WASHINGTON (AP) - President-elect Donald Trump has told group of technology executives that he's "here to help you folks do well."

Trump assembled the leaders at Trump Tower in New York on Wednesday.

Many in Silicon Valley were among Trump's sharpest critics during the campaign, expressing concerns his policies could stifle innovation and compromise digital privacy.

But Trump struck a positive message at the top of the meeting. He put it this way: "We want you to keep going with the incredible innovation" and said, "We will be there for you."

Among those at the meeting include Apple CEO Tim Cook, Larry Page of Alphabet (Google's parent company), Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos, and Tesla CEO Elon Musk.
