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.
