Do businesspeople support Trump? There are many businesspeople and we don't know how many of them support Trump. We do know that of the CEOs and owners of the largest companies on Wall Street, Silicon Valley and so forth support for Trump was very thin. Trump does not appear to have been a very good businessman, and is among other things a racist, misogynist and xenophobe. Successful businesspeople try not to be those things: they are bad for business after all.
