Donald Trump Really Loves These Celebrities
We all know that much of Hollywood supported Hillary Clinton in the 2016 presidential election, but Donald Trump had some celebrity supporters too. Since taking office though, a few of those celebrities, including Kirstie Alley and Azealia Banks, have changed their tune and no longer back him. However, no matter what the president does, there are still some stars who stand by him, and Trump absolutely loves having those famous faces publicly support him on their platform.
Here are the celebrities who continue to offer their unwavering support for the commander-in-chief. The usual suspects are listed, but there are some other names that may surprise you.
1. Scott Baio
Our first celebrity die-hard Trump supporter here is Scott Baio simply because he may be the president’s biggest fan.The actor spoke at the Republican National Convention in 2016 and has continued to praise Trump publicly via social media and on talk shows.
He has even defended some of Trump’s actions like it’s his job, and because of that, we’re pretty sure the president loves Chachi.

Actress-turned-Fox News contributor Stacey Dash may be more known now for her sometimes outrageous opinions and political views than she is for her acting on the small and silver screens.

3. Dennis Rodman
Another Trump supporter is Dennis Rodman, a man who some believe could one day play a part in avoiding a nuclear war with one of the U.S.’s biggest adversaries.
The retired basketball star, who Trump fired from Season 2 of The Celebrity Apprentice for misspelling Melania’s name, is friends with Trump. Rodman is also “friends” with North Korea’s leader Kim Jong-un and actually offered to be a mediator between the two sides if needed.

4. Teresa Giudice
Another Celebrity Apprentice alum and someone who many may not realize is a proud Trump supporter is The Real Housewives of New Jersey star Teresa Giudice. On an episode of Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen prior to the 2016 election, Giudice said that she believed Trump would “make a great president” and that she would be voting for him.
The only problem with her statement is that it was just after she served her prison sentence, but still had two years of supervised probation. Under New Jersey law felons who are in prison, on probation, or parole are not permitted to vote in elections.

Legendary singer and songwriter Loretta Lynn is also one of the celebrities who Trump enjoys support from.
In 2016, she told Reuters that the businessman-turned-politician won her over, and in turn, she began stumping for him at each of her live shows.

Trump undoubtedly appreciates all the continued love from one of his most outspoken supporters.
