Donald Trump has said all along that he will be looking to high achievers from a variety of industries, and with a variety of credentials, to help him in his mission to “make America great again.”
High on Trump’s list of priorities is a reinvigoration of the U.S. economy in a way that has not been evident for decades. To that end, he has decided on assembling a “President’s Strategic and Policy Forum” whose members will “meet with the President frequently to share their specific experience and knowledge as the President implements his economic agenda.”
Particularly striking are the names on the growing list of those Trump has seen fit to name to the forum. The captains of industry most recently added to the roster include Tesla and SpaceX CEO Elon Musk, Uber CEO Travis Kalanick, and Pepsi CEO Indra Nooyi. According to The Hill, the three join 13 other members of an elite group that is expected to play a key role in advancing the new administration’s economic agenda.
In a statement touting the latest additions to his revolutionary advisory team, Trump said, “America has the most innovative and vibrant companies in the world, and the pioneering CEOs joining this Forum today are at the top of their fields.
“My Administration is going to work together with the private sector to improve the business climate and make it attractive for firms to create new jobs across the United States from Silicon Valley to the heartland.”
