Oscar-winning actor Jon Voight has posted a pair of videos to Twitter in which he affirms his long-held support for President Donald Trump and calls him “the greatest president since Abraham Lincoln.”
The star of “Midnight Cowboy” and “Transformers” addresses his remarks to “the people of the Republican Party,” saying in the two-part video that Trump “has made his every move correct” and that “our country is stronger, safer and with more jobs” with him at the helm.
“This job is not easy, for he’s battling the left and their absurd words of destruction,” Voight, 80, said. “Our nation has been built on the solid ground from our forefathers, and there is a moral code of duty that has been passed on from President Lincoln.”
It wasn’t the first time Voight has publicly linked Trump and Lincoln, the nation’s 16th president, who issued the Emancipation Proclamation and ended the Civil War.
Speaking at an inauguration rally in January 2017 on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial in Washington, Voight said, “God answered all our prayers” by granting Trump the White House, The Hill reported.
