President-elect Donald Trump met Wednesday with top executives from the biggest U.S. technology companies, many of whom were among his fiercest critics during this year’s election campaign, but there were no signs of lingering animosity during their discussions.

Trump’s office said he wants to begin a “conversation and partnership” to spark innovation and create more jobs.
