“President-elect Donald Trump met with Apple board member and former Vice President Al Gore at Trump Tower on Monday,” Antonio José Vielma reports for CNBC.

“As he was leaving Trump Tower, Gore told reporters he had a lengthy and very productive session with the president-elect, and mentioned he also had an earlier meeting with Trump’s daughter Ivanka,” Vielma reports. “‘It was a sincere search for areas of common ground,’ he said. ‘I found it an extremely interesting conversation, and to be continued, and I’m just going to leave it at that.'”
