Trump’s New Manufacturing Jobs Initiative Enlists DREAM TEAM of Corporate CEOs

In his first week in office, Donald Trump has been busy. He reinstated the Mexico City policy, narrowed down his list of Supreme Court nominations, did considerable damage to ISIS and met with union and business leaders to work on the economy. And Friday morning, he added something else: starting a manufacturing jobs initiative.
