Pepperdine Graziadio Executive Professor of Organizational Theory and Management and Academic Director of the MS in Organization Development Gary L. Mangiofico, PhD, is quoted in a USA Today article, written by Roger Yu and Adam Shell. The article posits that, "Trump's fractured ties to businesses could hurt policy-making."
This refers to inflammatory campaign rhetoric and an appeal to fringe racist groups that have repelled some corporate leaders. In addition, the appearance or perception of White House incompetency can hinder willingness for industry leaders to associate with the president. "Lobbying will be less directed at Trump and more at other politicians and legislators that can support business-friendly policies," says Dr. Mangiofico in the article.
