“Does America want to have a president who FOLLOWS or someone who leads?” the 1990s heartthrob tweeted Saturday. “I vote for @realdonaldtrump.”

Carter’s tweet was in response to a Trump tweeting about how he is self-funding his campaign and is therefore “not controlled by the lobbyists and special interests.” 

After tweeting his support for the Republican front-runner, Carter faced a stream of criticism from his followers. 

“Losing fans gaining fans all good so what happens when Donald becomes president relax people,” Carter responded.
