The gatherings, in which Zuckerberg also met with school and business leaders, took place in two Texas cities on January 18 as part of the billionaire's "Year of Travel", in which he will visit states he has not been to before, Baptist News Global reported.

'The right path is to sit down and discuss how to best move forward.

"I'm focused on building our community at Facebook and working on the Chan Zuckerberg Initiative", he said on Tuesday.

Last week, Zuckerberg insisted that "For most of these folks, they will now receive money for something they never even knew they had. We will continue to speak with community leaders that represent different groups, including native Hawaiians and environmentalists, to find the best path", he wrote in the open letter.
