US CEOs Reach Out to Trump: We Can't Prosper in Nation 'Divided and Distrustful' (Newsmax)


Chief executive officers from more than 1,100 US companies, including Boeing, Coca-Cola and Caterpillar, reportedly have written an open letter to President-elect Donald Trump, warning of “an urgent need to restore faith in our vital economic and government institutions” after the election.

While global business executives fear threats to trade in the wake of Trump’s victory, others see opportunities in possible tax cuts and deregulation.

In the chief executives’ letter, prepared for whichever candidate won the presidential election, they say they are committed to reuniting the country “after this particularly difficult election,” and warn that businesses and communities cannot prosper “in a country that is divided and distrustful,” the Financial Times reported.

Other CEOs who signed the letter, organized by the National Association of Manufacturers, include the chief executives of Pfizer, Honeywell, Lockheed Martin, Eli Lilly and Cargill.
