“CEOs Abandon Trump”


Tom Donohue — CEO of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, and longtime confidant of Republican presidents — tells Axios that Joe Biden is president-elect, and President Trump “should not delay the transition a moment longer.”…

Business leaders are speaking with one voice:

  • National Association of Manufacturers president and CEO Jay Timmons, and other NAM leaders, said the GSA should sign the letter opening transition resources to Biden: “Further, we call on the Trump administration to work cooperatively with President-elect Biden and his team.”
  • JPMorgan Chase chairman and CEO Jamie Dimon told Andrew Ross Sorkin at the N.Y. Times’ Dealbook conference: “We need a peaceful transition. We had an election. We have a new president. You should support that whether you like it or not because it’s based on a system of faith and trust.”
  • The Business Roundtable, representing top CEOs, on Nov. 7 congratulated “President-elect Biden, Vice President-elect Harris.”
