Herschel Walker might have taken one too many hits during his NFL career.
While Donald Trump's proposal to ban Muslims from entering the United States might have even rubbed some of his own supporters the wrong way, the retired NFL running back and former Celebrity Apprentice is standing by the controversial 2016 presidential hopeful.
"Look, we can't build a wall and not let people in the country," Walker told TMZ Sports. "But we do have to get this country safe. We have to quit being politically correct."
In the process, Walker took a shot at President Obama.
"We have to do what's right to save America... I guarantee you [Trump] would do better than a lot of people in office now," he added. "That I can tell you for a fact."
And Walker wasn't done yet: "Donald has said what he's said, but his numbers haven't gone down. That's a sign he is saying the things that people think, but are afraid to say themselves. Donald is saying what people want to hear."
In addition to Walker, UFC President Dana White also pledged his support towards Trump's presidential run last week.
