• Mike Tyson Endorses Donald Trump: ‘Hell Yeah! We Tried Obama, Time for a Change’

    Former heavyweight champ Mike Tyson wants to see businessman Donald Trump in the White House come 2016.

    Tyson endorsed Donald Trump Monday on HuffPost live.

    “He should be president of the United States,” he said. “Yeah, hell yeah! Big time. Why wouldn’t anybody like that? A guy that came from where he came from, doing what he’s doing in that field, and now this is where he’s at now. You know what that means?”

    The two have been friends since Tyson was a world champion.

    “We tried Obama, right, time for a change,” Tyson said. “So we got to change. So now let’s try something new. Let’s run America like a business, where no colors matter. Whoever can do the job, gets the job.”

    Tyson also defended Trump’s heavily criticized, hardline stances on immigration and border security.

    “He was really crude. And he needs somebody to work with him on how to deliver his messages and stuff… He’s an average guy like everybody else,” he said.  “Anytime people are going to say bad things about Latinos, they’re going to say bad things about Blacks, bad things about any ethnic people. Whatever it is, that’s just what this country was built on. But it doesn’t stop us from striving. It doesn’t stop us from becoming president. It doesn’t stop us from opening… Univision… No, it doesn’t.”
