“In history, there’s never been — in modern times, ever — a president of either party that’s ever lost their mandate when unemployment was under 4 percent,” he said during Tuesday’s “The View.”
O’Leary’s comments came as President Trump saw another blockbuster jobs report for January. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, that month saw an increase of 225,000 jobs and an unemployment rate of 3.6 percent.
“View” co-host Joy Behar responded by claiming that Trump wasn’t “that popular” even amid stellar unemployment figures. Fellow “Shark Tank” investor Mark Cuban told O’Leary: “There’s always a first.”
“Look, I’m not pro-Trump … I’m not pro or con anybody,” O’Leary said. “I’m just saying I’m an investor. I have to think about policy and I think the chance that Bernie is going to turn this country into a communist country is zero.” more here
