'The Only Candidate for Me': Pixar Icon Throws Support Behind Donald Trump
John Ratzenberger, the Pixar legend and beloved actor of “Cheers,” appeared on Your World today to exclusively announce who he’s supporting for president.
“Donald Trump’s the only candidate for me,” said the star actor, producer and director.
Ratzenberger explained that he wants America “to become self-reliant again,” cheering “people who get up in the morning, and put their hands to something useful.”
“Manufacturing is the backbone of the United States of America. There’s no question about that,” he said. “Now, the only candidate out there is Donald Trump, for me, because he’s a builder.”

Basic handiwork skills were cherished during his childhood, Ratzenberger said, even if you were “a stockbroker” or “an attorney.”
“You still know how to fix your own screen door or change the spark plugs on your car. And that’s all changed now,” he told Neil Cavuto.
“It’s ‘oh, we have to go to college, have to go to college.’ I went to college. But you know, that didn’t stop me from also being a carpenter … Why not get back to that?”
Students today ought to get back to home economics and shop classes, he added, “so kids can grow up to be self-reliant.”
