Jon Voight Claims Donald Trump Is The Best President After Abraham Lincoln

In a two-part video message posted to social media platform Twitter, Voight expressed his deep support for President Trump.
While President Donald Trump has many opponents in Hollywood who have openly voiced their criticism against him, there have been only a few Hollywood icons willing to express their approval. It was a surprise, therefore, when Oscar winner Jon Voight released a two-part video message to social media platform Twitter on Friday, May 24, night, revealing his support for the President. The video messages were filled with appreciation for the Republican President, and Voight was definitely not stingy in raining praises for Trump, reports Fox News. In response to the posts, individuals on Twitter had mixed opinions.

The conservative actor, speaking directly to the "people of the Republican Party," declared President Trump "the greatest President since Abraham Lincoln." In the video, Voight began, "I know that you'll agree with me when I say that our president has our utmost respect and our love. This job is not easy for he's battling the left and their absurd words of destruction... 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."

He added that he wished to "acknowledge the truth" that "our country is stronger, safer, and with more jobs" as President Trump "has made every move correct... Don't be fooled by the political left because we are the people of this nation that is witnessing triumph. So let us stand with our President, let us stand for this truth that President Trump is the greatest President since Abraham Lincoln. God bless America." Unsurprisingly, Twitter users had many views to share.

Numerous users agreed with Voight's statements. Actress Mindy Robinson, referring to the recent wave of abortion bans and the general left's reaction to it, posted: Jon and I are both in the pro-life movie “Roe v. Wade” coming out. I’m sure Hollywood will continue to make films that shove their hypocritical leftist narratives down your throat, but we will continue to make movies that appeal to real Americans and our values to spite them! Only the evil and the ignorant believe in abortion, and that’s why the Left works overtime to prevent me from educating the latter.

Others, however, were more critical of his opinions. Twitter user Elisabeth91269 stated: Old: check. White: check. Rich: check. Conservative: check. So-called Christian: check. Alarm bells: definitely a check. Yup, totally fits the profile. OttLegalRebels added:
Jon Voight is an idiot first and patriot second. Bishop Talbert Swan passionately affirmed: Let us stand up for this truth, you are an old, privileged, decrepit, fossil of a white man, from a bygone era, who is publicly supporting a pathological liar, deranged narcissist, sexual predator, and white supremacist.

This is not the first time, however, that Voight has linked President Trump to former President Lincoln. During an address at an inauguration rally in January 2017 at the Lincoln Memorial in Washington, DC, the actor suggested that "God [had] answered all our prayers" because Trump was able to assume his position as President of the United States. He stated, "And President Lincoln, who sits here with us, I'm sure is smiling knowing America will be saved by an honest and good man who will work for all the people, no matter their creed or color." He also said in an interview with Breitbart News in March 2016 as one of Trump's earliest supporters, "Donald is funny, playful, and colorful, but most of all, he is honest. He has no bull to sell, and everyone will discover the bull most politicians spew out is for their own causes and benefits."
