a tremendous problem that you’ve had over a long period of time.”
