Rape conviction? No problem! Team Trump reportedly wants Mike Tyson at GOP convention
Only the best people for Donald Trump:
More from Bloomberg:
Donald Trump’s campaign aides are lining up a slate of iconic sports figures to appear at the national convention in Cleveland next month—including former undisputed world heavyweight champion Mike Tyson, legendary Chicago Bears coach Mike Ditka, former Indiana University basketball coach Bobby Knight and NASCAR chief Brian France, people familiar with the planning told Bloomberg Politics.
“Mike Tyson endorsed me, I love it,” Trump said in April in Indiana. “You know, all the tough guys endorse me. I like that.”
Following the Indiana rally, Trump was criticized for touting the endorsement of the former boxer who had served three years in prison after being convicted in the state for raping a beauty pageant contestant.
Tyson’s presence would be extra-special in light of Trump’s remarks today:
Like we said: The best people.
It’s really not so unbelievable after all.
