New Fiat Chrysler CEO Mike Manley among execs meeting with Trump in New Jersey

Fiat Chrysler CEO Mike Manley is among executives across various industries invited to meet with President Donald Trump at his golf resort in Bedminster, N.J.

President Donald Trump will meet Tuesday with leaders from more than a dozen major companies, including Fiat Chrysler Automobiles’ new CEO Mike Manley and PepsiCo Inc.’s departing chief Indra Nooyi, as he shapes his economic message heading into midterm elections.

The executives are traveling to Trump’s golf resort in Bedminster, N.J., where he’s in the middle of what the White House calls a working vacation. The president will be joined by aides including his daughter Ivanka Trump and son-in-law Jared Kushner; Larry Kudlow, his top economic adviser; and deputy chief of staff for policy coordination Chris Liddell.

According to a list obtained by Bloomberg News, Trump’s guests also include:

Johnson & Johnson CEO Alex Gorsky, Continental Resources Inc. CEO Harold Hamm, FedEx Corp. CEO Fred Smith, Boeing Co. CEO Dennis Muilenburg, Honeywell International Inc. CEO Darius Adamczyk, Boston Beer Co. Inc. Chairman Jim Koch, Ernst & Young CEO Mark Weinberger, Mastercard Inc. CEO Ajay Banga, International Paper Co. CEO and Mark Sutton Red Apple Group CEO John Catsimatidis.

Richard LeFrak, a real estate tycoon who is an informal adviser to Trump, will also participate.

Trump enjoys business leaders’ support for the tax law he signed last year and a deregulation agenda — policies his administration contends are fueling economic growth and low unemployment. But some CEOs have criticized his immigration policies and, especially, his trade war with China and U.S. allies.

His administration recently asked corporations to sign pledges to help train or retrain American workers for 21st century jobs.
