“I think he’d make a great president because he’s not a politician and that’s what we see this surge of voters gathering around in support of him, it’s because he’s telling it like it is,” Baldwin told the FOX Business Network’s Stuart Varney on Tuesday. “He doesn’t always say it perfect, but he’s real, and honest, and he’s what America’s looking for right now.”
A week before the first Republican Presidential debate, Baldwin publically announced his support for Trump, even saying he "loves Mr. Trump."
Baldwin said he hopes to keep Hillary Clinton out of the Oval Office, but that’s not the only reason he’s backing the billionaire real estate mogul.
“I think Mr. Trump is a very smart man,” Baldwin said. “You cannot achieve the level of success that he has without being smart and surrounding yourself with the people who can support that and help you get there. I think as President of the United States he would do the very same think, unequivocally.”
Baldwin said he has fun defending Trump, and while he doesn’t dispute with his celebrity brother, Alec Baldwin, he and his older brother, William Baldwin, don’t see eye-to-eye politically.
When asked why his views differ, Baldwin lightheartedly poked at his brothers’ sensibility.
“I’m the youngest Baldwin brother, but I’m married the longest, so to answer your question, I may not be the smartest but it seems as though I may be the one with the most common sense.”
