"People can really grab that opportunity."

Under Armour CEO Kevin Plank sat down with CNBC's Scott Wapner for an exclusive interview today to discuss Under Armour's turnaround plan amid their plummeting stock, the company's earning report, and his opinion on President Trump- who he sees as a "real asset to our country."

Plank was open about his admiration of President Trump and mentioned that there's a lot he respects about the man.

Per Business Insider:

"To have such a pro-business President is something that is a real asset for the country," Plank said. "People can really grab that opportunity."

"He wants to build things he wants to make bold decisions and be really decisive," Plank said, referring to Trump's plans to build a border wall and pass a large infrastructure improvement bill. 

"I’m a big fan of people that operate in the world of publish and iterate versus think, think, think, think, think," Plank said. "So there’s a lot that I respect there."

Under Armour's shares are down nearly 30% this year, as it gave 2017 sales guidance below Wall Street expectations.

It'll be interesting to see how Plank's pro-Trump comments during today's interview impact their numbers moving forward.
