Tech billionaire Elon Musk quietly visited the White House in September, marking what appears to be his first meeting there since President Joe Biden took office in 2021, according to White House visitor logs. 

Musk, the CEO of Tesla and SpaceX, visited on Sept. 13, per the visitor logs. The logs say that his meeting was in the West Wing part of the White House complex and that Rohan Patel, a senior Tesla executive for public policy, was there, too. 

Musk and other tech industry executives had met earlier that day with lawmakers and reporters on Capitol Hill at a summit on artificial intelligence. His White House appointment was at 4 p.m., the logs show. 

The visit to the White House has not been previously reported. The appointment was included in a batch of visitor records made public on Dec. 30, according to the logs.
