Legendary golfer Jack Nicklaus issued a statement to Twitter on Wednesday night, urging people to vote and detailing why he voted for President Donald Trump.

In Nicklaus’s view, Trump has “delivered on his promise” and “served ordinary people,” while “more diverse than any president I have ever met, and tried to help people from all walks of life equally.”

Nicklaus also believes that “Trump’s policies will bring the American dream to many families across the country.”

Nicklaus, now 80, has won 73 titles on the PGA Tour and is the biggest winner in the history of a golf career. He is nicknamed 18 years old. Nicklaus, known as the “Golden Bear”, also established a commemorative championship in his hometown of Ohio and participated in the design of a long string of golf courses. Throughout the summer, Nicklaus revealed that he and his wife had been tested for COVID-19 as early as the March pandemic.

In his statement of support for Trump on Wednesday, he wrote: “You may not like what our president said or the way we tweeted-trust me, I have told him!-but I learned to go beyond reality and focus For what he tried to accomplish.

“This is not a personality contest; this is about patriotism, policies and people who influence them. His love for the United States and its citizens, and his country first, has been loud and clear. What does he say to the United States It doesn’t matter. Me. What’s important is his behavior.”

Nicklaus urged any hesitant voters to vote for Trump, writing: “If we want to continue to have the opportunity to pursue the American dream, instead of developing into a socialist America and letting the government take control of our lives, Then I strongly recommend that you consider Donald J Trump in office for another four years.”

Soon after Nicklaus made the statement, avid golfer Trump thanked the Golden Bears for their support. “Jack, this is a great honor. Thank you!” Trump wrote in a tweet, which he pinned on the page.

President Trump and Nicklaus have participated in many golf tournaments. Tiger Woods is second only to Nicklaus in the historical professional rankings of golf, and joined Nicklaus and Trump in 2019.

Nicklaus was awarded the U.S. President’s highest honour Medal of Civilian Freedom by then President George W. Bush in 2005.
