The billionaire sparked an online controversy when he recently told the Atlanta Journal Constitution that he plans to donate to the president's 2020 reelection bid.
Marcus said that, while he doesn't "agree with every move that he makes," Trump has still "produced more than anybody else...
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.".
Marcus retired from Home Depot back in 2002, and the company did not immediately respond to Business Insider's request for comment.
The businessman, who Forbes reports is worth $5.9 billion, is no stranger to the realm of politics.
For years, the billionaire, along with early Home Depot backer Ken Langone, have functioned as mega donors for the Republican party.
#HomeDepot founder Bernie Marcus was one of #Trump's largest donors in 2016, giving $7 million to Trump's campaign through outside groups. »
