Trump's Commerce Secretary nominee, Wilbur Ross, at his confirmation hearing"Well I think all aspects of internet need encouragement. There are issues, technical issues, privacy issues and such as that come up. So it's not a simple subject, but when President-elect Trump convened the meeting of the high tech CEO's some weeks ago, he was kind enough to have me very much involved with that. I was impressed with how willing the high tech people were to work with the new administration to try to deal with these kinds of issues, even though as it happened during the campaign, we were not necessarily the recipient of much support from them. So I think that was a very good thing, and some of those leaders have followed up with me subsequently with more specific suggestions."
