U.S. President Donald Trump met with about two dozen chief executives of major U.S. companies at the White House on Thursday and told them he plans to bring many millions of jobs back to the United States. Participants included CEOs from General Electric, Lockheed Martin, and Dow Chemical. They also discussed issues like conflict minerals and export regulations, vocational training, and business taxes. Trump is expected to roll out a series of proposals that could impact companies, including a plan to overhaul the tax code and an infrastructure package. Wayne Kaufman of Phoenix Financial Services: (SOUNDBITE) WAYNE KAUFMAN, CHIEF MARKET ANALYST, PHOENIX FINANCIAL SERVICES, (ENGLISH) SAYING: "People are gearing up for what could be a tremendous economy in the United States, and, hopefully, globally, over the next few years. They're not just looking a few months or couple of quarters out. You've got a pro-growth president. That's his brand. And no matter what happens, he's gonna try to make this economy grow." During the meeting with the CEOs, Trump also touched on his plan to deport illegal immigrants to Mexico. His remark came just as U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson landed in Mexico, starting, what Trump called, a "tough trip."
