Mar 8, 2016  •  Post A Comment

The main topic at a secretive meeting of billionaires, tech CEOs and top members of the GOP establishment, gathered this weekend on a private island resort near the Georgia coast, was how to stop the presidential bid of Donald Trump, The Huffington Post reports.

Among those in attendance at the American Enterprise Institute’s annual World Forum, which was off-limits to the press, were Apple CEO Tim Cook, Google co-founder Larry Page, Napster creator and Facebook investor Sean Parker, and Tesla Motors and SpaceX honcho Elon Musk, along with Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, GOP strategist Karl Rove, House Speaker Paul Ryan and other top GOP lawmakers.

“A highlight of the gathering was a presentation by Rove about focus group findings on Trump,” the story reports. “The business mogul’s greatest weakness, according to Rove, was that voters have a very hard time envisioning him as ‘presidential’ and as somebody their children should look up to. They also see him as somebody who can be erratic and shouldn’t have his (small) fingers anywhere near a nuclear trigger.”
