Thomas Barrack, the founder of Colony Capital LLC who is supporting fellow real estate mogul Donald Trump for president, said economic inequality and racial tension demand a fresh perspective in Washington.
“The world is shattered. It’s at a tipping point. And what we need is leadership,” Barrack said Monday in an interview on Bloomberg Television. Rather than focusing on government experience, voters should select “somebody that has a vision, that can inspire people, that can then take that vision and people and make it a reality.”
Barrack will speak on behalf of Trump at the Republican National Convention in Cleveland and said he’ll highlight “the character and integrity of the man inside The Donald.”
