Jon Voight defends Trump against impeachment probe following Ukraine scandal: 'This is war against truth'
Voight had previously released a video on Twitter, calling Trump the "greatest president since Abraham Lincoln"
Academy Award-winning actor Jon Voight released a video on Twitter on Friday, September 27, defending President Donald Trump against the recently-opened impeachment proceedings.
This comes following the release of transcripts of his call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, where Trump repeatedly asked the latter to open investigations into his political rival Joe Biden and his son, Hunter.
"War, this is war against truth," says Voight as the video begins. He continues, "This is a war against the highest noble man who has defended our country and made us safe and great again. Let me stand with our president."
"Let us all stand with our President Trump in a time of such evil words trying for impeachment. This is a crime that the left are trying to force. This is a disgrace by such ignorant followers that have no truth of what truly has been brought back to our country," he adds.
Voight is one of the few conservative actors in Hollywood to speak out in support of Trump. Known for movies such as 'Heat', 'Mission Impossible', and 'Uprising', Voight had previously released a two-part video on Twitter, calling Trump the "greatest president of the country since Abraham Lincoln".
In the video on the impeachment proceedings, Voight continues, "We have gained greatness, we have gained jobs, we have gained more than any president has promised. This radical left are destructive."
"Their codes of what is supposed to be are corrupt with lies, deceits, and anger, and we ask why? We ask how can a human being have such anger towards the greatness of our country’s glory?"
He adds, "I'll tell you why: because for so long their anger has been growing, and with such deep pain, with no open heart, of loving and seeing the truth."
He continues, "The truth of what truly matters is the productivity of what was promised, and what we the American people of the United States were promised and have received. And what does the radical left do for such greatness?"
"They want to destroy it. They want civilization to be run like a corrupt ring. I say stand now with Trump, let truth prevail, and may God show all the truth. We are truly a nation stronger because of our president."
"The left are afraid, for their power is lessening with every deal that is accomplished by Donald Trump. In the name of God and his power for this nation, let us stay strong, and without such evil among us. God bless," he signs off.
Voight's daughter, actor, and activist, Angelina Jolie has previously spoken out against Trump. Jolie is a special envoy to the UN Refugee Agency and in February 2017, she penned an opinion article calling out Trump's travel ban.
