It all began in 1987 when Tyson competed near the Trump towers in Atlantic City, New Jersey. In 1988, Trump arranged to put an $11 million bid on Tyson to fight Mark Spinks at the Atlantic City Convention hall. They’ve been friends ever since. In October 2015,Tyson endorsed Trump for president.
When you hear Trump talk about not allowing Muslims to enter the U.S. until we get a handle on the terrorist problem, he states that some of his friends are Muslims. Tyson fits into that category, he converted to Islam while he was in prison for three years.
He came to Donald’s defense by empathizing with him about the hostility Trumps been dealing with. He said, “Now Trump knows what it’s truly like to be hated.”
He also added, ” There is so much hate in this country. I don’t care what color you are, you’re just born with that hate in us.”
Tyson stated,“Now he knows what it’s like when everybody is out to get you. He’s probably never known that to this extent. All those people he sat down with and gave him [things], now those people are saying, ‘We’ve got to get rid of him at all costs.’”
They both can identify what it’s like to be targets of media and the liberal public.
Tyson expressed how his friend is doing an “awesome thing” and is glad Trump’s popularity and polls are rising so much in the race for president.
He says to the INQUISITOR it is unfortunate that people who “fought so hard to get rid of Obama” are now hating on Trump.
” People are combining together to make sure he doesn’t win. He’s probably telling himself, ‘They hate me more than they hate [President Barack] Obama.’ You know it’s crazy when people who fought so hard to get rid of Obama would now rather keep him because they hate Trump more than they hate him.”
Mike Tyson is proof that no matter what race you are or which God you worship, you can still support conservatives for president.
