In August, Trump asked the businessman to serve as his Treasury Secretary if elected president. Icahn declined at the time, but after the first Fox News Republican debate, Icahn reversed his position and accepted Trump's offer.
Icahn endorsed Trump for the 2016 election and told Cavuto: "I think he's the best by far of any of these guys."
Icahn did note that he and Trump disagree on certain issues, and that he plans to talk to Trump about those issues. But despite their differing views, Icahn said "he's [Trump] definitely my candidate."
