From the beginning, presidents have sought to build and maintain relationships with the business world.
And even today, President Barack Obama has made his office a popular place for business meetings.
The White House has hosted more than 3,000 meetings, according to a recent report from the Government Accountability Office.
There are more than 200,000 events each year in the West Wing, including events with a $1 million budget.
The President and first lady Michelle Obama have also hosted the White Space Society’s annual Global Entrepreneurship Forum.
In the past few months, there has been a push by President Trump and other members of his administration to focus on economic development, particularly by expanding jobs and economic growth through infrastructure projects.
Trump has also proposed a tax-cut plan that would cut corporate taxes by nearly half.
The president also has a history of making deals with business leaders.
During his first year in office, the president hosted a series of business-focused events.
His team also hosted events with more than 20,000 people.
