Poll: CEOs give Trump a failing grade

Half of CEOs and business executives would give President Trump an “F” for his presidency so far, a new poll finds.

Another 21 percent of the leaders surveyed at the Yale CEO summit would give Trump’s performance a “D,” and just one percent would give the president an “A,” according to CNN Money.

{mosads}Jeffrey Sonnenfeld, the Yale School of Management professor who led the summit, said the overarching message from CEOs is that Trump has to “stop random 3 a.m. tweets” and “the needless brushfires diverting from the agenda.” 

Sonnenfeld noted 80 percent of the leaders surveyed are CEOs, including Blackstone CEO Steve Schwarzman and IBM’s Ginni Rometty, who are both on Trump’s advisory council. 

“This was not a granola-eating crowd of Democrat entrepreneurs. It’s a cross-section of the business community, including some who are quite pro-Trump,” he said.
