Full interview with AT&T CEO Randall Stephenson on Trump's agenda, Time Warner deal

AT&T Chairman and CEO Randall Stephenson shared his views on the company's proposed Time Warner takeover and Donald Trump's agenda in an exclusive interview Tuesday on CNBC's "Squawk Box. "

On Trump's tax plans: "If you get this kind of tax reform, it would have significant implications to capital investment for a company like ours," Stephenson said. "Yeah, we would probably step our capital investment up."

On the Time Warner deal: "I feel very confident the deal gets done," he said. "This is a vertical merger. The competitive environment in telecommunications does not change after this closes. The competitive environment in the media entertainment business does not change."

AT&T proposed a $107.50 a share takeover offer for Time Warner in Oct. 2016. The deal is facing heightened regulatory scrutiny.

In the interview at the World Economic Forum at Davos, Switzerland, he also discussed:

  • Cable bundle
  • Deregulation
  • Mexico
  • Trade policy
  • Next generation wireless investment
