According to a report from Breitbart News, Home Depot billionaire Bernie Marcus says he’s backing Donald Trump for president —even if Trump is convicted.
Marcus told Reuters he would continue to support Trump because the charges are “all trumped up.” The Home Depot billionaire says Trump is a “fixer” and would be great for the U.S. economy and foreign policy decisions when it comes to the Middle East.
Marcus endorsed Trump earlier this month.
“I understand the frustration of some of my Republican friends who do not like or are offended by things Donald Trump does and says,” he said. “I, too, have been frustrated at times, but we cannot let his brash style be the reason we walk away from his otherwise excellent stewardship of the United States during his first term in office.”
Part of our legacy must be passing on to future generations of Americans our founding freedoms and values, including The American Dream. We must change the current trajectory of the nation and solve the problems created in the last three years,” he added.
“Many, including myself, believe that Hamas would not have unleashed its barbarism and cruelty on Israel if Donald Trump was our president today. The reason is America’s enemies respect and, more importantly, fear Donald Trump’s judgment, strength, decisiveness, and courage.”
Trump is currently polling way ahead of his GOP rivals and has started to pull ahead of President Biden in key battleground states.
