Disney's Bob Iger says he has one key goal in Trump's Washington

Walt Disney CEO Bob Iger on Thursday identified one of his company's goals in Donald Trump's Washington.

On a conference call after his company reported earnings, Iger said the media giant has pushed both the legislative and executive branches to lower the corporate tax rate. President-elect Trump and top congressional Republicans have supported a lower tax rate for corporations, with Trump campaigning on a 15 percent business tax rate.

Iger added that it is "too early to speculate" about how Trump's administration will affect Disney or business more broadly. However, he said that a so far "smooth" transition of power bodes well.

"That can only be good for business and for the country," Iger said.

President Barack Obama and Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton have both taken a conciliatory tone since Clinton's electoral college loss to Trump.
