SEATTLE (Reuters) - General Electric Co's (NYSE: GE) chief executive said on Wednesday the company will work with president-elect Donald Trump and the new Congress, but drew distinctions between the company's values and some of Trump's divisive campaign rhetoric.
In a message to employees seen by Reuters, Chief Executive Officer Jeff Immelt said the maker of power plants, aircraft engines and other large equipment remains committed to diversity and a global trading system. "We support people of all races, genders and sexual orientations," he said. "We believe in the importance of globalization and investment."
