In a recent interview, he slammed the press for not scrutinizing Joe Biden’s relationship with a former Klansman-turned-senator while warning that voters should re-elect President Trump because ‘Democrats do not like America.’

The former All Pro running back, who spoke in support of Trump at the Republican National Convention this past summer, said Democrats will ‘take your freedoms’ if they win in November. 

 

Dennis Rodman: Former NBA star Rodman has previously said that he likes Trump as a friend but has been more tight-lipped about whether he likes him as president. 

He took an about turn this year, however, calling Trump for a ‘Make America Great Again’ tweet days after he death of black man George Floyd in police custody. 

‘Make America Safe for minorities,’ Rodman returned. 

 

Mike Tyson: Trump and Tyson have had a rocky friendship and business partnerships for at least 30 years.

‘Keep punching Mike!’ he wrote. 

 

Floyd Mayweather: In November 2016 as Trump was elected, Mayweather defended his vulgar comments about women calling it ‘locker room talk’. 

‘Listen, if y’all didn’t want the man in the White House, y’all should have voted the other way,’ Mayweather told Hollywood Unlocked. 

More recently he has tried to distance himself from the president, however, and hit back at claims that they are friends. 

‘I don’t want my name in no bulls–t,’ Mayweather told TMZ in 2018. ‘I’m out of it.’

On July 4, he announced that he no longer supported Trump as he launched his own presidential bid. 

‘I am taking the red hat off, with this interview,’ he told Forbes

He also said it was wrong to assume that black people will always vote for Democrats. ‘To say that the Black vote is Democratic is a form of racism and white supremacy,’ he claimed. 

The rapper has denied claims that he is being used by Trump to siphon black votes from the Democrats with his presidential bid this year.   

 

Kentucky Attorney General Daniel Cameron: The Kentucky AG has become a high-profile name this year for his role in the Breonna Taylor case. 

Trump also shortlisted him on his Supreme Court nominee list and he spoke at the Republican National Convention in support of the president. 

Cameron has claimed that Trump is the ‘best for this country’ amid racial strife. 

‘Whether it be economically, or whether it is related to how he fights every day for the American worker,’ he told ABC News
