Trump Panel Of Advisers On Job Creation Includes Jamie Dimon, GM CEO

Manuel Balce Ceneta

President-elect Donald Trump announced on Friday the formation of a President’s Strategic and Policy Forum to advise him on job creation and the economy.

According to the release, the forum "will be called upon to meet with the President frequently to share their specific experience and knowledge" and is expected to hold its first meeting at the White House in February, after Trump takes office.

The list of members announced so far includes Mary Barra, CEO and chairman of General Motors, Ginni Rometty, CEO of IBM, and Jamie Dimon, CEO and chairman of JPMorgan Chase.

After reports in November that Trump was considering nominating Dimon as secretary of the treasury, Fortune reported that Dimon had declined the position. NBC News' Hallie Jackson then reported that Dimon was "never under consideration" for the job anyway, according to a top transition source, and that Trump "doesn't respect" the executive.
