UFC President Dana White and President Donald Trump have had a long standing relationship for many years now, dating back to when Trump allowed the UFC to run events in the Trump Taj Mahal over a decade ago.
White, who spoke about Trump at the 2016 Republican National Convention, recently appeared at a Trump rally in Colorado Springs, Colorado to say a few words about our President.
The UFC President, in his brief speech, spoke about the President on a personal level, saying the following (via MMA Junkie):
“What’s up, Colorado. How are you today? So, I’m not a very political person. I’ll start there. But let me say this: There’s things that I could tell you about the President of the United States that you don’t hear on TV and you don’t hear from other people. I’ve known this man for 20 years. We’ve actually become even closer since he’s become the President of the United States. When somebody becomes the President of the United States, you don’t expect to hear from them again, OK? And I understand it. It absolutely makes sense. This guy is so loyal and such a good friend. When I saw him today, when I met him on Air Force One, the first thing he said to me is, ‘How is your family.’ Good man, very loyal and a very good friend. I see a lot of things from Mr. Trump that the public doesn’t see, and the people who surround me every day see how this man treats me as a friend and other people he’s friends with. He’s a fighter, he loves this country, he’s doing great things for this country, and we gotta win this election again, ladies and gentlemen. Thank you.”
Trump and White were last seen together this past November at UFC 244, as the President attended the event, which was headlined by Jorge Masvidal defeating Nate Diaz to win the BMF Championship.
