In a battle cry issued to the GOP on Tuesday, Home Depot founder Bernie Marcus urged Republicans to step up in support of former President Donald Trump’s presidential bid. In a commentary piece published online in Real Clear Politics, Marcus said that anything less than supporting Trump is equal to allowing disaster “for the future of our democracy.”

According to the 94-year-old, he has never been as dismayed during his many years on earth until now, and it’s all thanks to President Joe Biden and his administration’s use of “its enormous powers with contempt for the governed instead of with the consent of the governed as our founders envisioned.”

Going on to share his fear of what America’s future would look like if Biden remains in power, Marcus wrote, “Fundamental change in America is occurring by executive order or the force of the government’s police powers instead of through the legislative process required by the Constitution. From this, I fear that free market capitalism may be replaced by big government socialism. I also fear the erosion of our rights and freedoms, including parental rights, freedom of speech and religion, and due process.”

“In the past, I always had the confidence that a president who was a threat to democracy could be voted out of office in the next election. I am no longer that confident today. My lack of confidence is because the media today is not the watchdog over government that our Founders intended it to be. It is instead the lapdog of government, shielding the public from the entire truth about the policies and actions of the current administration,” he added.

Marcus went further to note the failures of the Biden administration, particularly highlighting the southern border crisis which was a direct result of his border policies.

“The Biden administration’s policies invited an invasion along our southern border by millions of unvetted people, compromised national security, allowed crime to spin out of control in our streets, forced middle-class Americans to raid their retirement funds to put food on their tables, and divided America more than at any time in our history since the Civil War. Joe Biden has fulfilled Barack Obama’s promise to ‘transform’ America. This is not a welcome transformation, as confirmed by Biden’s dismal job approval ratings,” he said.

The co-founder of Job Creators Network then said that Trump will strengthen the nation.

“It is essential to our national security that America’s enemies fear our president,” he stated, adding, “America is worth saving!”

Marcus endorsed Trump’s campaign in November, predicting that the GOP presumptive nominee would “win the nomination.”
