Donald Trump’s latest supporter is a total knockout


Donald Trump has gathered up quite a few interesting endorsements during his campaign for the Republican nomination for president. Commentator Ann Coulter loves him because of his immigration stance. So does radio host Michael Savage. Even actors like Gary Busey and Steven Baldwin are aboard the Trump bandwagon.

The latest Trump supporter, though, may be the strangest yet: former heavyweight champion Mike Tyson.

“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 on HuffPost Live this week.

Trump had better hope that Iron Mike’s word means something in Iowa, where he has lost his lead in the polls to retired pediatric neurosurgeon Dr. Ben Carson. Carson has gotten his own share of strange endorsers, from musician Kid Rock to NASCAR legend Richard Petty. Even Roger McGuin, the former lead singer of seminal folk-rock group The Byrds, has said he supports the Baltimore doctor.
