“The big story is the American people saying we’ve had enough—Democrats and Republicans,” Langone told Neil Cavuto. “They’re saying nobody’s listened to us. I think what we’re witnessing right now in America, thank God, is a peaceful revolution.”

“Who the hell would’ve thought that Donald Trump in May of this past year would be where he is today? You would’ve been told you were nuts. You know why? They miscalculated the anger and the concern of the American people. They’re fed up. They’re fed up with the system, they’re fed up with the pundits, they’re fed up with the consultants, they’re fed up with the Sunday morning shows. All of this stuff doesn’t matter now.”

The Home Depot co-founder says he is supporting John Kasich for the presidency.

“I’m supporting John Kasich wholeheartedly, enthusiastically and with every bit of energy I’ve got,” he said.
