The academy-winning actor Jon Voight took to Twitter on May 24, stating President Trump as Abraham Lincoln’s greatest president and asserting that his “every” political move has been right.
In the first of two videos entitled “To my fellow Americans,” the Ray Donovan star praised Trump’s efforts to combat the political left and their “absurd words of the destruction.”
“People of the Republican party, I know you will agree with me when I say that our president has our upmost respect and love. This job is not easy, for he is battling the left, and their absurd words of destructions,” the veteran actor began. “I’ve said this once and I’ll say it again, that 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.”
Thank you John, so nice! https://t.co/cfcXpzjYn7

Voight, who is one of the few conservatives in Hollywood, told his followers that he wanted to “acknowledge the truth” that the Trump’s actions and policies have made the nation “stronger, safer, and with more jobs.”
In the second part, Jon Voight goes on to argue that America is “witnessing triumph” despite claims from the political left that it is in crisis.
“The country is stronger, safer, and with more jobs, because our president his every move correct,” Voight says. “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 up for this truth that President Trump is the greatest president since Abraham Lincoln. God bless America, and may God continue to guide this nation. Much love.”

This is not the first time Voight has shown support for the president and other supporters of Trump. In another message to the American people, Voight sent his support for Fox News host Laura Ingraham, a conservative talk show host, who the actor says should be cherished as she believes in the “truth.”
“They’re wonderful people who we need very much at this time when our president is being attacked with lies and slanders from the media,” he said in that video in April.
