Warren Buffett Believes America Has 'Never Been Greater'


Billionaire investor Warren Buffett is optimistic about America's future. The CEO of Berkshire Hathaway recently spoke at Fortune's Most Powerful Women conference and was quoted as saying, "America's great now. It's never been greater."

While he seems to be challenging Donald Trump's presidential slogan, Buffett also went on to add, "Our kids are going to live so much better than we do now."

In terms of the current economy, he referenced key indicators of growth like the improving housing market and strong furniture sales.

CNN notes that the 82-year old has long been a supporter of the U.S. economy, even writing about buying American during the 2008 financial crisis.

Buffett also weighed in on politics, continuing his support of presidential candidate Hillary Clinton who, according to him, has the best chance of winning if the Democrats can get a strong turn out. On the other hand, he believes the Republican party has split into two distinct groups, adding, "You're witnessing a quiet revolution in terms of how America will be governed. It's not a two-party system now."
