Trump to Hold ‘Listening Session’ with Airline CEOs Later This Week
The “listening session” will take place Thursday although the White House did not specify which airlines will be represented. Last week, Trump met with the CEOs of major pharmaceutical companies including Eli Lilly, Johnson & Johnson, and Merck, where he pressed them on lowering drug prices.
Last week American Airlines CEO Doug Parker said that the president’s “Foreign Terrorist Entry” executive order had created “turmoil” at many airports.
“Crews, reservations agents and airport teams have witnessed turmoil in our airports that shows how divisive this order can be,” Parker wrote in a letter to employees.
On the second day that the executive order was in place, President Trump sought to deflect blame for the chaos his executive order caused, and wrongly blamed Delta, which suffered a computer outage eight days ago.
