The Twitter-happy president-elect has changed the policy game, but he now faces the challenge of implementing his plans, Nasdaq's new CEO told CNBC on Tuesday.
"I would say that he is creating a new age of politics and now it's a matter of putting those politics into action," Adena Friedman told "Squawk Box." "2017 is a real 'show me' story in terms of all the policies that he's been proclaiming."
And for business owners who are targeted by Donald Trump for the way their companies operate, Friedman had a few diplomatic words of advice.
"I think you're supposed to continue to execute on your business strategy and then have an open dialogue with the administration as appropriate," she said.
