Uber CEO Travis Kalanick and Pepsi CEO Indra Nooyi will also join the President’s Strategic and Policy Forum.
Musk's entire business model for his electric car depends on government subsidies ( read money taken from you and me and given to Musk's company). That gives Trump enormous leverage over him. Musk is young, savvy and an innovation leader, but I heard that initially he wasn't going to attend this meeting because he was "busy." I see he changed his mind at the last minute. Did I hear someone say, "Dance, puppet, if you'd like to keep that sweet, sweet government money coming?" Nevertheless, Musk is a good man to have on the team, as opposed to off of it.
The Uber man is another interesting choice. I see his inclusion as a shot across the bow of Progressive, anti capitalist cities who are trying to keep Uber out to protect the old tech taxi companies who pay in big bucks to maintain their ability to keep out most competitors. Uber is also a paradigm changing technology that is upending the business of getting people from here to there. That's cutting edge stuff is exactly the kind of thing Trump should be promoting. Double good there.
I got no idea why the Pepsi CEO is any advantage.
Anyway, again, a very positive development from a person we now know to be an agent of change. Tornado warning for the establishment! Change is coming! Get in the storm cellar or face the whirlwind.
