Donald Trump is urging North Carolina's Republicans to "fight like hell" to sway people to vote for Mitt Romney in this year's presidential election.
The News & Record reports that the real estate mogul says that President Barack Obama doesn't have the business savvy to lead the U.S. to a better economic future.
Trump spoke during the Friday night banquet of the North Carolina Republican Party 2012 State Convention.
He says the country needs a president who is "smart, tough and gets it."
State GOP Chairman Robin Hayes introduced Trump, using his signature line.
Hayes said: "We are waiting for your words in November to say, `President Obama, You're fired!"'
