Home Depot co-founder Bernie Marcus, 90, said in an interview that he intends to back President Donald Trump‘s 2020 re-election – and the chain store he left in 2002 now facing boycott calls.

The interview published over the weekend in the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. Marcus said he admired Trump for holding “a businessman’s common sense approach to most things.”

He added: “Now, do I agree with every move that he makes? No, I don’t. But the truth is he has produced more than anybody else. He has,” Marcus explained. “If we look at this country, I would say that we are better off today than we were eight years ago or six years ago.”

A hashtag #BoycottHomeDepot quickly began spreading on Twitter Tuesday, with many users saying they would turn to Home Depot competitor Lowe’s instead.

The billionaire former executive has reportedly contributed $7 million to Trump’s 2016 campaign. He also donated large sums to many philanthropic causes.
