Donald Trump is getting his fair share of presidential endorsements from athletes and celebrities. Tom Brady is a close personal friend after all, and the New England Patriots quarterback is on record as saying he hopes Trump wins the election.
We can now add Mike Tyson to this extremely prestigious list.
Tyson appeared on HuffPost Live to officially give his endorsement, and here's some of what he had to say:
"He should be president of the United States," Tyson told HuffPost Live's Alex Miranda during a conversation about his Adult Swim show "Mike Tyson Mysteries."
Tyson said he's looking for a new, business-minded leader for the country after Obama's eight years in office.
"Let's try something new. Let's run America like a business, where no colors matter. Whoever can do the job, gets the job," Tyson said.
While Trump has gotten criticism for his inflammatory comments about immigrants, Tyson was quick to come to the candidate's defense. Tyson admitted that Trump's words were "crude," but he said he doesn't believe Trump actually "thinks of Latinos in that way."
It's unlikely that Tyson's endorsement will carry much weight, and given his checkered past, it could actually end up swaying people to cast their vote elsewhere.
