The former UFC light heavyweight champion spoke with In The Loop on SportsRadio 610 on Friday and gave his opinion on the presidential race, and is giving his support to Donald Trump.
CBS Houston reported on Ortiz’s political views.
“FOR A PERSON TO BECOME A BILLIONAIRE, TO BE FLAT BROKE BANKRUPT,” ORTIZ SAID, “TO REBUILD HIMSELF TO BE A BILLIONAIRE AND NOW TO BECOME ALMOST THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES, IT’S AMAZING. HE’S A HARD WORKER. HE CAN MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN. THAT’S MY VOTE FOR HIM”
Ortiz admits that the idea of Trump being the President of the United States had to grow on him.
“I’M A TRUMP GUY. I WASN’T IN THE BEGINNING, OF COURSE, I’M MEXICAN WHEN HE SAID WE NEED TO TAKE ALL THE MEXICANS OUT OF THE UNITED STATES, WELL GOOD LUCK ON THAT ONE. THEY’LL FIND A WAY TO GET BACK HERE ANYWAYS. BUT IN THE LONG RUN, I THINK HE WANTS TO BRING MONEY BACK TO OUR COUNTRY AND WITH THE DEBT THAT WE ARE, I THINK HE HAS AN OPPORTUNITY TO DO THAT.”
“IT’S JUST NOT MEXICANS THAT WE HAVE WORRY ABOUT,” ORTIZ RESPONDED TO LOPEZ ABOUT THE BORDER ISSUE IN AMERICA. “IT’S THE MUSLIMS, IT’S THE RADICALS, THAT COME IN THAT HAVE THE OPPORTUNITY TO COME IN FROM [MEXICO] TO OUR COUNTRY AND DO THE THING WITH TERRORISM THAT’S HINDERING OUR COUNTRY. WE SHOULDN’T BE AFRAID TO WALK AROUND AND LOOK OVER OUR SHOULDERS AND SOME GUY HAS A BOMB IN HIS POCKET OR SOMETHING STUPID.
“I THINK IT NEEDS TO BE TAKEN CARE OF AND THE PRESIDENT WE HAVE NOW DID NOT DO THAT JOB. I THINK, IN MY OPINION, THAT TRUMP CAN HELP A LOT BETTER.”
