JOBS/REGULATIONS/TAXES/TRUMP AS PRESIDENT: “President Trump called two dozen corporate executives to the White House on Thursday to advise the administration on taxes, regulation and infrastructure projects, as well as on ways to strengthen the U.S. workforce.
Trump celebrated the expansion of U.S. manufacturing jobs that some companies have announced in the three months since his election and said he expects the companies represented at the White House listening session to continue expanding their domestic footprints.
‘Bringing manufacturing and creating high-wage jobs was one of our campaign themes,’ Trump said. ‘Everything is going to be based on bringing our jobs back.’ “
