Donald Trump as a candidate for President of the United States is a scary thought for many people, given his negative views on important topics such as immigration and women’s issues. While he has mostly been known as a controversial businessman turned TV personality, he is taking his controversy to the political polls as a Republican candidate. Many celebrities have already come forward slamming Trump and some even disavowing their Republican affiliation, but there are others that have no problem vocalizing their support. Given his politically incorrect ways, it may not be the smartest move to admit you’re supporting Donald Trump, let alone if you’re a celebrity, where these things will blow up in the media. Regardless, these 7 celebrities have come forward with their support and it is rather surprising!
7. Dennis Rodman
This one isn’t too shocking considering former NBA star Dennis Rodman’s affiliations with other controversial political figures, most notably his friendship with North Korea’s Kim Jon-un. However, he was one of the first to go public with his support taking to his Twitter on July 24, 2015 to write his praise for Donald Trump. “@realDonaldTrump has been a great friend for many years. We don’t need another politician, we need a businessman like Mr. Trump! Trump 2016.” Trump responded thanking Rodman and adding, “#MakeAmericaGreatAgain!”
