Billionaire investor Carl Icahn said that Donald Trump winning the election was “a step in the right direction.”
He told CNBC’s “Fast Money Halftime Report, “”I’m certainly happy about it. I really think it’s a very important thing for our economy in general.”
Futures fell over 800 points as returns started to indicate that Trump could win. Icahn used the tumble as a chance to buy more stock.
“I’m glad I did that,” he said. “I guess that’s what makes me happy too.”
