Home Depot co-founder Ken Langone on Wednesday called for an end to the Mueller investigation and defended Donald Trump’s legitimacy as president.
Langone expressed skepticism when responding to Fox News host Neil Cavuto’s question about Bob Woodward’s book and the anonymous New York Times op-ed criticizing President Trump.
“I’m suspicious that we’re getting close to a mid-term election and this anonymous op-ed, Woodward’s book and I’m also intrigued by the number of people that he cites in the book that have come out vocally and passionately saying ‘I didn’t say that.’ Come on.”
“Forget about it,” Langone said when asked about former President Obama’s recent return to the national stage as a Trump critic. “Obama ought to do what every other great president did. Go off into the sunset. Be the mother of the groom. Wear beige and keep your mouth shut.”
“Give the guy credit,” the Home Depot co-founder said, noting Trump’s accomplishments in negotiating with North Korea before calling for an end to Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation as a hindrance to President Trump’s legitimacy.
“We live in the greatest country on Earth, and the American people spoke loud and clear,” said Langone. “The establishment is shocked that Donald Trump won. But he won. He won fair and square. I don’t — this Mueller investigation, come on, let’s end it. Let’s decide. Come out and say what you got. There’s a notion here that this guy should not be President of the United States. I beg your pardon. He won fair and square. He won 307 electoral votes. He is our president. Respect the office of the presidency.”
