Indiana University basketball coach Bobby Knight endorsed GOP frontrunner Donald Trump, praising him as the best man for the job as President of the United States in front of roughly 7,500 supporters in Indianapolis, Indiana on Wednesday night.
“You folks are taking a look at the most prepared man in history to step in as President of the United States, that man right there,” Knight said of Trump.“There has never been a presidential candidate prepared to the length that this man is.”
Knight asked all former military members stand up and be recognized.
“There will be no president who has ever had a better relationship with our military nor they with them,” Knight told them. “This man will see that that group of people that we so depend on is really taken care of and treated in the best way possible.”
Knight commented on how many pundits say Trump should act more presidential. “I don’t know what the hell that means,” Knight joked. “To me, I think of Harry Truman. They said Harry Truman wasn’t presidential and damn he went on to be one of the three best presidents in United States’ history.”
“Under his administration, there will never be another thing like what happened in Benghazi,” Knight added. “That will never happen in a Trump administration.”
“There has never been a more honest politician than Donald Trump,” Knight declared. “You will be responsible for the shift that America will make into what we want America to be,” he added, telling everyone to vote for Trump on Tuesday.
