Jon Voight has taken to Twitter to heap praise on Donald Trump, calling the current President Of The United States the greatest leader of the country since Abraham Lincoln.

The Academy Award winning star of 1978’s Coming Home took to Twitter for just the 16th and 17th time on Friday to “tell you the truth,” before then declaring, “President Trump is the greatest president since Abraham Lincoln.”

Voight insisted that Trump’s “job is not easy” as he has to do battle with “the left and their absurd words of destruction.” Ultimately, in Voight’s opinion, the former reality TV star has made America “strong, safer and with more jobs” before asserting that he “has made his every move correct.”

After warning viewers not to be “fooled by the political left,” Voight then declared, “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: President Trump is the greatest president since Abraham Lincoln. God bless America. And may God continue to guide this nation. Much love.”

Voight is one of the few actors that is openly Republican. So much so that he is actually a regular contributor on Fox, and has taken aim at other actors that have attacked the current President Of The United States.

In fact, back in 2016, Voight took aim at Robert DeNiro after the Raging Bull actor said he wanted to punch Trump in the face.

Voight went on Twitter and wrote, “I am so ashamed of my fellow actor Bobby DeNiro’s rant against Donald Trump. What foul words he used against a presidential nominee … who has worked harder than any other man I know in the past year and a half to get a good message to the American people.”
