Why Are Company Bosses Afraid of Donald Trump?

Almost everyone who has perused the Internet knows that the CEO of PepsiCo Indra Nooyi has bad-mouthed President-elect Donald Trump. She has an imaginary fear of Trump. Her fears may come from a lack of analysis or her left leaning views. Who knows? However, she is not alone. Other company CEOs and founders share her questionable beliefs. Listed below are a few of her associates and reasons why they feel annoyed by Trump:

Amazon founder Jeff Bezos

Donald Trump once said, "Amazon is getting away with murder, tax-wise. He's using the Washington Post for power so that the politicians in Washington don't tax Amazon like they should be taxed.”

Ford CEO Mark Fields

Concerning Ford’s move to build a factory in Mexico, Trump said, "What does that do? We don't get anything. Does Mexico come here and build factories here? We lose a fortune with every deal."

Apple CEO Tim Cook

Trump warned Cook, "We're going to get Apple to build their damn computers and things in this country instead of other countries."

Lockheed Martin CEO Marillyn Hewson

Regarding the defense contractor's F-35 fighter jet contract, Trump said "When they say that this (F-35) cannot perform as well as the planes we already have, what are [we] doing, and spending so much more money?"

New York Times Chairman and Publisher Arthur Sulzberger

Trump has promised he would consider allowing libel laws against the media so that he and other people who felt they were unjustifiably persecuted by the press could sue news organizations. Trump said, "So when The New York Times writes a hit piece which is a total disgrace or when The Washington Post, which is there for other reasons, writes a hit piece, we can sue them and win money instead of having no chance of winning because they're totally protected.”
