Trump Announces Advisory Group Filled With CEOs

President-elect Donald Trump has assembled a group of business leaders to advise him and “bring back jobs and Make America Great Again,” according to ABC News. The Trump White House transition team released a statement announcing the President’s Strategic and Policy Forum, led by Blackstone co-founder Stephen Schwarzman.

“The Forum,” as it’s called, includes JPMorgan Chase CEO Jamie Dimon, Wal-Mart Stores CEO Doug McMillon, General Motors CEO Mary Barra, BlackRock CEO Larry Fink and Walt Disney Company CEO Bob Iger.

According to Reuters, Trump called Schwarzman earlier this week and requested he lead the council, despite not being friends or having done business before. The two drafted a list of CEOs to approach, which Schwarzman did individually.

The group’s 16 members also includes former CEOs Jack Welch of General Electric, Jim McNerney of Boeing, and former Securities and Exchange Commission head Paul Atkins.

“This forum brings together CEOs and business leaders who know what it takes to create jobs and drive economic growth,” Trump said in the statement.

“My administration is committed to drawing on private sector expertise and cutting the government red tape that is holding back our businesses from hiring, innovating, and expanding right here in America,” he added.
