Brett Favre says he will vote for Donald Trump, expected to appear with president at Green Bay rally
By October 30, 2020
Brett Favre became the latest ex-athlete to declare his support for President Donald Trump, tweeting that the Republican nominee will have his vote on Friday.
The former NFL quarterback and three-time MVP voiced his backing days after ex-golfer Jack Nicklaus shared a lengthy endorsement.
“My Vote is for what makes this country great, freedom of speech & religion, 2nd Amnd, hard working tax paying citizens, police & military,” Favre’s tweet began. “In this election, we have freedom of choice, which all should respect. For me & these principles, my Vote is for @RealDonaldTrump. #Vote”
Trump’s campaign and the president thanked Favre for his support on Twitter. Additionally, Fox News reported Favre is expected to join Trump at a Green Bay rally Friday afternoon. Favre was quarterback of the Green Bay Packers for more than a decade.
My Vote is for what makes this country great, freedom of speech & religion, 2nd Amnd, hard working tax paying citizens, police & military. In this election, we have freedom of choice, which all should respect. For me & these principles, my Vote is for @RealDonaldTrump. #Vote ☑️🇺🇸

Trump and Favre golfed together over the summer. In August, Favre told USA TODAY Sports he wasn’t sure there was a right answer in regards to kneeling as a form of peaceful protest during the national anthem.
“I know from being in an NFL locker room for 20 years, regardless of race, background, money you grew up with, we were all brothers it didn’t matter,” said Favre, who was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 2016. “Guys got along great. Will that be the same (with kneeling scenario)? I don’t know. If one guy chooses to stand for his cause and another guy chooses to kneel for his cause, is one right and the other wrong? I don’t believe so. We tend to be fixed on highs.
“I don’t know what it’s like to be Black. It’s not for me to say what’s right and what’s wrong. I do know we should all be treated equal. If you can’t do that, you shouldn’t be in America.”
