Fox Business News is having to look further and further afield, apparently, to find people to say nice things about President Donald Trump.
On Saturday, Fox Business Network anchor Maria Bartiromo interviewed billionaire Egyptian investor Naguib Sawiris — who called this week for Arab businesses to break their ties with the nation of Qatar.
Bartiromo — who once asked a 44-year-old congressman why he wasn’t on Medicare if he likes it so much, despite his being 21 years too young to qualify — asked Sawiris for his opinion on the Trump presidency.
“Politics and business are two different things,” Sawiris said. When you run your own business, you are indisputably in control, he said, “like a dictator, you can decide on everything.”
“You’re the boss,” Bartiromo said.
“And then you move into politics and think you can do the same,” Sawiris said, recalling his own dalliance with public office. “It doesn’t work like that.”
Pres. Trump, he said, is a political novice.
“It will take some time,” he said, for Trump to grow into the role, “but I believe he comes with a very good vibe. Washington needed some shakeup.”
He went on, “I think we should give him a chance, you know…but he needs to understand he can’t run his politics like his business. Frankly, I like him.”
“All the leftists and communists can be as angry as they want” about the Trump presidency, Sawiris said. “I don’t care.”

Disney heiress who went undercover to Disneyland ‘livid’ at conditions and pay
Heiress Abigail Disney went to one of her family's resorts to see conditions for workers herself and was disgusted by what she saw.
In comments to Yahoo News podcast "Through Her Eyes," Disney described how she went to Disneyland in California undercover and found that workers at the resort were treated poorly—and underpaid.
"Every single one of these people I talked to were saying, 'I don't know how I can maintain this face of joy and warmth when I have to go home and forage for food in other people's garbage,'" said Disney.
Ex-Peru president wanted for corruption arrested in the US
Former Peruvian president Alejandro Toledo was arrested in the United States Tuesday to face extradition to his home country on corruption charges, authorities in the South American nation said.
The 73-year-old is suspected of involvement in the sprawling Odebrecht scandal in which the construction giant paid hundreds of millions of dollars in bribes throughout the continent to secure huge public works contracts.
The Peruvian attorney general's office announced on Twitter that Toledo "was arrested this morning for extradition, in the United States."
Toledo has been formally charged with receiving a $20 million payment from Odebrecht to grant it the tender to build the Interoceanic Highway that links Peru with Brazil.
Comic-Con mines past for future hits on 50th edition
A smorgasbord of sequels, prequels and reunions from "Terminator" to "Game of Thrones" awaits thousands of misty-eyed comic book geeks and sci-fi nerds descending on San Diego this week for the world's largest celebration of pop culture fandom.
The 50th edition of Comic-Con International will see 135,000 cosplayers, bloggers, movie executives and humble fans pile into a sweaty convention center for glimpses of their heroes, in town to promote the next mega-hit films, TV shows and comic books.
This anniversary edition promises to be more nostalgia-laden than most -- among those expected to appear are Arnold Schwarzenegger and Linda Hamilton, who will soon reunite on screen for the first time since 1991's "Terminator 2" for Paramount's killer cyborg sequel "Dark Fate."
