‘See? I’m getting emotional’: Jon Voight chokes up recalling one of Trump’s good deeds during interview

Actor Jon Voight became emotional during a recent interview with former President Donald Trump when he recalled that Trump had offered to pay for a golf course employee’s cancer treatments.

Voight did most of the talking throughout the 20-minute documentary piece filmed for Newsmax TV, and he reminded Trump of what he felt were the former president’s greatest accomplishments thus far; namely, the historic Middle East peace agreements known as the Abraham Accords which the left-wing media refuse to appropriately recognize because they were authored and achieved under Trump.

At one point, the Academy Award-winning actor for “Coming Home” appeared to tear up when he recalled the generosity the former president had shown to a golf course employee named Sally who had evidently been diagnosed with cancer.

“You went in and said yeah, ‘she’s -have her come see me,’ and you went to one of the offices, and she came in, and you said, ‘I hear you having a little bit of a difficulty.’ And she said ‘Well, I have some cancer,”‘ Voight related he had heard of the instance.

“See? I’m getting emotional. This is from the – you keep saying ‘The Champ,’ can’t watch ‘The Champ’ without crying. Well, I can’t go through this story without crying,” he said to Trump.

“And you said ‘let me take care of the – take care of the, whatever it’s gonna cost.'”

Voight added, “That’s who you are. Anyway, so I’m just very grateful for your presence in so many areas.”

Trump replied, “Well first off all I think it’s so nice the way you expressed that. And even the slight little tears that come, you’re just a fantastic person,” he told Voight.

The star of “Midnight Cowboy,” “Deliverance,” and a supporting cast member of Michael Mann’s 1995 masterpiece, “Heat,” alongside one of America’s most talented actors and biggest liberal jackasses, Robert De Niro, predicted a turnaround of sorts for the country.

This prompted Trump to ask, “Is that a hope, your instinct? I mean, why do you believe that?”

“If some very big things don’t happen very quickly, there can’t be a turnaround,” Trump foretold.

Voight responded quickly, “People say to me to me all the time, will Donald Trump run? I say he certainly will run, but we can’t wait too long.”

In the opening of the mini-documentary, Voight praised the Abraham Accords; a normalization agreement between Israel and the United Arab Emirates which quickly grew to include the country of Bahrain. Formally, the Abraham Accords – negotiated during the Trump presidency by his son-in-law and senior advisor, Jared Kushner  – are described as follows:

Abraham Accords Peace Agreement: Treaty of Peace, Diplomatic Relations and Full Normalization Between the United Arab Emirates and the State of Israel and Abraham Accords: Declaration of Peace, Cooperation, and Constructive Diplomatic and Friendly Relations.

Voight began, “In 2020, the most significant advancement toward peace in the Middle East was formed.”

“It was an agreement that created relationships in a manner that had never been attempted before and it has achieved results that have exceeded all expectations. And chances are, you’ve never even heard of it,” he said.

At another point in the interview, the former president reiterated his support for Israel.

“When I became president and even before I became president, I spoke very favorably about Israel.”

“Golan Heights, as an example,” he added; a locale which many countries outside of the United States believe to be Syrian territory occupied by Israel.

“I’ve always had a good relationship with people of the Jewish faith. I’ve gotten along with them very well,” Trump said.

In closing the interview, the former president seemed hopeful yet serious.

“I want to thank you and we love the country, the country is in trouble. It’s got to be solved fairly quickly,” Trump said.

“There is no choice but to solve the problem, but it’s a big problem. It’s a big problem. And I hope it continues forward, and we love Israel, and we hope everything’s going to be okay.”

Trump concluded, “A lot of good moves have to be made or it’s not going to be okay.”
