Herschel Walker and Donald Trump have history, so the bond isn’t shocking. I just didn’t expect the famed running back to say it out loud.

Walker played on Donald Trump’s now-extinct USFL team, and now he says the top GOP candidate is his No. 1 choice for president.

There’s not a doubt in my mind right now he is my frontrunner,” Walker said. “I’m not going to say anything negative about him because it’s not true.”

Walker says he isn’t in favor of Trump’s plan of deporting 11 million illegal immigrants, but agrees with Trump’s idea of building a wall between Mexico and the U.S.

Walker signed a contract with the New Jersey Generals after winning the Heisman Trophy in 1983 shortly before the team was sold to Trump.
