‘President-elect Donald Trump announced Wednesday that he is nominating investor and former banker Wilbur Ross as his commerce secretary.
“Wilbur Ross is a champion of American manufacturing and knows how to help companies succeed. Most importantly, he is one of the greatest negotiators I have ever met, and that comes from me, the author of The Art of the Deal. Together, we will take on the special interests and stand up for American jobs,” said the president-elect in a statement released by his transition team.
Ross said he was “delighted” to join the incoming administration, and said he looks forward to “working especially closely with Steve Mnuchin to implement the economic programs which we have developed jointly to implement the President-elect’s strategy for accelerating our economic growth.”’
