Actor Scott Baio, who last month endorsed Donald Trump for president, says wants the billionaire in charge of the country because it does not take a "political decoder ring" to decode what the businessman is saying.
"He's a straight shooter when he talks to me," the 55-year-old "Happy Days" and "Charles in Charge" star said Sunday morning on Fox News. "When he talks, I understand him."
"It's a very sort of direct language," Baio said. "I don't need a political decoder ring to understand what the guy is saying."
Baio announced his support for Trump in March, while appearing with Fox News' Judge Jeanine Pirro.
"I want him, as any one person can do, to go into Washington and blow it up," the actor said.
On Sunday, Baio listed reasons why he supports Trump: tax code reform, building a wall on the southern border, repealing Obamacare and cutting corporate tax rates. But Baio hinted he disagrees with Trump on some issues.
"The only person I agree with 100 percent on everything is me. And I'm not running for president," he said.
The actor, who campaigned for Ronald Reagan, said Sunday that he has become unhappy with the Republican Party. He described as the GOP as "untrustworthy" and blamed it for an "erosion of traditional values."
Host Maria Bartiromo said he is "the exact person" to exemplify the mentality of disenfranchised Republicans who back Trump. "You were a conservative or a Republican, however you want to say it, but then you became alienated because you got rolled over."
Baio agreed. He explained that he now considers himself a "conservative independent."
Baio said Obama is "one of the most successful presidents we've ever had," because Republicans politicians have "rolled over" and allowed him to advance a liberal agenda, even after taking control the House and the Senate in the 2010 and 2014 elections.
