Chuck Norris, the famous martial artist, actor and former United States Air Force serviceman, has officially endorsed Donald Trump for President of the United States. In a penned op-ed, Norris explains why it’s important to vote for Trump.

“There is no doubt about it: A ‘no’ vote for Trump is a vote for Hillary. Any way you boil it down, that’s the end result,” Norris writes in the WND.com op-ed titled, “The People Have Spoken.”

Norris, who has starred in several movies and the popular TV show “Walker, Texas Ranger,” writes:

“This weekend, as I sat watching Dinesh D’Souza’s new documentary, ‘Hillary’s America: The Secret History of the Democratic Party,’ a must-see for all patriots across our country, I was thinking again about the monumental consequences of another Clinton presidency. I also thought: If reluctant Republicans and other freedom-loving citizens don’t rally now behind GOP nominee Donald Trump, we could elect Hillary by default, or by those who merely stay at home on Election Day. After Mike dropped out, I decided to wait until the people chose the candidate they wanted as their next president. Then, I would wholeheartedly support that candidate, which is now Donald Trump.”

The six-time undefeated world professional middleweight karate champion then recalled the first time he met Trump, 42 years ago at the world karate championships:

“When I met him, he asked me why I was retiring. I answered, ‘Donald, I’m 34years-old and I’ve held the world title for six years. I want to retire a winner.’ Donald thought for a second, and then said, ‘That makes sense to me.’ I liked him. He was very friendly and sincere.”
