Mike Tyson – The legendary fighter once revealed during a sit down with HuffPost Live his endorsement for Trump. “He should be president of the United States.”
Fast-forward to April 2017 and it appeared as though Tyson’s support was solely based on a presidential pardon. During an appearance alongside Gov. Chris Christie at the NJ Reentry Corporation Conference at St. Peter’s University in Jersey City, Tyson asked Christie to give Trump a call about the pardon he was allegedly promised.
“Man, governor, I wish you could talk to Donald Trump, ’cause I haven’t talked to him in many years,” he said. “Tell him he said he was going to give me my pardon so I am waiting for my pardon. He said it out of his mouth so I’m waiting.” Although, it’s important to note that Tyson’s rep later denied the boxer used the word “pardon” but said “partner.”
