Under Armour CEO Kevin Plank didn’t hold back his praise for President Donald Trump in an interview with CNBC’s “Fast Money Halftime Report” on Tuesday.
“To have such a pro-business president is something that is a real asset for the country,” Plank said. “People can really grab that opportunity.”
Trump has gained a reputation as a business-friendly president in his short tenure in the Oval Office. He signed an executive order directing departments and agencies to identify two regulations to repeal for every new regulation proposed, and he met with a council of business leaders, including Plank, to discuss roadblocks to business growth. Trump is also expected to roll back Wall Street regulations, including Dodd-Frank.
