Actor John Voight appeared on the Fox News Channel’s morning show (“Fox and Friends”) on Saturday morning (September 17, 2016) to talk about “The Deplorables” — that one -half of all Trump supporters that Hillary Clinton has dismissed as “a basket of deplorables.”
He said today, “Many of the deplorables are wonderful, hard working Americans, by the way. They told me today that they want to open new businesses but the government has dis-incentivized entrepreneurial new business people with regulations, taxes, cost, bureaucracy and red tape. If you want to grow the economy, you have to incentivize people and not dis-incentivized the entrepreneurial spirit. It’s that simple.

The 77-year-old actor — who endorsed the Republican nominee in March — was asked what Trump is really like during an interview this week.
“I’ve been a Trump supporter for quite a long time,” Voight said during an interview on Fox Business. “He’s a problem solver and he’s used to taking on impossible jobs. I’ve seen him a couple of times on the road, and he’s got a tremendous amount of energy. I see him at the end of a day when he jumps through three states, and at 11 o’clock at night he looks exactly the same he started at 7 o’clock in the morning.”
“I don’t think there’s any place Donald Trump can’t win if he gets the team focused.” (RELATED: Jon Voight Endorses Trump: ‘He Will Not Let Us Down’)
