Brett Favre Endorses Donald Trump For President

Pro Football Hall of Famer Brett Favre endorsed Donald Trump for reelection on Friday. Freedom, religion, taxes, first responders, and respect of American principles were on the gunslinger's mind when he wrote out his glowing endorsement.

"My Vote is for what makes this country great, freedom of speech & religion, 2nd , hard working tax paying citizens, police & military," Favre tweeted. "In this election, we have freedom of choice, which all should respect. For me & these principles, my Vote is for @RealDonaldTrump."

Favre joins others out this week with endorsements for Trump, including Jack Nicklaus, Jay Cutler, and David 'Boomer' Wells.

It's no secret Favre is a big fan of the president. The two golfed together at the Trump-owned National Golf Club in Bedminster, New Jersey back in July. Favre praised the president afterwards.

“He was as nice and engaging as he possibly could be, considering what type of stress he’s under,” Favre said in an interview with Fox News. “But I’ll say this: I respect the office of the president of the United States, regardless of who’s in office. Had Barack Obama, George Bush, Bill Clinton, anybody during my era, had they asked me to play golf, I certainly would have jumped at the opportunity, simply because regardless of what they believe in, just to be asked is an honor.”

“We had a couple of holes where we picked up, no score was penciled in, but for the most part, he can play,” Favre said. “He hits the ball very good, and I’ll also tell you this, he’s a fast golfer. There was times I had a 140-yard shot, and he’s up there at the green with his putter, ready to go.”

Favre, a resident of Mississippi, will be voting in a state that hasn't gone to a Democrat candidate for president since Jimmy Carter in 1976. Hillary Clinton lost the state by nearly 18% points in 2016.
