Outspoken Donald TrumpDonald John TrumpFox News president, top anchors advised to quarantine after coronavirus exposure: report Six notable moments from Trump and Biden's '60 Minutes' interviews Biden on attacks on mental fitness: Trump thought '9/11 attack was 7/11 attack' MORE ally Roger Stone says he isn't ruling out backing the Libertarian Party in the presidential race.


In an interview with ABC’s ‘Powerhouse Politics’ podcast, Stone said he would consider backing the ticket of former Republican Govs. Gary Johnson and Bill Weld, who are running for the Libertarian ticket.

"I am a giant fan of both Gary Johnson and Bill Weld, they’re both personal friends, they’re both giants in my opinion," Stone said.

Stone went so far as to say he thought the Libertarian nominee could deserve a spot on the general-election debate stage.

But he said he still plans to support Trump, the presumptive GOP nominee, for president.

"I have great affection for Donald Trump and I’m very excited about what he’s been able to achieve here and I’m very much in the Trump camp," Stone said.

"On the other hand I’d like to see his platform, I’d like to see his running mate, I’d like to see how the campaign proceeds."
