Serial entrepreneur and Camping World CEO Marcus Lemonis had some choice words on Wednesday about those who may support President Donald Trump's response to the violent white supremacist rally in Charlottesville, Virginia.
"There's no doubt that there is probably not many consumers in this country today that are in favor of what has been said in the last couple days and if they are, quite frankly, don't shop at my business," Lemonis says.
Lemonis told "Power Lunch" he is "horrified" by what he's been hearing and seeing from this administration, according to a story by CNBC.
He said it's important that CEOs speak for themselves as individuals on policy and also speak for their companies as it relates to policy that affects their businesses. However, they should be very careful, he said.
"I'm concerned about certain CEOs dancing on the fence, fearing retaliation or fearing something," he says. "It's scary right now."
