KNOCKOUT: UFC President Dana White Gives Speech Praising Donald Trump
President Donald Trump received a resounding endorsement from UFC President Dana White on February 20, 2020 at a rally in Colorado Springs, Colorado.
MMA Junkie reported that White gave a speech to thousands of Trump supporters at Broadmoor World Arena.
White abstained from delving into political talking points. Instead, he praised the character of Trump.
Trump was in attendance at UFC 244 last November at Madison Square Garden in New York City. The head of UFC gave a speech back at the 2016 Republic National Convention where he endorsed then candidate Trump.
White gave the following speech in support of Trump:
“What’s up, Colorado. How are you today?” 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.”
