Scott Baio has decided he wants Donald Trump in charge of the United States for the next four years.

Baio, who is best known for being the lead on Charles in Charge and Chachi Arcola on Happy Days, told Fox News Saturday that he is standing behind the billionaire businessman.

“It’s very simple, because when he speaks I understand him,” Baio said.

“He speaks like I speak, he communicates with people very well. I want him, as any one person can do, to go into Washington and blow it up.”

Baio had previously endorsed Wisconsin governor Scott Walker, who pulled out of the race in September. At the time, Walker requested that several of the candidates from crowded field do likewise in order to stifle Trump’s bid for the nomination.

Baio said he is looking for a catalyst for change in Washington as he is “fed up” with the Republican Party.

“I’m fed up. I’m done with them, I’m done with the Republicans,” he said. “They’ve lied and conned and B.S.’ed me for a very long time now and I don;t even consider myself a Republican anymore. I’m a conservative independent”

Baio joins a growing list of celebrities who are backing Trump’s bid including Kid Rock, Jon Voight, Ted Nugent and Hulk Hogan.
