Donald Trump's presidency was polarizing to say the least, and while many of his celebrity supporters jumped ship following the results of the 2020 presidential election he's still backed by plenty of famous faces.

Celebrities like musician and conservative activist Ted Nugent, whose passionate rhetoric has struck a chord with many Trump supporters has stuck by 45's side, just like Kid Rock, whose unapologetic endorsement of Trump has garnered significant attention in the media. But it's not just rockstars backing the former president. He has Super Bowl winners, award winning rappers, comedians, and reality TV stars by his side.

Join us as we explore the intriguing realm of celebrity endorsements and their role in shaping the political landscape. As the 2024 presidential election draws closer we'll continue to update these influential personalities and their alignment with Trump's campaign.

This is a bit of an odd one but it still sort of counts as a celebrity endorsing the former president. In 2022, Ye (formerly Kanye West) announced that he's once again throwing his hat into the presidential election ring in 2024, tweeting that he'd like Trump to be his VP after visiting him at Mar-a-Lago. He wrote:

First time at Mar-a-Lago. Rain and traffic. Can’t believe I kept President Trump waiting. And I had on jeans. What you guys think [Trump’s] response was when I asked him to be my running mate in 2024?

It's a kind of support, don't you think?

Even before officially announcing in November 2022, Florida lawmaker Matt Gaetz has consistently shown support for Trump's potential return to politics. In an op-ed for the Daily Caller in November Gaetz wrote:

There's so many more accomplishments left for us to achieve if we elect Donald Trump back to the White House.

That's a clear signal as to where his vote lies.
