Home Depot Co-Founder Turns Off the Filter: Trump Could Go Down as One of the 'Greatest Presidents Ever’
Home Depot co-founder Ken Langone said Monday that President Donald Trump could go down in history as one of the greatest presidents of all time if he continues his stunning record of “defying expectations.”
Langone told CNBC that America has a “singular opportunity to get a lot done in this country.” He even made a reference to Ronald Reagan when talking about Trump.
“This guy has got guts,” he added. “And he’s got great people around him.”
Langone then took it one step further:
“If President Donald Trump is able to keep defying expectations — like he did in the election — and push through legislative changes against great odds, he could go down as one of our greatest presidents ever,” Langone told CNBC.
Langone also issued a warning to Republicans, saying if they fail to “get it done” while Trump is in office, they will be out of a job soon.
Trump, Langone added, could “go down as one of our greatest presidents ever” if he gets health care reform, tax cuts and $1 trillion in infrastructure spending through Congress.
The economy certainly hasn't been hurting so far under President Trump. In the first 50 days of his presidency, Trump has overseen the Dow Jones Industrial Average’s best performance since Bill Clinton’s first term in 1993, Market Watch reported.
