Heisman winner and former football star Herschel Walker isn’t backing down from his support for Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump.
Walker is standing behind Trump despite the massive backlash against the Republican front-runner.
“Look, we can’t build a wall and not let people in the country. We do have to get this country safe. We have to quit being politically correct,” Walker told TMZ.
Walker continued his support for Trump by adding:
We have to do what’s right to save America … I guarantee you [Donald] would do better than a lot of people in office now. That I can tell you for a fact.
Donald has said what he’s said, but his numbers haven’t gone down. That’s a sign he is saying the things that people think, but are afraid to say themselves. Donald is saying what people want to hear.
Trump and Walker have had a relationship for a long time. Trump owned the USFL team that Herschel Walker played for before going to the NFL, and Walker has appeared on Trump’s show “Celebrity Apprentice.”
Walker isn’t the only major sports figure to endorse Trump. UFC president Dana White has also endorsed the real estate mogul for president. (RELATED: UFC President Dana White Endorses Donald Trump [VIDEO])
