In an op-ed published by RealClearPolitics in early November, Home Depot co-founder and former CEO Bernie Marcus issued an endorsement for 2024 GOP frontrunner Donald Trump.
"I understand the frustration of some of my Republican friends who do not like or are offended by things Donald Trump does and says. I, too, have been frustrated at times, but we cannot let his brash style be the reason we walk away from his otherwise excellent stewardship of the United States during his first term in office. Now is the time for unity to save The American Dream for future generations," Marcus wrote.
Marcus, noting inflation, the open southern border, and other issues under the Biden administration, said "I endorse Donald J Trump as the nominee of the Republican party and as our next President."
"I endorse him not only because he has the best chance of winning the general election but because he is the best person to take on and dismantle the administrative state that is strangling America."
Marcus wrote that the war that has broken out between Israel and the Palestinian terror group Hamas "will present great challenges for the free world for some time, especially in keeping other terrorist groups or nations out of the conflict."
"This will require a president with the judgment, strength, decisiveness, and courage that Donald Trump displayed in his first term when he ordered the strike that killed the Iranian terrorist Gen. Qasem Soleimani and dissuaded Russia from invading Ukraine."
Marcus said that he, along with others, believes that Hamas would not have launched their Oct. 7 attack against Israel if Trump were in office.
"The reason is America’s enemies respect and, more importantly, fear Donald Trump’s judgment, strength, decisiveness, and courage."
