Home Depot co-founder Ken Langone, who voted for Donald Trump in 2016 and has been a Republican donor for years, said this week that he feels “betrayed” by the GOP and Trump himself over the insurrection that took place at the U.S. Capitol last Wednesday.
“Last Wednesday was a disgrace and should never have happened in this country and if it doesn’t break every American’s heart, something is wrong,” Langone said, referring to the Capitol siege. “It breaks my heart, for sure. I didn’t sign up for that.”
The billionaire said he is instead going to focus on supporting Joe Biden in any way he can.
“I’m going to do everything I can from Day One to make sure I do my part to make Joe Biden the most successful president in the history of the country,” he said. “If he’s a great, successful president, we all win.”
