President Trump met with U.S. tech workers and signed an executive order on hiring Americans amid the coronavirus pandemic. President Trump announced the removal of Tennessee Valley Authority’s Chair James Thompson and board member Richard Howoth and called for the removal of their CEO, Bill Johnson. This was in response to the company laying off employees and hiring H-1B visa holders. During the roundtable discussion, it was announced the company would reverse course and rehire previously laid off employees. The president also said he would not ban the TikTok app if Microsoft or another company bought it before September 15, 2020. close
