President-Elect Donald Trump isn’t even president yet and he’s already being given a nickname for his phenomenal efforts in trying to keep American workers’ jobs from being outsourced.
In a new piece by Forbes, the high-profile magazine dubs him the “CEO President” and says he’ll be unlike any other president in history.
Take a look:
Trump’s pressure comes at a time when carmakers are taking a close look at their future direction. For much of the 21st century, Detroit’s automakers have based their strategy on global production, sourcing parts and vehicles from plants all over the world.
There’s been almost no interference in that strategy from Washington, even when the Bush and Obama administrations combined to bail out GM and Chrysler.
But now, the CEO President has made trade a key focus, which could disrupt the companies’ way of doing business. Trump may wind up playing the same role as Reagan in directing where companies build cars and trucks, not through policy directives so much as tweets.
To be honest, many people in Detroit are scratching their heads trying to figure out why their industry is so important to Trump, where he is getting information about their plans, and how they can anticipate and respond to his comments.
Trump’s doing more than Obama has done in the last 8 years! Keep it up!
