Dan Eberhart is a long-time Republican donor and avid supporter of the GOP. And for much of the last three years, he’s been a supporter of the president as well, despite a few disagreements on trade and tariff issues.

But these days, the compliments are few and far between. Eberhart, the managing partner of Eberhart Capital and CEO of oil field services company Canary LLC, has been vocal in his criticism of the president’s responses to both the coronavirus pandemic and the protests following George Floyd’s killing at the hands of police in Minneapolis.

Eberhart joins host Robin Young to talk about these issues.
