Retired Yankees player Mariano Rivera endorses his ‘friend’ Trump for 2024

For­mer Pres­i­dent Don­ald Trump has net­ted anoth­er endorse­ment ahead of the 2024 pres­i­den­tial elec­tion, this time from retired New York Yan­kees play­er Mar­i­ano Rivera.
The for­mer base­ball play­er was asked about the cur­rent state of the world and if he believed that Trump should return to the White House in a recent inter­view with radio host Sid Rosen­berg. Rivera agreed that Trump should be pres­i­dent again, argu­ing that he is not going “for the Right or the Left” but instead would vote for who­ev­er is doing “the right thing for the coun­try.”
“Pres­i­dent Trump, he’s my friend,” Rivera said. “I can’t deny that. I will tell that to any­one. Before he was the pres­i­dent, he was my friend. Because of that, I’m going to vote for him.”
