Mondelēz CEO Rosenfeld still thinks Trump could be good for US companies


Mondelēz International CEO Irene Rosenfeld talks about her views on President Trump and how she’s still hopeful. Following is a transcript of the video.

Sara Silverstein: And can you talk a little bit about President Trump and his role in the economy – if he is good for business, bad for business?

Irene Rosenfeld: I think it’s a little early to tell. I’m hopeful that he will — if he fulfils some of his campaign promises, it will be good for businesses — without a doubt, tax reforms is something that would be of great interest to us as a multinational company. At the same time, free trade is something that’s very important to us and it would appear that the administration is slightly going in a different direction there so I think it’s a little too early to tell. We will have to watch and see how the rhetoric and the action come together.
