Trump Gets Unlikely Vouch From ESPN

ESPN host Stephen A. Smith defended former President Donald Trump’s character in an interview, although he added he wouldn’t vote for him in 2024.

Smith, the star of ESPN’s sports talk program “First Take”, made the comments while speaking at the Semafor Media Summit.

He shared that the and Trump had a good relationship in the past and enjoyed discussing sports at Trump’s events, which Smith attended.

“I knew Trump before he ran for the presidency. I thoroughly enjoyed talking to him. He was a huge sports fan. He used to throw a lot of events at … you know, at his casinos and stuff like that, and I genuinely liked them,” Smith said at the Summit.

Trump has a long history of involvement with sports. His Atlantic City Plaza was a popular destination for prizefights and he owns 17 golf clubs throughout the world.

“I didn’t know who this guy was running for president. I think he’s changed, but I will tell you this: I think when people call him racist and stuff like that, I’ve never thought of Trump that way. It’s not, he’s not against Black people,” Smith added. “He’s against old things not named Trump.”

Smith said he holds conservative views and could vote for a Republican for president, but he’s “beyond voting for Trump” at this point.

He said rather than Trump’s politics, it’s his “statesmanship” that turned Smith off. He said the president should be someone who brings the country together instead of dividing it further.

Smith has previously lambasted the idea of progressives in power and is critical of Democrats’ policies on crime.

“There is no question that we should be against an extremely progressive agenda that is calling for people to be released from prison on multiple occasions, that’s ignoring a lot of crime that’s taking place in the streets,” he said to Fox News.


  1. “He said the president should be someone who brings the country together instead of dividing it further”.
    Oh Really? What is mr biden doing right now.

  2. “He said the president should be someone who brings the country together instead of dividing it further.”……………..Really? I think he is trying to bring the country together by exposing the crooked politicians who have squandered the tax payer money for way to long. He is trying to wake people up to this fact. It is the peoples problem that they are being divided by the left wing media. Wake up and listen to what he is saying and don’t let the harsh language turn you off to him. He is not a Republican, Democrat, or Independent. He isn’t even a politician. He is a patriot protecting the Constitution with a fresh breath of air that has never been heard in the history of politics.

  3. Stephen Smith is ignorant of the facts regardless Trump. He did not divide anyone. Obama, Biden. And the left have divided the country. They have pushed hate and division. Trump loves this country and the people. He doesn’t have to put up with all the crap they put him through, but he does. He was trying to and was succeeding in reversing the communism that is being pushed. The left made sure he didn’t get elected. They are afraid of Trump. They was communism. The left are a bunch of sick evil pieces of crap. We need Trump back asap.

  4. Steven A Smith, Does the A stand for a– h— ? If you don’t vote for Trump, you are the looser ! He is the best president we ever had or ever will have ! I guess you would rather vote for the liberals since they are destroying this once great country! Trump loves this country & its people & that’s why he puts up with all this crap .You need to wake up & get over your self rightousness & vote for Trump ! One vote can make a difference. Trump would be president if the senile idiot fake president hadn’t rigged the election !
