Co-founder of Home Depot and Republican billionaire, Ken Langone, believes President Trump has the potential to become “one of our greatest presidents ever.”
In a CNBC interview Monday, Langone stated that Trump as a political outsider is the reason America has the chance to thrive. He also noted it helps Trump that the GOP now control both the House and the Senate.
“This guy has got guts… and he’s got the best people around him,” Langone said.
“What about the tweets?” he was asked. “This is fun, come on he’s giving us something to get excited about! Let’s not blow it!” he answered.
“Voters are fed up,” Langone said. “They did a very dramatic, earth-shattering thing [by voting Trump]. We own the next 25 years as a nation [if we act].”
Langone then addressed House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy, who was also a featured guest on Squawk Box:
“If you guys don’t get your guys into a room and say ‘Guys this is our moment.’ The American people will throw you out too, the next time. [Trump] has the capacity to go down as one of our greatest presidents ever. The American people elected him president, in my mind, for one reason: they don’t want incremental change. They want major change.”
