Ken Langone is one of the co-founder’s of the Home Depot and he has long been a strident support of President Donald Trump. He recently appeared on CNBC to talk about Trump and explain why it was that he was so supportive of the President.
Langone also explained how it was that Trump was able to overcome so much opposition and defeat the Bushes, the Clintons, Obama, and the media. He argued that it was all because the American people are desperate for change, not incremental change, but a total overhaul of the system.
Langone also had a warning for the GOP, from CNBC:
Langone warned the Republicans that they could lose their majorities in the House and the Senate if lawmakers fail to seize this Trump-created opportunity. “We own the next 25 years as a nation [if we act].”
“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,” he warned House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy who also appeared as a guest Monday on “Squawk Box.”
“[Trump] has the capacity to go down as one of our greatest presidents ever” if he’s able to bring about big changes in health care, tax cuts and $1 trillion of infrastructure upgrades, Langone said.
“The American people elected him president, in my mind, for one reason: they don’t want incremental change. They want major change,” said Langone, founder and CEO of investment bank Invemed Associates, specializing in health-care and high-technology companies.
