Ken Langone, investor and co-founder of Home Depot, said Wednesday that he is ready to support Donald Trump's presidential run if his preferred candidate drops out.
News broke in February that Langone, a GOP mega-donor, would back Ohio Gov. John Kasich's campaign. But multiple sources told NBC News on Wednesday that Kasich planned to drop out — he was the last man standing against Trump in the primary competition .
"Well, it is what it is," Langone said of Kasich's expected exit from the race, adding that he thinks "We're at a point where the American people are saying, 'Hey, forget you guys, we know what we want, we're not happy and we're going to do some drastic things.'"
"I'm all in," Langone said of a potential Trump ticket. "And you want to know something? I think he'll do a hell of a good job."
In fact, Langone predicted that Trump would beat Clinton in the general election.
As for his personal dealings with the New York real estate magnate, Langone said he's "never had any adverse experiences with him" and praised his business dealings.
"Look around this city," he said, from the Sohn Investment Conference in New York. "It's not easy to put big buildings up in this city. He does it with great aplomb, and he does it in a very effective way."
