In a conversation with podcaster Jason Whitlock, former Green Bay Packers quarterback Brett Favre threw his full support behind the former president, stating:

I think our country was in better shape with [Trump]. I think Donald was a non-political president, and I liked that about him. Was he perfect? Absolutely not. Am I perfect? Absolutely not. I’m flawed just like the rest of them. We’re all flawed. But, I really felt like he had our country in a better place and really cared about our people in our country. Black, white, Hispanic, Asian, you name it. I think if you were an American citizen, he cared about you, first and foremost. I don’t know if our current president has the same mentality, our regime. I’m not knocking anyone. That’s just how I felt.

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.
