Billionaire businessman Ernie Boch Jr., one of Donald Trump’s earliest supporters, repeatedly failed to explain why the Republican front runner would make a good president.
Boch, the head of the Massachusetts-based car distribution empire Boch Enterprises, appeared Tuesday night on the Fox Business Network to explain why Trump should be in charge of the country.
“What I think is almost comical at this point is it seems like everybody is telling you not to vote for this gentleman,” he said. “I’ve never seen it before in any election, local, national — it’s the fortitude that Mr. Trump has to keep going and try to change this country. It’s amazing. I’ve been a fan of Mr. Trump since the 80s.”
Boch was then asked what specific policies he thought Trump would fight for that would benefit the country.
“I think he’s the right guy for the job… government waste, I think, is a big issue. I think he can save the U.S. a lot of money with government waste,” Boch replied.
“I think it’s time for a guy like this in the White House. It’s only four years. Let’s give him a shot.”
Boch later added that Trump supporters were endorsing “the man” — not his policies. “They want him in there.”
Boch previously encouraged voters to support Trump by comparing the candidate to a woman at a bar.
“You’ve got to think of it like this, it’s 2 a.m. and there’s a few girls at the bar, you have to go home with one of them,” he opined to CNN.
