Trump & Business

February 16, 2017

Donald Trump often touts his credentials as a successful businessman, who knows how to get things done. Since being sworn in, he's hosted leaders of the automotive industry, signed an executive order to revive controversial pipelines, and said he wants to make it easier for corporate America to get its work done. Wall Street seems to like what it's hearing. The stock market has been soaring, which prompted Trump to tweet, “Stock market hits new high with longest winning streak in decades. Great level of confidence and optimism -- even before tax plan rollout.” President and CEO of cloud-back up company Carbonite, Mohamad Ali (@mhsali), and Gautam Mukunda (@gmukunda), an assistant professor at Harvard Business School join Jim to talk about the businessman president’s impact on business.
