Specifically, President Trump can be quoted saying the following before the meeting commenced:
We’re bringing manufacturing back to the United States—bigly—we’re reducing taxes very substantially and we’re reducing unnecessary regulations. We want regulations but we want real regulations that mean something.
The president will hear from each CEO and take into account their thoughts from the private sector on how to make the U.S. a friendlier place to invest in, specifically in regards to automotive manufacturing.
