(CNN)Oscar-winning actor Jon Voight has posted a pair of videos to Twitter in which he affirms his long-held support for President Donald Trump and calls him “the greatest president since Abraham Lincoln.”
“This job is not easy, for he’s battling the left and their absurd words of destruction,” Voight, 80, said. “Our nation has been built on the solid ground from our forefathers, and there is a moral code of duty that has been passed on from President Lincoln.”
The videos, which together run a little longer than a minute, were posted Friday night to Voight’s account.
Voight invoked Lincoln regarding Trump in 2017
It wasn’t the first time Voight has publicly linked Trump and Lincoln, the nation’s 16th president, who issued the Emancipation Proclamation and ended the Civil War.
Speaking at an inauguration rally in January 2017 on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial in Washington, Voight said, “God answered all our prayers” by granting Trump the White House, The Hill reported.
“And President Lincoln, who sits here with us,” Voight said, “I’m sure is smiling knowing America will be saved by an honest and good man who will work for all the people, no matter their creed or color.”
