It’s well established that UFC President Dana White has a longtime friendship with United States President Donald J. Trump. Previously, White appeared and spoke on behalf of Trump at the 2016 Republican National Convention before Trump was elected President of the United States. Also, President Trump attended UFC 244 last year in New York City. Earlier this week, White appeared at Trump’s campaign rally on Thursday (Feb. 20) in Colorado Springs. You can check out a video of his speech below.

When introducing Dana White, Trump called the UFC executive a “champion” and a “winner.” President Trump stated, “He’s been a friend of mine for a long time. He’s a tough cookie. He’s the kind of people that made our country great, truly. They made our country great.”

During the rally, White spoke on his longstanding relationship with Trump and praised his loyalty. He also encouraged the attendees to support Trump’s bid for reelection in 2020. White stated the following:

“I’m not a very political person. I’ll start there. But let me say this. There’s things that I can tell you about the President of the United States that you don’t hear on TV and you don’t hear from other people. Like he said, I’ve known this man for 20 years. We’ve actually become even closer since he’s become the President of the United States. When somebody becomes the President of the United States, you don’t ever expect to hear from them again. OK? And I understand it. It absolutely makes sense. This guy is so loyal and such a good friend, every time I see him — I saw him today, when I met him on Air Force 1, the first thing he said to me was, ‘How is your family?’ ‘How is your family?’ Good man, very loyal and a very good friend. I see a lot of things for Mr. Trump that the public doesn’t see. And the people who surround me everyday see how he treats me as a friend and other people he’s friends with. He’s a fighter. He loves this country. He’s doing great things for this country, and we got to win this election again ladies and gentlemen! Thank you!”
