President Donald Trump and his National Economic Council met with representatives of small community banks. Also in the room was Gary Cohn, director of the National Economic Council, and Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin. Sitting between Trump and Cohn was Dorothy Savarese of Cape Cod Five Mutual Co.

Trump highlighted his executive order of last month scaling back some banking regulations, saying it will help enable the small banks to make loans to small businesses and "be able to provide the jobs that we want."

Cohn came in first, shaking hands with all of the bank executives. When Trump came in, the executives went around the table introducing themselves.

We've been promised a full list of the attendees.
