T. Boone Pickens backs Trump and his Muslim ban
“Yes, I’m for Donald Trump. … I’m tired of having politicians as president of the U.S.,” he said, speaking at the economics-focused SALT Conference at the Bellagio Hotel here. “Let’s try something different.”
The oil billionaire said he would support Mr. Trump’s controversial proposal to ban Muslims from entering the country in the interest of national security.
“We’ve got to know. … We’ve got to have a better policy on bringing people into the U.S.,” he said. “It’s kind of like, ‘Just wander in.’”
