Businessmen like Home Depot Co-Founder Bernie Marcus knows how to get things done, he like Trump have created untold opportunities for thousands of people, vendors and organizations that depend on their ingenuity.

So it’s not all that surprising that Marcus in an op-ed article for Real-Clear-Politics, has endorsed Donald Trump, and making the case that another Obama term (under Hillary Clinton), will be the demise of “the American Dream” and the continued erosion of our Republic.

Marcus acknowledged in his article:

“As a backer of former Republican presidential candidates, I now stand in support of Donald J. Trump because the fate of this nation depends upon sending him, and not Hillary Clinton, to the White House.”

He continued:

“I know Donald Trump, but we’re not close friends,” he explained. “However, I believe he will begin on Day One undoing the damage done by President Barack Obama, I stand ready to help him at every turn.”

He also acknowledged that the next president will have a profound effect on the Supreme Court, stating: “Like many, I am deeply concerned about the U.S. Supreme Court. When Trump recently released his list of potential appointees, I grew confident in his resolve to keep our court balanced,” Marcus wrote.

Marcus went on:

“I genuinely believe that if we to started The Home Depot today, we would fail because of the hurdles government, especially the current administration, places in front of small business owners. I never forget The Home Depot’s small business roots — we started as a small business with four stores in Atlanta, Georgia,” he wrote.

“I think of the banker who nearly lost his job by taking a risk and giving us a line of credit when we started. He didn’t just look at our balance sheet; he believed in our character and determination. Government regulators don’t allow this under Dodd-Frank — a law Hillary Clinton wants to make far worse.

“Yet the risks we took in the 1970s have resulted in millions of jobs — not just at The Home Depot, but at our suppliers, our vendors, and even our customers’ businesses. Investors believed in us, and the government did not stop us.

“We could not do this today, for the same reason why so many Americans have dropped out of the workforce, why their wages have been stagnant, why their health care is a mess, and why our economy has stalled. It’s Obama/Clinton-style government that’s getting in the way.”

Trump has already revealed that if he’s elected president, he’ll reach out to those in business and even across the aisle, to solve the mounting issues facing America.
