Citadel’s Griffin wants to know Trump’s running mate before deciding to donate

LONDON (Reuters) – Billionaire investor Kenneth Griffin did not give the president any money Donald TrumpQatar’s election campaign, but he will wait to see who the former US leader chooses as his running mate, he told participants at the Qatar Economic Forum in Doha on Tuesday.

Asked if he had donated to Trump’s campaign, he said, “No,” adding, “I’m going to see who he (Trump) picks as his vice presidential candidate.”

“If President Trump returns to the White House, you will see a global perception of a stronger America,” said Griffin, CEO and founder of the $61 billion hedge fund Citadel.

“America is not demonstrating credibility or strength in its actions around the world today,” Griffin added.

He expects Trump will not abandon his Ukraine efforts if elected, but added that one can never be certain of Trump’s response.

Griffin added that he didn’t think Trump would have excessive regulation of financial markets.

He said President Joe Biden doesn’t understand “that we need to curb inflation,” referring to soaring consumer prices in recent years.
