Trump’s attendance comes months after the Irish mixed martial artist, boxer and businessman publicly voiced his support for Trump.
The day after President Biden took office, McGregor tweeted praise for Trump.
“Phenomenal President,” the fighter wrote. “Quite possibly the USA Goat [greatest of all time]. Most certainly one of them anyway, as he sits atop the shoulders of many amazing giants that came before him.”
Phenomenal President. Quite possibly the USA . Most certainly one of them anyway, as he sits atop the shoulders of many amazing giants that came before him. No easy feet.
Early stages of term also.
Congrats and Happy Martin Luther King Jr. day America ❤️
