Trump's tweets have routinely knocked the White House off message. We gave them the "A" tour.

The drone industry has much at stake, as the government seeks to regulate the fast-growing market for unmanned aircraft.

Indeed, Trump frequently sends out streams of angry tweets early in the mornings, including several on Thursday lambasting the Democratic National Committee's handling of hacks during the 2016 election. Both officials are listed as members of the American Technology Council.

In the Internet of things, a growing number of objects and devices will become web-connected-everything from refrigerators and thermostats to cars and industrial machines.

These sources added that the event occurred during a meeting about special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation, and Trump's frustration with claims that he attempted to obstruct justice in firing former FBI Director James Comey.

"The waiver process as it stands could be streamlined and eventually automated", said Jesse Stepler, the Chief Operating Officer of Measure, a company that operates one of the largest commercial drone fleets in the country. Thursday's event, titled "American Leadership in Emerging Technology", is the second big piece of the White House's Technology Week, continuing on from Tuesday's discussion about modernizing government technology.

Others took it a bit more personal, as one commenter said, "Heartless to frolic on the lawn of the people's house while they suffer".

Spokespeople for Amazon and Google did not return a request for comment.

The lawn of the White House was decorated to look like Manhattan's Central Park, which was apparently a tribute to the New Yorkers who now spend their weekends in Washington DC.

Historically, chief ushers - who act as a kind of general manager - have come to the job with deep experience within the White House and gone on to serve long tenures.

Apple CEO Tim Cook, who has castigated Trump for his travel ban and the US withdrawal from the Paris climate treaty, responded with praise for Trump's senior adviser and son-in-law, Jared Kushner, who is leading the administration's technology sector outreach. "Definitely some strong opinions".

Telecoms executives were also in attendance, including AT&T Inc. Joined by executives from other companies including T-Mobile, Sprint and Verizon, Stephenson preached the importance of government support for wireless infrastructure.
