Exxon Mobil Corp said there had been no phone call between its chief executive, Darren Woods, and President Donald Trump after Trump invoked the oil giant’s name when he said he could raise more money than his Democratic rival Joe Biden.
Trump, at the rally, said he could raise large sums of money if he wanted to by calling oil and Wall Street executives.
“Don’t forget, I’m not bad at that stuff anyway, and I’m president. So I call some guy, the head of Exxon. I call the head of Exxon. I don’t know,” he said.
“We are aware of the President’s statement regarding a hypothetical call with our CEO…and just so we’re all clear, it never happened,” Exxon said on Twitter.
