Trump ran as an ally to business — but snubbed America’s CEOs by pulling out of the Paris accord

The Washington Post

President Trump campaigned as the real estate executive who was going to bring a businessman’s sensibilities to Washington. During the transition, he rolled out the welcome mat at Trump Tower, inviting a parade of CEOs from every industry imaginable. He stocked his Cabinet with business leaders, suggested to Silicon Valley chieftains there was an open line to his office — “You’ll call my people, you call me. It doesn’t make any difference” — and spent his first full weekday in the White House hosting a who’s-who of American industry, promising to meet often about what could help their industries. “We’ll have these meetings every — whenever you need them, actually — but I would say every quarter, perhaps,” he said during that early meeting.
