Trump to discuss coronavirus impact with these Wall Street CEOs

Administration is considering its response to the potential economic fallout from the virus

After the U.S. stock market registered one of the worst days in history, President Trump is scheduled to meet with the CEOs of Wall Street's biggest banks at the White House Wednesday afternoon.

Trump and members of his administration say the fundamentals of the economy are strong, despite the sharp drop in equity prices, but will look to discuss the financial market fallout from the coronavirus and potential solutions.


The administration is considering its response to the potential economic fallout from the virus.

These are the business leaders set to meet with Trump:

Bank of America CEO Brian Moynihan

Moynihan has led Bank of America, the second-largest U.S. bank, since 2010. The virus outbreak could force the bank to shift energy away from its efforts to leverage the latest digital technology to grow its business.

"The idea is that these services still have a lot of room to grow, to have an impact on the company," Moynihan said on FOX Business' "Barron's Roundtable" in January.

Corbat has led Citigroup, parent of Citibank and the third-largest U.S. bank, since 2012.


Corbat's pay stayed at $24 million in 2019 as the company reported rising profits in the last quarter of the year. Citigroup's fourth-quarter 2019 profits rose by 15 percent, as the banking conglomerate benefited from a boost in trading similar to competitor JPMorgan Chase.

Scharf took over troubled Wells Fargo in October. The bank is among the nation's top lenders.


Scharf testified before Congress on Tuesday and blamed the company's alleged consumer abuses, including a fake-account scandal, on a "broken" culture and acknowledged the bank needs to do more to address its shortcomings.
