This morning Trump met with CEOs he called: "the biggest and the best minds, in the country." A few of the main takeaways, per White House pool report:

  • Trump is "very happy" with this morning's job's report, his first as POTUS.
  • Promised that there will be "tax bill very soon, a healthcare bill even sooner."
  • On the auto industry: "They're pouring back into the country already."
  • "We have some of the bankers here. There's nobody better to tell me about Dodd Frank than Jamie, so you're going to tell me about it," POTUS said, referring to Jamie Dimon, the JPMorgan Chase CEO;
We expect to be cutting a lot out of Dodd Frank, because frankly I have so many people, friends of mine, that have nice businesses and they can't borrow money ... they just can't get any money because the banks just won't let them borrow because of the rules and regulations in Dodd Frank. So we'll be talking about that in terms of the banking industry.
