Establishment Republicans who “never dreamed they would be losing control” are trying to keep Donald Trump from getting the GOP nomination, actor Jon Voight said.
In endorsing Trump, the award-winning actor said “he’s an answer to our problems” and “we need to get behind him.”
Voight, 77, told Breitbart News in an interview on March 8 that “we need somebody to go in and reconstruct us in a sort of way, get us back to where we were, who we need to be.”
Voight, who won an Oscar for Best Actor for 1978’s “Coming Home”, blasted Trump’s most vocal critics, particularly losing 2012 GOP nominee Mitt Romney, who recently referred to Trump as a “fraud” who is playing the American people for “suckers.”
“We felt so great about his family, we put [Romney’s] picture on our refrigerators and so on, and now he turns around and does this, which is so way out of line.”
“There are many Republicans fighting to keep him [Trump] from winning the Republican nomination,” Voight told Breitbart News. “You know why? Because he has no bull to sell, and everyone will discover the bull most politicians spew out is for their own causes and benefits. They never dreamed they would be losing control.”
In a statement, he declared: “I, Jon Voight, can say, without hesitation, that Donald is funny, playful, and colorful, but most of all, he is honest. When he decided to run for president, I know he did it with a true conviction to bring this country back to prosperity. He is the only one who can do it. No frills, no fuss, only candid truths.
“I pray all Americans who have seen and felt the meltdown of America with the Obama years, to please fight for Donald Trump. He will not let us down. I pray for all good people to see clearly what faces us now. The right vote will save our nation.”
