Rick Harrison became famous as the owner of Las Vegas’ Gold and Silver Pawn Shop, as made famous on The History Channel’s hit reality TV show Pawn Stars. By the nature of his job, Harrison deals with con artists and swindlers all day every day, and he knew a con artist when he saw former President Barack Obama.
Harrison proudly supported Republican Donald Trump in the last election, and he recently appeared on Fox Business News to share his thoughts about how Obama had been disastrous for Americans and how he finally has hope again now that Trump is in the White House.
Said Rick to host Maria Bartiromo, “The effect of the eight years of Obama is finally showing up.” He continued, “We had .7 GDP [growth]…in the last quarter and if you figure GDP the way we did four years ago, that would be negative growth. Four years ago…they decided all R&D suddenly goes into the plus column instead of the expense column and…it was a way the administration actually boosted up GDP.”
Described Harrison, “Just make it easy to do business and people will do business in this country. Right now it’s literally a nightmare.” Talking about how Obama put in endless regulations plus costly Obamacare, Harrison said, “It’s death by a thousand cuts — just my pawn business.”
He added, “The Obama administration made it illegal for me to loan any money to anyone in the military. I have one compliance guy just for a pawn shop. It’s everything from Homeland Security, FBI, the local police department, IRS – all these regulations I have to keep an eye on constantly and it’s just overwhelming for a small business. Government’s the problem. At least there’s hope now.” Do you agree with Pawn Stars‘ Rick Harrison about Obama? Watch below:
