Now, no matter how much you love (or hate) Donald Trump, he hasn’t even reached the all-important “first hundred days” mark, so it is too soon to pass judgement on his presidency.
Then again, with all the anti-Trumpers who insist on calling his presidency doomed before it’s even begun, it is only fair that we occasionally hear from the other side.
In this case, the individual praising Donald Trump is no slouch. He’s built one of America’s biggest and most successful companies, so his judgement must be pretty sound.
According to Breitbart:
Ken Langone, co-founder of Home Depot, said Monday on CNBC that he thinks President Donald Trump could go down as “one of our greatest presidents ever,” and has “guts,” and “great people around him.”
“[T]his guy has got guts,” Langone said on “Squawk Box.” “And he’s got great people around him.”
What’s fascinating is how many CEOs like Langone have expressed enthusiasm for Donald Trump and his policies, whereas a lot of his detractors are, to put it mildly, less than successful.
Being in Langone’s position gives him a perspective that your average garden variety lefty on Twitter definitely doesn’t share. And after 2016’s debacle of the Home Depot employee who wore the “America Was Never Great,” Langone has gone a long ways to repairing his company’s image.
It makes the average person think that the Left just has a major attitude problem. They have been so brainwashed to believe that government is their savior and is responsible to take care of everyone’s needs, turning America into their liberal utopia.
If they just snapped out of it, they might be able to see the facts: that jobs are rolling in, the federal debt is going down under Trump after 8 years of steadily explosive increases, and the establishment no longer has a choke-hold on people’s lives.
Yes, it has taken a lot of guts, but if Trump is truly able to turn the clock back on the federal leviathan and the diminishing freedoms of the American people, he will go down as one of the greats.
What do you think? Does Trump deserve such praise, or is it too early to make the call? Let us know below!
