CNN’s Political Director on Trump: ‘The Business Community Could Not Be More Enthusiastic’


CNN Political Director David Chalian said Friday morning that the business community "couldn't be more enthusiastic" about President Trump.

"The business community could not be more enthusiastic right now about Donald Trump. That is great for him out of the gate," Chalian said, arguing that jobs and the economy have been the high points of Trump's presidency so far.

"Obviously the market is responding thusly," Chalian added. "He's highlighted individual companies where he is able to make some job deals, so this has been a big positive for him."

Trump's nomination of Judge Neil Gorsuch to the Supreme Court and his address to a joint session of Congress last week rounded out the "high marks" of his first 50 days, Chalian said.

In the president's first full month in office, the economy added 235,000 jobs, dropping the unemployment rate to 4.7 percent, according to the Associated Press.
