General Motors has confirmed CEO and Chairman Mary Barra will be in attendance for President-elect Donald Trump’s inauguration, according to The Detroit News.
The automaker declined to provide specifics as to whether she was personally invited by Trump or if she would merely be in attendance.
Barra will also be a part of Trump’s Strategic and Policy Forum, where she will advise the president on economic and policy issues. Barra will be joined by numerous other CEOs and executives, including Tesla Motors CEO Elon Musk and Uber CEO Travis Kalanick. The group will meet for the first time this coming February at the White House.
GM has also come under scrutiny from Trump for its Mexico production plans involving the 2017 Chevrolet Cruze hatchback. Trump called out the automaker over Twitter to threaten a “big border tax” for bringing the vehicle back into the U.S. after production. Barra stated production would not move from Mexico to the United States following the criticism.
Trump will be sworn into office this Friday, January 20, 2017.
