Jon Voight Endorses Donald Trump For President: “He’s Answer To Our Problems”
In the chat, Voight makes clear that he’s not settling for Trump because he’s unhappy happy with the other GOP contenders. “I’m not someone who’s saying he’s the best of this group,” he says. “I’m saying I like this guy.”
Voight continues, “He’s an answer to our problems. We need to get behind him. The Republicans need to unite behind this man. We need somebody to go in and reconstruct us in a sort of way, get us back to where we were, who we need to be.”
The veteran star, who is an outspoken Republican, also shared a lengthy statement explaining why he’s backing Trump. Voight says:
“It is true that we Americans have been part of Donald Trump’s life for many years. We were part of his weddings. We were there to see all his children’s births. We were part of his great shows: Miss Universe, ‘The Apprentice’ — and all know, without a doubt, his life has been an open book.
I, Jon Voight, can say, without hesitation, that Donald is funny, playful, and colorful, but most of all, he is honest. When he decided to run for president, I know he did it with a true conviction to bring this country back to prosperity. He is the only one who can do it. No frills, no fuss, only candid truths.
There are many Republicans fighting to keep him from winning the Republican nomination. You know why? Because he has no bull to sell, and everyone will discover the bull most politicians spew out is for their own causes and benefits. They never dreamed they would be losing control.
I am very disappointed at the talk show hosts, also spewing out lies and propaganda against Donald. Why, I wonder? The only thing I can think of is he represents a form of freedom none of them ever saw before, and they are bewildered about it, and frightened about it.
I pray all Americans who have seen and felt the meltdown of America with the Obama years, to please fight for Donald Trump. He will not let us down. I pray for all good people to see clearly what faces us now. The right vote will save our nation.”
As for Trump’s critics, Voight argues, “It’s not right — as if Trump were the danger to our country. He’s a patriot, and the people are responding because they know it’s exactly what has to happen.” He adds, “There are a ton of lies, propaganda, and slander, and its very disturbing. And the American people are saying, ‘Hey, this is nonsense.’ They are on his side now. And they’re right to be.”
As Gossip Cop reported at the time, Voight previousely opened up about his political beliefs last October, saying, “There are a lot of conservatives in Hollywood, and they’re not very welcome. It’s a big surprise that we’ve come to this juncture where people with patriotic thoughts could not find a home in Hollywood.”
He also seemingly slammed Bernie Sanders, telling Cigar Aficionado, “I think the word ‘progressive’ is a very devious term. It was created as a substitute for ‘communist.’ What they propose is the reverse of progress.”
