Trump, AT&T CEO discussed jobs, not Time Warner deal: Trump spokesman

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - U.S. President-elect Donald Trump’s meeting with AT&T Inc’s (T.N) chief executive this week focused on job creation and government regulations, not the company’s planned merger with Time Warner Inc (TWX.N), Trump spokesman Sean Spicer told reporters on Friday.
