U.S. President Donald Trump will meet with about 20 chief executives including heads of General Motors, IBM and Wal-Mart Stores as he works to gain support for a $1 trillion infrastructure program, tax reform and other administration priorities, a government official briefed on the matter said.
Trump has pledged to unlock $1 trillion in private and public infrastructure investments to fix bridges, improve the electrical grid and broadband internet, modernize airports and potentially rebuild hospitals for veterans. Nearly three months after his inauguration, Trump will again seek the advice and funds of the private sector for his "national rebuilding" program.
White House spokesman Sean Spicer confirmed the meeting and the small group sessions, but did not immediately disclose the CEOs.
Trump also wants to streamline the income tax system, cut federal regulations, reduce corporate income tax and add new taxes to prod companies to keep or move production to the United States.
