After news was announced that Trump would be meeting with Silicon Valley venture capitalists and entrepreneurs in coming weeks, ex-Twitter CEO Dick Costolo lashed out Friday night.
“If you don’t get invited to this meeting and want to know what it was like, just drink a bottle of gin and then waterboard yourself,” Costolo tweeted.

Costolo is referring to a meeting Trump held when he was the president-elect. Trump spearheaded a group meeting with high-tech CEOs at Trump Tower in 2016.
President Trump has a rocky relationship with some of Silicon Valley’s biggest stars, most notably Elon Musk, Tesla CEO, who recently stepped down from each of the advisory councils to the president on which he was serving. Musk removed himself due to Trump’s departure from the Paris climate accord.
Am departing presidential councils. Climate change is real. Leaving Paris is not good for America or the world.

Trump called the meeting this month to talk about emerging technology, such as drones.
