Donald Trump Adds Tesla Motors’ Elon Musk To His Adviser Team!

Donald Trump added Tesla Motors’ CEO Elon Musk to his team of expert advisers. Which other leading CEOs made the cut for the new president’s business advisory group?

The president-elect’s business advisory group already includes Jaime Dimon of J.P. Morgan, Bob Iger of Disney, and Mary Barra of General Motors. The team will advise Trump on business matters as he forms his economic plans.

Donald Trump gave a press release this morning to announce his new advisers.

“America has the most innovative and vibrant companies in the world, and the pioneering CEOs joining this Forum today are at the top of their fields.

My administration is going to work together with the private sector to improve the business climate and make it attractive for firms to create new jobs across the United States from Silicon Valley to the heartland.”

Elon Musk

Surprisingly enough, all three of Trump’s new business advisory picks have previously spoken out against the president-elect or have been falsely accused of attacking him.

Back in November, Tesla Motors’ Elon Musk told CNBC that Donald Trump was “not the right guy” for the White House.

He said: “He doesn’t seem to have the sort of character that reflects well on the United States.”

Beside everything said by Elon Musk, he will be the First Adviser of the next president of United States.

Travis Kalanick

Last October, Travis Kalanick the CEO of Uber said that he would “move to China if Donald Trump wins” to an audience of college students.

What changed these top executives minds?

Donald Trump’s presidency could be beneficial for Uber, so maybe that is why Kalanick had a change of heart after the election, so he is the second adviser for Trump

Both Musk and Kalanick hail from Silicon Valley, where top leaders had show support for Democratic opponent Hillary Clinton during this year’s presidential election.

Indra Nooyi

Indra Nooyi of PepsiCo fell victim to false reports claiming that she had made incendiary, anti-Trump comments, which led to a massive online boycott of Pepsi products. Nooyi never publicly backed either candidate during the election.

Indra Nooyi is Donald Trump’s third female pick for his team of advisers. She joins Barra and IBM CEO Ginni Rometty.

The group of advisers will be chaired by Stephen A. Schwarzman, CEO of the private equity firm Blackstone.

On Wednesday, Donald Trump and tech leaders attempted to mend their tense relationship in a summit held at Trump Tower in New York.

Attendees included Elon Musk, Ginni Rometty, Alphabet CEO Larry Page and Chairman Eric Schmidt, Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos, Facebook Chief Operating Officer Sheryl Sandberg, Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella, Intel CEO Brian Krzanich, Oracle co-CEO Safra Catz, and Cisco CEO Chuck Robbins.
