Jared Kushner speaks at tech event

20 June 2017, 05:15 | Megan Pierce

"To date, we've been working with hundreds of talented civil servants, men and women, who want to serve their country and see their government do better", Kushner said.

Kushner sounded like a teenage boy who is in way over his head while addressing a technology summit at the White House. White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer said that their political differences wouldn't hinder their working together.

Kushner has been tasked with overseeing a number of initiatives in the Trump administration, including: brokering peace in the Middle East, revamping the federal government, tackling the opioid epidemic, and heading the Office of American Innovation.

He said the administration was scrapping unneeded regulations for government computing systems, such as a rule on preventing Y2K issues. He said there was "a lot of room for optimization in the federal government".

The White House continues to downplay any tension between the administration and tech giants, especially after many of them, including Eric Schmidt, the executive chairman of Alphabet, backed Hillary Clinton during the 2016 presidential election. Facebook (FB.O) CEO Mark Zuckerberg was invited but could not attend because of a conflict, the company said.

Germany's Merkel vows not to give up on USA free trade deal

"Many of our federal systems are decades old, with our ten oldest being between 39 and 56 years old", he continued.

Kushner said his efforts are not being stymied by bureaucracy. Cook plans to raise immigration, a person briefed on the matter said Sunday. The team will also discuss government and private sector partnerships and H1-B Visas.

The White House thinks it can learn from credit card companies about significantly reducing fraud.

Several tech firm executives disagreed with the President's decision to withdraw the USA from the Paris Agreement on climate change, including Tesla and SpaceX founder Elon Musk who resigned from White House advisory councils. White House officials said the dispute had little impact and that they had to turn away tech leaders from Monday's event because of lack of space.
