Daly: 'You're dang right [Trump] will get my vote'


Never one to shy away from an opinion, John Daly doubled-down on his support of leading Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump during a conference call on Tuesday.

Daly mostly stuck to the topics of turning 50 and making his Champions Tour debut this week at the Insperity Invitational in Texas, but when asked what about Trump's personality seems to attract athletes and people from the sports world, Daly became especially impassioned, calling Trump a friend, one of the greatest human beings he's ever met and endorsing him for president because of his business acumen.

Here is Daly's full comment:

"Well, I've known Donald forever, and I know the bad things they say about Donald Trump is not true because I've known him as a friend for so long. I've seen what he's done for all types of people. I know how many people call him a racist and all this, and it just makes me sick because he's not. I've known him too long. I've seen what he does with kids, I know what he does with charities, and the thing I love about Donald, it's time this country is run by a businessman and not people with their hands out, and Donald doesn't have his hands out.

"I not only consider him as a friend, but if people get to know Donald Trump, I think they'll know what I'm talking about. He's one of the greatest human beings I've ever met in my life, and I love him as a dear friend, and you're dang right he'll get my vote."
