Ken Langone, founder of Home Depot has announced that he is backing Donald Trump for president. Langone is a mega donor for the republican party, who had previously backed John Kasich for president. The billionaire could throw his considerable weight and fat wallet into a pro-Trump PAC, that could provide massive advertising between now and November. Langone’s endorsement and offer of support follows the announcement by another mega donor billionaire, Sheldon Aldeson. Alderson spent mega bucks on Newt Gingrich and Mitt Romney in 2012.
Langone said that he is confident that Trump can beat Hillary in the general election. He says that he is all in for Trump and praised his business acumen, saying he had never had adverse business dealings with Trump and pointing out that although most buildings in New York are built over budget and past the deadline, a problem that never seems to affect Trump’s projects.
