Actor Jon Voight is encouraging Americans to rally around Donald Trump, calling him the “greatest president since Abraham Lincoln.”

In two short videos posted to his Twitter account on Friday, Voight said he was speaking to “acknowledge the truth.”

“I’m here today to tell you, my fellow Americans, that our country is stronger, safer and with more jobs because our president has made his every move correct.”

Voight’s message received both ridicule and support from users of the social media platform.
