Warren Buffett says he supports Trump’s Cabinet picks ‘overwhelmingly’ – Chicago Tribune

Warren Buffett said he “overwhelmingly” supports President-elect Donald Trump‘s choices for Cabinet positions as the incoming commander-in-chief’s selections face confirmation hearings in the Senate.

“I feel that way no matter who is president,” the billionaire Berkshire Hathaway Inc. chairman and chief executive officer said Thursday in New York at the premiere of a documentary about his life. “The CEO — which I am — should have the ability to pick people that help you run a place.”

“If they fail, then it’s your fault and you got to get somebody new,” Buffett said. “Maybe you change Cabinet members or something.”

Buffett, 86, backed Hillary Clinton in the U.S. presidential election, stumping for her in Omaha, Neb., and headlining fundraisers. The billionaire frequently clashed with Trump and scolded him for not releasing income-tax returns, as major party presidential candidates have done for roughly four decades.
