A new poll of nearly 900 chief financial officers around the world reveals 67 percent want President Donald Trump to break his habit of off-the-cuff tweeting.

The survey, conducted by the Duke University/CFO Global Business Outlook, says the CFOs agree Trump should stick to prepared remarks made in public.

"CFOs are very clear," said John Graham, a finance professor at Duke's Fuqua School of Business and director of the survey.

"They don't like the fluctuations and uncertainty that result from how President Trump communicates to the public, but they say many of his ideas will be good for business, even some of the more controversial ones."

The survey asked CFOs what advice they would give Trump for the good of the business community:

  • 67 percent said the president should stop using Twitter.
  • 70 percent said he should stick to prepared remarks during speeches.
  • 85 percent oppose reducing H1-B visas for highly skilled workers.
  • 64 percent are against building a wall along the Mexican border.
  • 68 percent favor retaining the current leadership at the Federal Reserve Bank.
  • 58 percent support the president's plan to restrict immigration from specific countries.

The survey included responses from 394 CFOs from North America, 109 from Asia, 185 from Europe, 154 from Latin America and 53 from Africa.
