President Trump received one of his biggest endorsements from the sports field when UFC icon Conor McGregor praised him as a “phenomenal president.”
McGregor, who won his most recent bout against Donald Cerrone in under 40 seconds at UFC 246 on Saturday night, said President Trump is “quite possibly the USA greatest of all time. Most certainly one of them anyway, as he sits atop the shoulders of many amazing giants that came before him.”
“No easy feat,” the fighter added, noting Trump’s historic success has come within the first three years of his term. “Early stages of term also. Incredible.”
“Congrats and Happy Martin Luther King Jr. Day America,” the Irishman concluded.
McGregor’s tweet was in response to an initial tweet from President Trump which commemorated Martin Luther King Jr. Day, falling on the three-year anniversary of his swearing-in ceremony to be president.
“It was exactly three years ago today, January 20, 2017, that I was sworn into office,” the president tweeted. “So appropriate that today is also MLK jr DAY.”
“African-American Unemployment is the LOWEST in the history of our Country, by far. Also, best Poverty, Youth, and Employment numbers, ever. Great!” he added.
Phenomenal President. Quite possibly the USA 🐐. Most certainly one of them anyway, as he sits atop the shoulders of many amazing giants that came before him. No easy feet.
Early stages of term also.
Congrats and Happy Martin Luther King Jr. day America 🇺🇸❤️🇮🇪

The Daily Wire reports Black Voices for Trump hosted an event on Monday celebrating Martin Luther King Jr. and Trump’s accomplishments within the African American community in Raleigh, North Carolina.
The event focused on “the transformation of the black community as a result of President Trump’s pro-growth policies which have empowered African Americans across the country,” the campaign told the Daily Wire.
At the event, Clarence Henderson, a Civil Rights Leaders and Black Voices for Trump board member, said: “Trump is continuing the legacy of Martin Luther King Jr.’s Dream by delivering for African American communities.”
“Today’s event demonstrates the growing support for President Trump’s agenda. Under President Trump, black unemployment hit an all-time low, wages are growing at the fastest pace in a decade, the black poverty rate has reached its lowest point in history, and our cities are transforming thanks to Opportunity Zones,” he continued. “Our voice is finally being heard and now through Election Day 2020 we will secure a second term for President Trump so he can continue creating economic prosperity for generations to come.”
The Daily Wire adds:
Trump’s approval rating among the black community is high and represents a drastic shift in how the Republican Party approaches minority communities.
“After two recent polls revealed the strong support President Trump has among black voters, with the Rasmussen poll showing 34% percent and an Emerson University poll showing 34.5% support from black voters, another poll has been released showing the strong support for Trump among non-white voters,” The Daily Wire reported last month. “An NPR/PBS and Marist poll conducted November 11-15 found 33% of non-white voters approve of President Trump’s performance at his job.”
