Activist investor Carl Icahn doubled down on his support for his friend and presidential candidate Donald Trump on Wednesday.
Icahn contended that electing the controversial billionaire businessman would be a "no-brainer" for American voters. He echoed the anti-establishment sentiment that took Trump to the top of the polling for the Republican presidential nomination this summer.
"I think he has a chance. He's sending a message to the middle class," Icahn said on CNBC's "Fast Money: Halftime Report." "I don't know why you wouldn't vote for someone with that message."
