Hockey Hall of Fame member Bobby Orr made headlines last week after he declared his support for President Donald Trump.
“The attacks on our President have been unrelenting since the day he took office,” Orr said.
“Despite that,” Orr continued, “President Trump has delivered for all the American people, regardless of race, gender, or station in life. That’s the kind of teammate I want.”
Vote would “keep America moving forward”
“Some of you may still be undecided at this point,” Orr said. “Your vote for President Trump would help keep America moving forward in the years ahead.”
“So please, join Peggy and me in supporting President Donald J. Trump for re-election in this important election,” he urged.
Orr is not the only professional sports legend to get behind Trump. Golfer Jack Nicklaus and NFL quarterback Jay Cutler have also recently come out in support of the president.
“[I]f we want to continue to have the opportunity to pursue the American Dream, and not evolve into a socialist America and have the government run your life, then I strongly recommend you consider Donald J. Trump for another 4 years,” Nicklaus said in a statement on Twitter.
He added, “I certainly have and already cast my vote for him!”
Brett Favre also gives endorsement
Cutler posted a screenshot of Nicklaus’ endorsement to his Instagram account, adding a caption that read, “Never a doubt.”
Former Green Bay Packers quarterback Brett Favre also gave the president his stamp of approval, tweeting, “My Vote is for what makes this country great, freedom of speech & religion, 2nd Amnd, hard working tax paying citizens, police & military.”
He added, “In this election, we have freedom of choice, which all should respect. For me & these principles, my Vote is for @RealDonaldTrump.”
