See Dana White endorse Donald Trump ahead of re-election
Donald Trump is up for re-election and it should come to no surprise that Dana White has decided to show his support for the sitting president. The two have been friends for a long time and Trump was one of the early supporters of the UFC. White endorsed Trump during his first election campaign, and decided to release a video endorsement of the sitting president via Twitter.

“Hey everyone, I am Dana White, the president of the UFC. Many of you know who I am, what I do, and that I am friends with the President. I spoke at this convention four years ago and I’m back because I believe we need President Trump’s leadership now more than ever. Before the pandemic, President Trump built the greatest economy in our nation’s history, and created opportunities for all Americans like no one before him. Financial markets hit all-time highs, unemployment at an all-time low, and we weren’t facing the lawless destruction that now is occurring in a few of our great cities,” White said.
“It blows my mind how quickly some of the leadership in this country has forgotten the critical role first responders play in our society. Police departments and other law enforcement, even some fire departments have faced opposition from many in this country. But they are always the people asked to step up when things at their worst and put themselves at risk. That has certainly been the case during this ongoing pandemic. Come on America. Defunding these vital positions is not the answer. The first responders have always taken care of us, and now more than ever, we need to take care of them.”

White then addressed Trump’s handling of the Covid-19 pandemic. Despite Trump initially calling Covid-19 a hoax and then downplaying the severity of the virus, leaving several hospitals without the means needed for tackling the issue, White feels that the president handled the pandemic well.
“Now let’s talk about COVID and let’s be very honest about it. No one person and no one place could have anticipated the challenges that COVID would bring. But President Trump has faced all of these obstacles head-on. He immediately put protective measures in place and he reached out to the best and brightest leading American businesses across all industries to discuss what and his administration could do to get the economy back up and running safely,” White said.
