Kevin O’Leary has not been shy about his support for President Trump’s economic policies.
If you’ve ever seen even a single episode of the hit television show, “Shark Tank,” you’ve probably seen Kevin O’Leary (aka: Mr. Wonderful) tell it like it is, without sugarcoating anything… ever.
He is never afraid to tell the truth, even if it’s not what people want to hear. (Sounds a lot like President Donald Trump, huh?)
Just take a look at the following clip from the show, but be forewarned, there is censored language.
Now he’s stated that President Trump has a “100% chance” of winning a second term in 2020.
O’Leary appeared at the CNBC Disruptor 50 Roadshow this past Wednesday. During his time there, he praised the President’s “slashing of business regulations during his the first half of his presidential term.”
Take a look:
“Like him or hate him — don’t care. But the policy that’s come out of there in the last two years has ripped all (red tape and business regulations) out,” O’Leary stated.
He continued, “You don’t see it; we never talk about that stuff. But it’s small things like that that all of a sudden my restaurant business that I invested in — a company called Wine and Design … — now we can open up in all these strip malls and sell franchises like crazy because the regulatory environment has changed.”
The multibillionaire hit the nail on the head when he stated, “we never talk about that stuff.” The liberal media is too focused on trashing Trump and everything he does to even see when he does good.
Conservative Tribune writes, “Even Fox News, one of the few outlets Trump doesn’t lump in as ‘fake news,’ often finds itself fighting back against the far-left narrative just as much as it covers Trump’s accomplishments.
Furthermore, O’Leary also tore into coastal elitism obfuscating the tangible effect Trump has had on the economy in Middle America. O’Leary cited that coastal elitism as why Trump will “100 percent” be re-elected in 2020.
“If you think this administration is getting voted out in the next election, you are 100 percent wrong,” The “Shark Tank” star said.
“Where I go to Amarillo, Texas; Champaign; Urbana; Fargo, his name is painted on the barn, and I see it for miles around. And look, I’m not trying to advocate here for it. I’m just telling you, if you think, sitting in Boston or Philly or New York or LA, that’s America, that’s not America. I go to America, and they love what’s happening.”
Conservative Tribune writes:
O’Leary also took a not-so-veiled shot at the Obama administration’s policies, citing how terrible the “last 10 years” have been for small businesses.
“Over the last 10 years the America that I grew up in, and I started my company in, was lost. It was so overregulated and so governed and so punitive for business. And the policy — not the administration and not the past president — the policy that that administration generated, in my view, was un-American,” he said.
If you’ve never watched “Shark Tank,” I couldn’t recommend it enough.
Sure, you occasionally have to put up with some nonsense from people like Mark Cuban, but “Mr. Wonderful” more than makes up for it with his biting honesty.
