The business predicts Donald Trump saw on the campaign trail facilitated him been elected, but his actions since then have made him an uncertain figure
As we approach 100 daytimes in, business still doesnt know quite what to reach of Donald Trump.
On the campaign trail he excoriated Wall st. and pledged to drain the bog of lobbyists. In part he has stuffed his cabinet full of gilded bankers and conceal the White House guest notebook so we will never catch out who has his ear.
All these concepts should be pro-business. Business likes to follow the path of least resistance, says Peter Henning, constitution professor and regulatory expert at Wayne State. He campaigned as a populist president but Id say that so far the banks sure like him.
But even more than excise gashes and deregulation, business likes certainty and here Trumps first 100 eras show business is out of luck. Trump is also arguably the USs most protectionist chairwoman since Herbert Hoover, a view that may have got him elected but that transmits the world nobility of Davos into the horrors.
Nor has the president been shy to mention and dishonor the businesses that offend him. Trump has employed the bully pulpit( mostly via his Twitter account) to lambast firms including GM and Ford for their plans to produce overseas. He erased$ 1bn, temporarily, off Boeings value after threatening to cancel its contract to build the brand-new U. s. air force One 747.
