Longtime Donald Trump supporter Jon Voight spoke at Thursday's Make America Great Again Celebration in Washington, D.C., claiming Abraham Lincoln "is smiling knowing America will be saved by an honest and good man who will work for the all the people, no matter their creed or color."Like Trump, Lincoln had scant political service before becoming president. He served just one term in Congress and a few years as state legislator.
In his short speech, which took place on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial, Voight also defended Trump against the "barrage of propaganda" that came his way over the last year and thanked God for answering "all our prayers" by electing Trump to the presidency.
"We have all been witness to a very grueling year and a half for the president-elect," Voight said. "We have been witness to a barrage of propaganda that left us all breathless with anticipation, not knowing if God could reverse all the negative lies against Mr. Trump, whose only desire was to make America great again. He certainly didn’t need this job, and yes, yes, God answered all our prayers. Because here it is."
I believe Lincoln is smiling because we have Jon Voight speaking for patriotic Americans.
