Tesla CEO Elon Musk will not be in attendance on Monday for President Donald Trump's first meeting with his American Technology Council at the White House.
Musk, as well as Walt Disney DEO Robert Iger, stepped down from the advisory panel earlier this month after Trump's controversial decision to withdraw the U.S. from the Paris climate agreement.
The council meeting will include nearly 20 other chief executives from the tech industry. White House senior adviser and Trump's son-in-law Jared Kushner will also be in attendance. He was tasked with leading the White House Office of American Innovation in March -- a new effort to potentially privatize some government functions, reports Reuters.

Monday's meeting will include Apple CEO Tim Cook, Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos, Alphabet Inc Executive Chairman Eric Schmidt and Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella, among others.
Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerburg was invited to the White House gathering but declined, citing a conflict.
The American Technology Council was created to help modernize the U.S. government, cut government waste and improve IT services.
