GOP front-runner Donald Trump played a pivotal role in the career of former boxing heavyweight champion Mike Tyson in the 80s and 90s. Trump became an adviser to Tyson after the champ’s guardian and trainer, Cus D’Amato had died, so there is a lot of loyalty there.
They have been best friends throughout the years so it’s only fitting that Tyson would come to the aid of his friend while watching the media try to destroy his character that he is built over the last 40+ years.
From The NY Post:
“Now he knows what it’s like when everybody is out to get you,” Tyson told The Post this week. “He’s probably never known that to this extent. All those people he sat down with and gave him [things], now those people are saying, ‘We’ve got to get rid of him at all costs.’ ”
People are combining together to make sure he doesn’t win. He’s probably telling himself, They hate me more than they hate [President Barack] Obama.”
“You know it’s crazy when people who fought so hard to get rid of Obama would now rather keep him because they hate Trump more than they hate him.
There’s so much hate in this country. I don’t care what color you are. You’re just born with that hate in us.”
“I think it’s a pretty awesome thing that he’s doing so well,” Tyson said. “People are combining together to make sure he doesn’t win. He’s probably telling himself, ‘They hate me more than they hate [President Barack] Obama.’ You know it’s crazy when people who fought so hard to get rid of Obama would now rather keep him because they hate Trump more than they hate him.”
When you have someone that is this loyal to you, you have something that is very special. Yes, Tyson was a fierce boxing champion in the ring, but he is also sensitive to his friends and the people he cares for.
Donald Trump is experiencing things he never thought he would while running for the highest seat in the land. Nobody said it would be easy, but the billionaire businessman boldly put himself and his family out there to help make America great again. That speaks volumes.
