Elon Musk, the CEO Tesla, Travis Kalanick, the CEO Uber and Indra Nooyi the Pespsi CEO have joined the Trumps Business council.
According to a press release from Trump’s transition team, they are bringing the business people from all big companies to advise him during his presidency tenure. This move is made to help create new jobs.
The announcement came the same day as Trump’s private meeting with tech titans — including Musk — at Trump Tower.
Musk, who is already busy pulling double duty at SpaceX and Tesla, is a surprising addition to Trump’s team, given his sharp criticism of Trump days before the election.
