Tyson announced that he would be voting for Trump in 2015.
“He should be President of the United States, that’s what he should be…. Why wouldn’t anybody like that? A guy that came from where he came from and doing what he’s doing.
Know what that means? That don’t mean he’s a bad guy, that people don’t know what they’re doing. That means people are tired of what you’ve been doing, what we’ve been doing the last 20 years.”
The legendary college basketball coach has been a very vocal supporter of Trump.

“All of us in the Nicklaus family are very happy for you and your family. We now look forward to you doing all that is necessary to bring our country back together again, and make America great again.”

Sonnen has called himself a “huge Trump supporter.”
“Whether you agree with him or you don't, it's absolutely secondary to the fact that he has courage. I listen to these pundits all the time breaking down Trump. 'He's brash and he's bold and he's successful,' and none of those are what it is. There's one word to sum it up. …In his case, it's one word and it's courage. I find it compelling and go Trump.”
