In an interview with the FOX Business Network’s Liz Claman, Berkshire Hathaway Chairman and CEO Warren Buffett said Hillary Clinton will likely be “the closest in sync” with him on economic and growth plans, and “absolutely” still has his vote right now.
“I think when all is said and done, Hillary Clinton will come out with a variety of plans and she’ll mean them and, if elected, she’ll work to execute them, which is even more important,” Buffett said.
Buffett also praised 2016 presidential candidate Bernie Sanders for his thoughts on the economy, but said their ideas are not exactly the same.
“I agree with what Sanders is saying in terms of the number of people that are being left behind in a very prosperous economy is unconscionable,” Buffett said.
The Oracle of Omaha added, “He has a different idea about what produces the golden eggs. I’m in favor of how he recommends distributing them, but I want to see a lot of golden eggs out there. I’m not so sure what he would do to the goose.”
And on Trump: “He is certainly a serious candidate.”
