Chuck Norris: 'People With a Negative View of Trump Will Be Pleasantly Surprised'
Chuck Norris has written an op-ed in support of Donald Trump, saying a "no" vote for Trump is a vote for Hillary Clinton, and she's counting on that.
Norris said he met Trump 42 years ago when Norris was retiring as World Martial Arts Champion.
"The promoters made a big deal about my retirement," he wrote. "Donald was there as a special guest."
"When I met him, he asked me why I was retiring. I answered, 'Donald, I’m 34 years old, and I’ve held the world title for six years. I want to retire a winner.'
"Donald thought for a second, and then said, 'That makes sense to me.'
"That was it. I haven’t seen or spoken to him since. However, I will tell you, I liked him. He was very friendly and sincere.
"I truly believe that the people who have a negative view of Trump will be pleasantly surprised when he becomes the leader of our country," Norris wrote. "I also believe he will make positive changes that will benefit the people who need it most."
Norris said Trump's real character can be judged by his family and how he relates to his children.
"Consider not only how poised and positive Trump’s adult children are but also how much they admire and respect their father. Even the liberal media, with all of its bias against Trump, cannot say a negative thing about how much his children love him, and how much he loves his children."
Norris pleaded for Republican unity, quoting Benjamin Franklin: "We must all hang together, or most assuredly we will all hang separately.”
"If Republicans cannot come together as a unified body, then we most assuredly will lose the presidential election, and, consequently, lose many congressional and Senate seats. The Democrats will then dominate Congress, as well as the presidency, for God only knows how long. And most grievous of all, justice seats on the U.S. Supreme Court will be filled by Hillary’s nominees, and their next decade of decisions will certainly dismantle or destroy what is left of our republic."
