The founder of an executive security firm said in a new interview he credits Donald Trump for his business success — even though he's a "lifelong Democrat."

Kent Moyer is the founder and CEO of the The World Protection Group, and he took classes at Trump University in 2005. He later took another class at the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania, Trump's alma mater.

"I read the Art of the Deal [before attending Trump University]," Moyer told Business Insider. "I've always followed Trump, always admired Trump."

Moyer said his business blossomed from a small operation into a 200-person, international organization. He owes a lot of his success to Trump.

"The courses that I took were outstanding," Moyer said in a video put together by Trump's team to show that his university was not a fraud as some former students have said.

"When you look back at having nothing and then starting a business and you look at the first things that I jumped into in terms of learning business skills, the basics of business, you have to really have a loyalty to Trump University because they gave me some of the basic business skills to start my business and I will never forget that."

Moyer told Business Insider people call him "the Donald Trump of security."

Moyer said he reached out to Trump's presidential campaign after hearing how former students were smearing it in the media. There is also an ongoing lawsuit against the school, and Trump has criticized the judge in that case as being biased.

Moyer told Business Insider he's been a Democrat all his life, but that he voted for Trump in the California primary this week. If, as expected, Trump is the Republican presidential nominee, Moyer said he'll vote for him in November.
