Venture capitalists and IPO analysts say the tremendous amount of uncertainty around president-elect Trump and his policies could throw a wet blanket on tech startups looking to go public next year. "Risk in the marketplace does matter," says Lise Buyer, founder of Class V Group, which advises companies on public offerings. "We now have a president-elect who is a wild card as no one really knows wh...More>>

Kelly attracted Trump's ire during the first GOP primary debate in August 2015, when she asked him about his track record of misogynistic comments. Trump criticized her for months afterward, sometimes in highly personal ways, which triggered threats to her safety. "We had secu...More>>
