In an interview that the published at the weekend, the 90-year-old billionaire praised Trump for having “a businessman’s common sense approach to most things.”
“Now, do I agree with every move that he makes? No, I don’t,” said Marcus, who retired from his role as chairman at the home improvement supplies store in 2002. “But the truth is he has produced more than anybody else. He has,” Marcus added. “If we look at this country, I would say that we are better off today than we were eight years ago or six years ago.”
