Dana White is still in Donald Trump’s corner.
The UFC president and real estate mogul turned US president have been part of a mutual admiration society since 2001 when “The Donald” allowed the then-controversial promotion to hold events at the Trump Taj Mahal in Atlantic City, a pretty big step up from auditoriums in Louisiana and Iowa the UFC had been stuck in at the time. When Trump ran for president in 2016, White was there for his boy, stumping for him at the Republican National Convention.
“Donald championed the UFC before it was popular, before it grew into a successful business and I will always be grateful—so grateful—to him for standing with us in those early days,” White said. “So tonight, I stand with Donald Trump.”
And now he’ll be making another appearance for the 2020 edition.
According to White House reporter Seung Min Kim, White will be appearing on Thursday, August 27th, the closing night of the convention.

Due to Coronavirus still being completely out of control across America, the convention will be a largely virtual affair similar to last week’s Democratic National Convention.
We hope the world is still ‘normal’ enough though that White once again gets a little political oppo research done on him that the Fake News will then use to try and disparage his fine character. Our favorite following his 2016 RNC appearance:
And this one, which questioned whether Dana White even cared about politics at all (or anything other than his and others ‘nuts’) :
All these articles and the best dirt they could find is some Twitter trash talk about deez nuts? Now that really makes me question the quality of the reporting going on these days.
