President Donald Trump announced today that experts from across several industries and sectors will come together to form the Great American Economic Revival Industry Groups.

The White House shared an official statement about the groups today which includes the entire list of experts.
The statement that precedes the list of experts reads:
The experts include executives, economists, scholars, and business leaders from the agricultural, banking, construction/labor/workforce, defense, energy, financial service, food & beverage, healthcare, hospitality, manufacturing, real estate, retail, tech, telecommunications, transportation, and sports thought leader/groups industries.
The experts that form the tech group include Apple CEO Tim Cook, Google (Alphabet Inc) CEO Sundar Pichai, and Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella. Intel's Bob Swan, AMD's Lisa Su, and Qualcomm's Steven Mollenkopf are all in the tech group as well.

Look. I know they are looking for how to restart the economy, but I hope to god these CEO's know to trust the scientist and don't **** this up.
It's not the CEOs you should be worried about.
Yeah. It's the politicians who are in charge. Thankfully most of the decisions will be made by state governments, not the White House.
I know that, I just hope they don't just give into these politicians.
It is 100% the CEO's you should worry about.

Are you serious!? These CEOs do nothing but science. They make a living out of it.
It's just political cover to push the opening timeline ahead. The ultimate decision will be "made" by the president and his decidedly non-expert committee. Of course he can't force states to ignore the science and let up on the lockdown early... Unless he wants a constitutional crisis, which he might. He doesn't seem to care about the health of the public, the Constitution, the economy — he just knows there's an election in November.
Trump sure does love his stupid committees. He can put together as many committees as he wants, but he is the problem. Incompetent, corrupt buffoon without a single redeeming quality. Rotten to his core.
He likes committees, his predecessor preferred czars for everything. Not sure what's better - a group of different people or one person with almost unlimited power accountable to no one. Or maybe it doesn't matter because there should be neither
Very happy to hear there will be a group of such diverse talent across industries to assist in lending their expertise and getting our country back on its feet
... apparently most of them knew nothing about this until they saw it on TV Surprise!
I mean they could start by paying their fair share of tax, that'd probably help out a bit.
