The night before polls opened in four states Tuesday in the presidential race, Boston-area businessman Ernie Boch Jr. appeared on Fox Business to talk Donald Trump.
Boch, who previously compared his support of the real estate mogul to picking a woman at a bar before last call, said he thinks it’s time to have someone like Trump in the White House.
“It’s only four years! Let’s give him a shot,” Boch said.
Boch, president and chief executive of Boch Enterprises, was short on specific policy reasons behind his support of Trump, but did say he believes the 69-year-old would cut government waste.
Boch also said he has been a fan of Trump’s since the 1980s, calling him “an amazing business guy.”
In August, Trump attended a rally held at Boch’s Norwood home. Both men had insisted the event was not a fund-raiser, despite a sign asking guests to make checks payable to the campaign.
