Unexpectedly, a major Democrat millionaire applauded former President Donald Trump. The billionaire told Fox News that Trump has played an “incredible” role as president and was “very impressed” with his achievements.
“I’m a Democrat, but I have to give credit where credit is due,” the billionaire said. “President Trump did a lot of great things for this country. He cut taxes, he strengthened the military, and he stood up to China. I think he was a great president.”
Given American politics’ profound party division, the billionaire’s words may surprise many. They also show that some Democrats are realizing Trump was not as horrible as they anticipated.
Trump’s immigration, healthcare, and environmental initiatives caused controversy. He oversaw a healthy economy and made progress on major problems like trade with China.
Whether the billionaire’s words will affect American politics is unknown. However, they imply that some Democrats are increasingly inclined to credit Trump for his successes.
The billionaire’s remarks will certainly spark debate among Democrats and Republicans. The billionaire’s praise of Trump may be criticized by Democrats, but others may see it as bipartisanship. Republicans may welcome the billionaire’s words and use them to appeal to centrist Democrats.
Trump is considering running for president again in 2024, so the billionaire’s words are noteworthy. The billionaire’s backing might help Trump if he runs.
