Tesla CEO Elon Musk and other figures from American industry met with the Trump Administration today, hoping to speak with the new President about the future of manufacturing in the United States.
However, Elon Musk offers a uniquely appealing avatar for Trump strategists, since not only does he embody the spirit of American industriousness (and not only is he a much-needed immigrant in the Trump White House), he’s also got another major source of appeal: SpaceX.
The Trump team has expressed interest in Musk’s eagerness to go to Mars.
Tesla’s manufacturing scheme also includes a pivot towards making American products in America, and has created several hundred jobs at its Gigafactory in Nevada.
Early in the meeting, Trump announced he would “cut regulation by 75 percent” for business — though it was not immediately clear whether that number was expressed in terms of the number of individual regulations, or monetary impact.

Elon Musk says he’ll start digging a tunnel from SpaceX HQ next month
LAX is an airport he likely frequents with dizzying regularity, given his commitments at SpaceX, Tesla and SolarCity.
Musk’s tunnel plans, then, seem possibly aimed at reducing his travel time between SpaceX and LAX, at least initially.
But he has insisted the tunnel plans were serious previously, and so far, nothing to indicate he’s just joking has emerged.
The SpaceX and Tesla CEO shared more details about the project when pressed by fans, specifying that he could actually plan to start digging essentially from near his office at SpaceX.
Elon Musk said he’s making “progress” on his tunnel ambitions on Twitter on Wednesday, a project he first mentioned after being stuck in traffic in LA in December.
