Billionaires Better Back Trump, Burgum Urges

North Dakota Gov. Doug Burgum (R) on Tuesday called on billionaires to support former President Trump for the sake of their shareholders and the “prosperity” of America.

When asked on Fox News’s “The Ingraham Angle” about his message to billionaires across the country, Burgum said, “Well, I wish they had gotten the opportunity to know President Trump the way the first lady and I have, because when you see someone who cares this deeply about this country, what he’s going through, and how he gets up and fights for everyday people in America every day.”

Ingraham suggested a lot of billionaires are still planning to support President Biden, especially those that are the “Wall Street types.”

“And then his [Trump’s] policies are all in the right direction,” Burgum continued. “If you’re a billionaire and you care about your shareholders, you care about your family, you care about your grandkids, you should be voting for someone that’s going to bring prosperity to America and peace to the world. That’s what President Trump is doing to do.”

Burgum, who suspended his long-shot bid for the White House late last year and is a billionaire himself, endorsed the former president’s reelection bid in January. He was the first of the former 2024 presidential candidates to official endorse Trump’s presidential run.

In his endorsement speech, Burgum touted Trump’s policies on the economy, the border and energy.

Trump earlier this year hinted Burgum could have an “important” role in his next administration should he win in November, calling the governor the “most solid guy.”

Burgum’s name has emerged on the list of Trump’s potential vice presidential picks in recent weeks as speculation continues to swirl over the former president’s choice. Axios reported earlier this week that Trump’s team believes Burgum would be a safe choice and help draw moderate votes.

“Everybody loves Burgum,” one top Trump adviser told CBS News, while noting Trump is the one who will eventually choose. “We could learn about it in a Truth Social post,” the adviser said.

Burgum announced earlier this year he will not seek another term as North Dakota governor and will depart from the post at the end of his second term in December.
