Herschel Walker, the former NFL football great with Dallas, Minnesota and Philadelphia, who later made a star-studded appearance on “The Apprentice,” weighed in on the upcoming presidential election by naming his candidate of choice: Donald Trump.
In part, because of Trump’s controversial remarks about Muslims and the need to temporarily shut U.S. borders to them for security reasons.
“Look, we can’t build a wall and not let people in the country,” Walker said to TMZ Sports. “But we do have to get this country safe. We have to quit being politically correct. We have to do what’s right to save America.”
And that means Trump for president, Walker said.
“I guarantee you [Donald] would be better than a lot of people in office now,” Walker said, TMZ Sports reported. “That I can tell you for a fact. Donald has said what he’s said, but his numbers haven’t gone down. That’s a sign he is saying the things that people think, but are afraid to say themselves. Donald is saying what people want to hear.”
Walker appeared on the eighth season of “The Apprentice,” the long-running series hosted by Trump.
