Trump Meets With “Puppet Master” David Koch

The Washington Post reports:

President-elect Donald Trump had a private exchange Wednesday night with billionaire industrialist David Koch, with whom he clashed during the 2016 presidential race and whose conservative policy objectives have often diverged from Trump’s agenda.

The huddle at Trump’s Mar-a-Lago club in Palm Beach, Fla., was witnessed by several people and orchestrated by Trump’s friend, Newsmax chief executive Christopher Ruddy, according to two Trump associates familiar with the conversation. They spoke on the condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to discuss it publicly.

The impromptu meeting represents the latest example of a longtime Trump adversary conferring with the president-elect at his winter retreat. Over the weekend, Mexican billionaire Carlos Slim met with Trump for dinner at Mar-a-Lago after more than a year of acrimony.
