Jon Voight: Trump Is Greatest President Since Lincoln

USA Today reports:

On Friday night, the actor Jon Voight released a two-part video on Twitter calling President Donald Trump “the greatest president since Abraham Lincoln.” Voight started his video by saying, “our president has our utmost respect and our love. This job is not easy for he’s battling the left and their absurd words of destruction.”

“I’m here today to acknowledge the truth. I’m here today to tell you, my fellow Americans, that our country is stronger, safer, and with more jobs because our president has made his every move correct,” continued Voight. He then denounced the “political left” and said that “we are the people of this nation that is witnessing triumph.”

Newsweek reports:

Much of the language is reminiscent of a similar rhetorical style used by the president. Voight interjected that the country was safer and had “more jobs” because of President Trump’s actions. Replicating a similar sense of hyperbole frequently employed by the White House, Voight claimed that “every move” of Trump’s has been played correctly.

In March of 2016, when many conservatives were still wary of supporting Donald Trump’s candidacy, Voight released a statement to Breitbart making no bones about his position.

“I, Jon Voight, can say, without hesitation, that Donald is funny, playful, and colorful, but most of all, he is honest,” the statement reads. “I pray all Americans who have seen and felt the meltdown of America with the Obama years, to please fight for Donald Trump. He will not let us down.”

Voight has been trending at #1 on Twitter since this morning. Back in March, Trump nominated Voight to the Kennedy Center’s board of trustees.
