NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- President-elect Donald Trump has two big tasks in front of him, Verizon (VZ) owned AOL cofounder Steve Case said on CNBC's "Squawk Alley" on Monday morning.

First, he needs to unite the people of the U.S. by working in a more bi-partisan way in Washington D.C., Case said. "We need to really move forward in a bipartisan way to make sure we remain the most innovative entrepreneurial nation."

Second, Trump needs to build a bridge between Silicon Valley and the rest of the country. "We need to make sure the job creation and the innovation energy of this economy is broadly dispersed," Case claimed.

During the presidential election last Tuesday, it was clear that people out West were frustrated because they were feeling "left behind" and "left out," Case explained. "They need to be part of the economy. We need to have a more inclusive economy."

In order for the U.S. to keep its place at the top of the innovative countries list, it needs to look at what's happening across the country and outside of the popular tech sector, Case said.
