Warren Buffett: Here’s why I haven’t been criticizing Donald Trump

I’m not in the business of attacking any president.

At a time when corporate leaders have been highly critical of President Donald Trump over his response to deadly violence at a white nationalist rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, Berkshire Hathaway (BRK.A) Chairman and CEO Warren Buffett has remained quiet, telling CNBC on Wednesday he tries not to mix business and politics.

Buffett said on “Squawk Alley” that he’s not in the business of attacking any presidents and he’s not going to start with Trump.


As a supporter of Democrat Hillary Clinton in the 2016 presidential race, Buffett said he was disappointed by the election results.

(Such an intelligent man and who was a supporter of Hillary Clinton – why?  What qualifications did this women have except that she was a CROOK AND A MARXIST?)

But Buffett argued, as he has in the past, that the country can move forward under Trump. He did say it’s important for the government to function well.

Earlier on CNBC, Buffett said he does not think the economy feels like it’s growing at 3 percent, a level Trump and his administration have set as a goal for what they view as a business-friendly economic agenda of tax cuts and infrastructure spending.

Buffett, who turned 87 on Wednesday, said he’s lived through 15 of the 45 presidents, and he’s bought stocks during 14 of those presidential administrations.

He was in New York City on Wednesday for a private lunch with the winner of an annual auction to benefit Glide, a San Francisco-based homeless charity.

The winner, who wishes to remain anonymous, paid $2,679,001.
