When Will the President Meet With Consumer Advocates?

Here is Politico's answer:

SHOULD TRUMP HEAR FROM CONSUMER GROUPS? – St. John's University law school's Jeff Sovern emails: "You reported today that the president 'will participate in a listening session with the Retail Industry Leaders Association and member company CEOs.' You have reported a number of sessions in which the president met with CEOs. When will he hold a listening session with consumer advocates? The people who help the ordinary Americans the president pledged to work for during the campaign."

MM's answer is probably never. But it's not a bad idea. Trump's populism appealed to a lot of people who feel as screwed by big business and Wall Street as they do by Washington. Buffing up the "I'm with you" credentials by hearing from people other than CEOs is probably a good idea.
