Billionaire investor Carl Icahn said Thursday there’s nothing Donald Trump has said in recent weeks, including controversial remarks about a Mexican-American judge, that have swayed his opinion on presumptive GOP presidential nominee.

“I don’t think anybody who supports Donald is happy with that [judge comment],” Icahn told CNBC’s “Squawk Box,” though he added that he still likes Trump.

“You need someone like Donald in Washington very badly,” said the chairman of Icahn Enterprises, who’s been a vocal Trump supporter.

Icahn called Trump a “consensus builder,” saying he believes the real estate mogul has a better chance to fix the nation’s problems than presumptive Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton. “I don’t think there’s any comparison,” he said.
