Exxon Mobil issued a clarification after President Trump claimed he could easily call on the oil company’s CEO for a large campaign donation at any time, Marketwatch reports.
Said Trump: “I call some guy, the head of Exxon. I call the head of Exxon. I don’t know. How are you doing? How’s energy coming? When are you doing the exploration? Oh, you need a couple of permits? When I call the head of Exxon I say, ‘You know, I’d love for you to send me $25 million for the campaign.’ ‘Absolutely sir.’”
Having been made aware of Trump’s comments, the company said the call “never happened.”Save to Favorites
