Egyptian billionaire to Fox Business: Give Trump ‘a chance’ because he has ‘a good vibe’ and ‘I like him’
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.”
