Trump Retweets Actor Jon Voight's Bizarre Religious Video in Support of President's 2020 Campaign

President Donald Trump retweeted a bizarre religious video posted by actor Jon Voight in support of his 2020 presidential campaign.

"Faith and Trust," the 81-year-old conservative actor wrote alongside a 95-second video that mentioned God multiple times on his Twitter account earlier this week.

In the clip, which invoked religion throughout, Oscar-winning Voight urged Americans to re-elect Trump in November, claiming "left-wing behavior" was destroying the nation. But Trump, Voight maintained, will "protect" America and "keep her flame alive."

Trump retweeted the video in the early hours of Sunday morning, adding: "Thank you Jon!"

"America, follow this truth, and no one will knock you down. Begone with noise that has no matter. Jericho will bring forth a testament that reminds them to drop their swords and show who's the hero," Voight said.

Thank you Jon!

"So our gifted America can sing her song was pride and honor, and no man or woman will destroy God's creation, for this land is our life and our greatest heroes protected this homeland with blood sweat and tears, with hands that built this planet of her greatness, with her integrity, with her knowledge.

"And to have left wing behavior, left wing danger, destroying this nation, He will not allow, because my fellow Americans, God the Almighty gave all this to us, so we as a civilization with all our greatness must give back and we shall protect the USA with God, and He who understands this Liberty must protect as well.

"Let us all protect this beautiful nation. Let us all give back. We must not take for granted this breath we breathe, because without God's love, we would not be here. So bring back faith and trust."

He then added: "And don't forget that this November, we must vote to help keep President Trump in office, so he can carry the torch for this land of the free, and my dear friends, Donald Trump will keep her flame alive and he will protect the United States of America."

Trump on Sunday also shared another video Voight posted in June in which he urged Americans to have their "ballots ready" to vote for Trump, who he said was the only man "who will save this nation's pride."

The retweets prompted Voight's name to trend on Twitter early Sunday, with some claiming Trump was once again bringing out his "star power" out of desperation.

"Was going to tweet that it was just about time for Trump to pull out his star power: James Woods, Chuck Woolery, Ted Nugent & Scott Baio... & here comes Jon Voight!" Journalist Jim Heath tweeted.

Donald Trump has three levels of desperation:

- Panic

- Total panic

- “Start retweeting incoherent videos of Jon Voight” level panic

I spent a good amount of time with Jon Voight. He was a kind man and especially nice to me.

I wish him well.

But I cannot sanction his support of Trump who is a barely sentient bag of moldy racist oranges.

"Donald Trump has three levels of desperation," Palmer Report tweeted, adding it was "panic," "total panic" and "start retweeting incoherent videos of Jon Voight" level panic."

Others criticized Voight's support of Trump, with actor Elias Toufexis writing: "I spent a good amount of time with Jon Voight. He was a kind man and especially nice to me. I wish him well. But I cannot sanction his support of Trump who is a barely sentient bag of moldy racist oranges."

It comes after Newsweek reported the release of a new, sympathetic documentary about former Fox head Roger Ailes, which was narrated by Voight and included original interviews with Trump.
