J.D. Vance, author of the bestselling memoir Hillbilly Elegy and now an Ohio Senate candidate, admitted Monday that he regretted his past criticism of former President Donald Trump.

In an interview with Fox News Monday, Vance, who did not vote for Trump, acknowledged his old disapproving tweets from 2016 but confirmed that he’s had a change of heart and believes Trump left a positive legacy.

“Like a lot of people, I criticized Trump back in 2016,” the Ohio based venture capitalist remarked. “And I ask folks not to judge me based on what I said in 2016, because I’ve been very open that I did say those critical things and I regret them, and I regret being wrong about the guy.”

“I think he was a good president,” he added, “I think he made a lot of good decisions for people, and I think he took a lot of flak.”

Vance called Trump “noxious” in 2016 and gave his vote to independent Evan McMullin, according to the Cincinnati Enquirer.
