Since announcing his bid for the presidency in June 2015, Donald Trump has steadily accrued (and lost) a number of endorsements from celebrities — some of whom are more notable than others.
In the aftermath of his lewd comments from a 2005 “Access Hollywood” video that leaked in October, Trump lost the support of a few entertainers, including singer Aaron Carter, rapper Azealia Banks, and actress Kirstie Alley.
With Election Day at hand, however, the Republican presidential nominee has managed to retain a variety of endorsements in the entertainment world — from former sports stars like Mike Tyson and Dennis Rodman to major musicians like Kid Rock and Ted Nugent, the latter of whom performed for Trump at one of his final campaign stops on Sunday.
