For the Jobs: Trump Meets with Business and Labor Leaders

After the eight years of the Obama economy where businesses had either closed their doors or left the country, instead of inviting rap artists, movie stars, and community organizers disruptors to the White House where nothing meaningful was accomplished to improved the lives of the American people, President Donald Trump has invited in those who are the boss to meet their new boss.

While President Barack Obama associated in the White House with the likes of Common, Beyoncé, Jay Z and Al Sharpton, President Trump invited and met with:

Elon Musk — CEO and CTO of SpaceX, CEO of Tesla Motors, chairman of Solar City, co-chairman of OpenAI
Mark Fields — President and CEO of Ford Motor Company
Marillyn Hewson — Chairwoman, president and CEO of Lockheed Martin
Andrew Liveris — Chairman, president and CEO of Dow Chemical
Kevin Plank — Founder, chairman and CEO of Under Armour
Michael Dell — Founder, chairman and CEO of Dell Technologies
Mario Longhi — CEO of US Steel
Jeff Fettig — Chairman and CEO of Whirlpool
Alex Gorsky — CEO of Johnson & Johnson
Klaus Kleinfeld — Chairman and CEO of Arconic
Wendell Weeks — Chairman and CEO of Corning
Mark Sutton — Chairman and CEO of International Paper
Sean McGarvey — President of North America’s Building Trades Unions
Terry O’Sullivan — General president of the Laborers’ International Union of North America
Joseph Sellers — President of the SMART Sheet Metal Workers’ Union
Doug McCarron — President of the United Brotherhood of Carpenters
Mark McManus — President of United Association
Mary Barra — CEO of GM
Sergio Marchionne — CEO of Fiat Chrysler

and more who left the White House meetings beaming with optimism and with some, the unexpected appreciation of being respected.

One can only imagine what must be going through the mind of the former president as Trump is showing the nation just what a little effort (and real world knowledge) could have done to put millions of Americans to work.
