CEO Summit Survey: Business Leaders Split Over Trump Impeachment 

At the Chief Executive Leadership Institute’s 100th CEO Summit this week, 56% of participants said that they supported impeaching and removing President Donald Trump from office, and a large majority said that the preliminary trade deal with China was inadequate.

The participants, who included government officials and academics as well as business leaders, participated in an unscientific survey led by Jeffrey Sonnenfeld, senior associate dean for leadership studies and Lester Crown Professor in the Practice of Management at Yale SOM.

Asked if the “phase one” trade deal that Trump reached with China this month adequately addresses the major issues between the two countries, 96% said no.
