On June 10 during a rally in Virginia, presidential candidate Donald Trump said that he wanted UFC president Dana White to speak for him at the Republican National Convention in July. White, who publicly supported Trump’s presidential run in December, was asked whether he’d speak on Trump’s behalf at the convention while appearing on the first episode of UFC Unfiltered.
“We’ll see,” White said. “He said it publicly. He hasn’t asked me to do it. He said it publicly.”
White is supposed to have dinner with Trump in New York within the next couple of weeks.
“We’ll see what happens,” said the UFC president. “He hasn’t asked me to. It’s one thing to say, hey, I want guys like Dana White. It’s one thing to say I want guys like Dana White as opposed to asking Dana White.”
“I’m not a big political guy,” added White. “I’m not a Republican, and I’m not a Democrat. I’m actually for the best guy.”
(White’s comments can be heard at the 34:50 mark of the podcast)
