Home Depot Co-Founder Plans to Continue Funding Trump’s Campaign Despite Potential Conviction

Billionaire Bernie Marcus, a prominent Republican donor and co-founder of Home Depot, has expressed his intention to financially support Donald Trump’s 2024 presidential bid, even if the former president is convicted of a crime.

Marcus, who previously backed Trump in the 2016 and 2020 elections, has stated that he believes the charges against Trump are unfounded. In an interview with Reuters, Marcus stated, “I think so. Because I think it’s all trumped up.”

While Marcus has pledged his support for Trump, he clarified that he will not be one of his major financial backers.

In the 2020 election cycle, Marcus and his wife were ranked as the seventh-largest individual Republican donors, contributing approximately $25 million to Republican campaigns, according to OpenSecrets. With an estimated net worth of $8.8 billion, Marcus’s support holds significant weight.

Despite his commitment to Trump’s campaign, Marcus also expressed admiration for other Republican candidates such as Nikki Haley and Ron DeSantis.

However, he believes that they would not be able to defeat Trump in the party’s primary nomination. Marcus sees Trump as a “fixer” who can positively impact the U.S. economy and exhibit strength in Middle East foreign policy.
