Late last year, Headline Politics writer Wayne Dupree covered statements in which former world heavyweight boxing champion, Mike Tyson, defended Donald Trump against liberal attacks.
Tyson said, “Hey, listen, anybody that was ever president of the United States offended some group of people.”
He added, “He (Trump) deserves a chance.”
Now however, the champ is moving beyond endorsement and saying flat-out that he will vote for the GOP front-runner, and if it were possible he’d have another 20,000 people join him.
Tyson also took a shot at our current President in the process.
Via The Daily Caller:
Mike Tyson is supporting Donald Trump because he shows him respect — something Tyson said no other politician has ever done.
During an interview with the Daily Beast, the 49-year-old confirmed that he’s voting for the Republican front-runner.
“Yeah! Hell yeah,” Tyson said. “That s*** is the real deal. Listen: I’m a black motherf***** from the poorest town in the country. I’ve been through a lot in life. And I know him. When I see him, he shakes my hand and respects my family. None of them—Barack, whoever—nobody else does that. They’re gonna be who they are and disregard me, my family.”
“I’m voting for him,” Tyson added. “If I can get 20,000 people or more to vote for him, I’m gonna do it.”
If Tyson were a Democrat, he could just vote multiple times until he reached that 20,000 goal.
The aforementioned interview focused mostly on how Tyson, a converted Muslim, could throw his weight behind Trump.
