    Michigan native Kid Rock isn't one to shy away from politics. He supported Mitt Romney's campaign in 2012, and Rock recently voiced his approval of Trump as a political outsider.

    Lethal Weapon actor Gary Busey may have been fired by Trump on The Celebrity Apprentice, but that hasn't stopped him from voicing his support for his former TV boss. "I know him personally. I know him professionally. He's a great guy. He's sharp. He's fast," the actor told Fox News in October. "He can change the country after the last eight years."

    Former MySpace celebrity and reality star Tila Tequila announced her support for Donald Trump in October through a YouTube video. Her reasoning? "I actually started looking into things that he's all about and I definitely think that he should definitely be our new president because, as you all know, I am very anti-vax and Donald Trump is also anti-vax," she said.

    Duck Dynasty star Willie Robertson has endorsed Donald Trump for president after his father Phil had voiced his support for Ted Cruz.

    Rapper Azealia Banks is well-known for her Twitter frenzies, so her confusing tweets about Donald Trump, in a way, make some sense. She believes Trump can "bust up big business," yet she's determined that none of the candidates are morally sound. She signed off, "In conclusion, I think Donald Trump is evil like America is evil and in order for America to keep up with itself it needs him," making her endorsement the strangest one yet.

  • Ann Coulter

    Just as ultra-conservative pundit Ann Coulter is a fan of Donald Trump, he too is a fan of hers. In fact, Trump called Coulter's most recent book, Adios, America: The Left’s Plan to Turn Our Country into a Third World Hellhole, a "great read." With similar views on immigration laws and foreign policy, it's no surprise that Coulter has become one of Trump's most dedicated supporters, even introducing him at campaign rallies.

  • Hulk Hogan

    While Hulk Hogan may not have exactly expressed his political support for any candidate, Hogan did tell TMZ that he would want to be Donald Trump's running mate—so that has to count for something.

    The Usual Suspects actor Stephen Baldwin (who also appeared on Celebrity Apprentice) supports Donald Trump particularly because he is not a politician by trade.

  • Jon Voight

He issued an exclusive statement to Breitbart News, saying, "I, Jon Voight, can say, without hesitation, that Donald is funny, playful, and colorful, but most of all, he is honest. When he decided to run for president, I know he did it with a true conviction to bring this country back to prosperity. He is the only one who can do it. No frills, no fuss, only candid truths."

    Former heavyweight boxer Mike Tyson and Donald Trump have been friends since the '80s, when he had many boxing matches in Trump Hotels. His endorsement, then, comes as no surprise. When asked about Trump's proposed ban on Muslim immigration, Tyson (who converted to Islam) says that he doubts the ban could even happen. "He’s just not gonna do that. Congress just won’t do that. But that doesn’t mean he can’t be president, you know what I mean?" he told The Daily Beast.

    Yet another former Celebrity Apprentice competitor, ex-Yankee Johnny Damon has expressed his support for Trump, particularly for his immigration proposals. “Everyone is calling him a racist. He just wants people to come into this country legally and fill out the proper paperwork. That’s how I’m viewing it,” he told the New York Daily News. "We’re worrying too much about what’s going on in Cuba, the Middle East. We have enough to worry about here."

  • Loretta Lynn
