Jack Nicklaus Endorses Trump For President
On his Twitter account Thursday, golfing legend Jack Nicklaus released a statement endorsing President Donald Trump for president ahead of next week’s election. The statement read, “I have had the privilege over the last three-and-a-half years to get to know our current President a little more as his term progressed. I have been very disappointed at what he’s had to put up with from many directions, but with that, I have seen a resolve and a determination to do the right thing for our country. He has delivered on his promises. He’s worked for the average person.”

The 80-year-old has continued to support the president even after he and his wife were diagnosed with COVID-19 earlier this year but neither suffered from any symptoms.
Nicklaus and Trump have had a long-standing relationship often playing together at Trump golf courses.
