Trump Just Got Big Endorsement That Would Have Ronald Reagan Beaming – ‘I’m Humbly At Your Service’

Trump Just Got Big Endorsement That Would Have Ronald Reagan Beaming – ‘I’m Humbly At Your Service’

The daughter of Hollywood legend John Wayne announced her support for Donald Trump in a letter to the candidate on Wednesday.

Trump posted the endorsement on his Facebook page writing, “A lovely letter from the daughter of the late great John Wayne. Our country could use a John Wayne right now.”

Aissa Wayne in her letter to the billionaire recounted, “Mr. Trump has visited the birthplace of John Wayne (my dad) in Iowa recently.”

“My dad, I am sure, would be very proud of Mr. Trump and the goal to Make America Great Again!” Wayne added. “I want to thank Mr. Trump for the tireless work he is doing for this country. The average American citizen is mad as hell that our country is being sold down the river. Mr Trump has finally given the people of America a voice for which I am so grateful.”

She closed by writing, “Please know that I am in your corner, and I am certain that my dad would have been a big supporter of Mr. Trump. If there is anything I can do to assist in the campaign, I am humbly at your service.”

Bucking the Hollywood norm (even then), John Wayne was a staunch Republican and friend of Ronald Reagan. The Duke endorsed the Gipper’s candidacy for governor of California in 1966 and made multiple campaign appearances on his behalf.

In one campaign ad Wayne appeared in for Reagan, he dismissed the notion that his friend was merely an actor, and therefore not qualified to be governor of the nation’s largest state.

“So what’s this empty nonsense about Ronald Reagan just being an actor? I’ve watched Ronald work his entire adult life preparing for public service. His will be a new, informed, vigorously dedicated leadership,” Wayne said according to Rare. Among other positions, the future resident of 1600 Pennsylvania Ave. served as president of the Screen Actors Guild for several years.

Wayne backed Reagan in his first run for the White House in 1976. The Western film star passed away months before the former California governor announced his second, and ultimately successful, bid for the presidency.

The two men appeared in this public service Republican “Get Out the Vote” video in 1966 during Reagan’s gubernatorial race.
