Former NFL quarterback Brett Favre has thrown his support behind President Trump, joining other athletes who have recently endorsed his reelection.
The Super Bowl champion and three-time most-valuable player announced that he was voting for Trump over Twitter on Friday morning. His endorsement comes a day after fellow former NFL quarterback Jay Cutler also signaled support for Trump, bucking the trend of other major athletes who have been vocal about their opposition to the president.
“My Vote is for what makes this country great, freedom of speech & religion, 2nd Amnd, hard working tax paying citizens, police & military. In this election, we have freedom of choice, which all should respect. For me & these principles, my Vote is for @RealDonaldTrump. #Vote,” said Favre, who is primarily known for his time with the Green Bay Packers.
