NBC: Trump had undisclosed dinner with Facebook's Zuckerberg and Thiel
President Trump hosted Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg and board member Peter Thiel at a White House dinner in October that was not disclosed, the social network giant confirmed to NBC late Wednesday.
Details: NBC notes that it's "unclear why the meeting was not made public or what Trump, Zuckerberg and Thiel discussed."
What they're saying: A Facebook spokesperson told the network, "As is normal for a CEO of a major U.S. company, Mark accepted an invitation to have dinner with the President and First Lady at the White House."
The big picture: Trump also had an unannounced meeting with Zuckerberg in September. The meetings took place as Zuckerberg faced pressure from regulators and lawmakers on privacy and other issues.
- Billionaire investor Thiel is the tech industry's highest-profile Trump supporter.
