A couple of U.S. Olympians made the cut, too.

While it's not clear what they will be discussing, the 1.45pm meeting comes one day after Cook was among the guests present at President Trump's first official state dinner. The President's proposals to impose tariffs on Chinese goods aren't good news for Apple sales and production, and Apple isn't alone.

Earlier, Apple did not respond to a request for comment about what topics Cook planned to cover.

Cook, who attended Trump's first state dinner at the White House on Tuesday night, has publicly objected to the president's decision to end the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, or DACA, and criticized the U.S. president's comments after last year's violence in Charlottesville, Virginia.

Amazon and Best Buy partner to sell smart TVs
Amazon has started to open its own physical stores throughout the country and bought grocer Whole Foods a year ago as well. But Best Buy and Amazon did not say how much the TVs will cost or what size screens Toshiba and Insignia will be selling.

However, President Trump's tweets often offer clues, and here's what he said Wednesday morning: "Looking forward to my meeting with Tim Cook of Apple". Cook urged an easing of US-China tensions and called for more open trade after the trade dispute flared last month between the world's two largest economies.

USA and Chinese officials have been working to resolve the feud between the world's two largest economies. Besides Cook, other industry titans including Rupert Murdoch were at the event.

China is a key market for Apple as it is for many other companies. Cook also came out against what some viewed as a muted reaction to the white nationalist rally in Charlottesville, Virginia in August, and against some of the administration's immigration policies - specifically its position on the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA). He also hosted CNN president Jeff Zucker for the dinner.
