The CEOs of General Motors Co (GM.N), Ford Motor Co (F.N) and Fiat Chrysler Automobiles NV (FCHA.MI) (FCAU.N) will meet with the president in Ypsilanti Township, Michigan, along with officials from Japanese and German automakers, including Toyota Motor Corp (7203.T).
Trump won Michigan's 16 electoral votes in November, turning the state Republican red for the first time since 1988. This will be his first visit to the state as President.
