It was back in 2016 when Dana White helped Donald Trump get elected President of the United States by speaking at the Republican National Convention.
Fast forward four years later and the UFC President was back at it again speaking at his re-election rally. It all went down on Thursday night when White came up to speak at a Trump rally in Colorado Springs, Colo.
“What’s up, Colorado. How are you today?” White said. “So, I’m not a very political person. I’ll start there. But let me say this: There’s things that I could tell you about the President of the United States that you don’t hear on TV and you don’t hear from other people. I’ve known this man for 20 years. We’ve actually become even closer since he’s become the President of the United States. When somebody becomes the President of the United States, you don’t expect to hear from them again, OK? And I understand it. It absolutely makes sense. This guy is so loyal and such a good friend. When I saw him today, when I met him on Air Force One, the first thing he said to me is, ‘How is your family.’
“Good man, very loyal and a very good friend. I see a lot of things from Mr. Trump that the public doesn’t see, and the people who surround me every day see how this man treats me as a friend and other people he’s friends with. He’s a fighter, he loves this country, he’s doing great things for this country, and we gotta win this election again, ladies and gentlemen. Thank you.”
As expected, a bunch of people were turned off by this and made their feelings known on Twitter:
