Bobby Orr Endorses Trump

October 30, 2020

Boston Bruins legend Bobby Orr put out an endorsement for the sitting president in a full-page ad in The Union Leader of Manchester, New Hampshire on Friday.

The 72-year-old National Hockey League legend included a picture of himself and President Donald Trump in the ad. 

Here is what Orr’s ad in the issue dated Friday, October 30 says:

Everyone has an opinion as our upcoming Presidential election approaches, and I am no different. When I look art America during these turbulent times, I keep trying to separate style from substance, fact from fiction.

This much I know. Our current president has had to operate under extremely difficult conditions over the past several years. In addition, no leader anywhere signed up with the idea that dealing with a worldwide pandemic would be part of their mandate. The attacks on our President have been unrelenting since the day he took office. Despite that, President Trump has delivered for all the American people, regardless of race, gender, or station in life.

That’s the kind of teammate I want.

Perhaps you do not like his tweets or how the President says things sometimes, and that is your right. But remember this is not a personality contest; it’s about policies and the people those policies assist.

I have never done anything like this before, but I am greatly concerned for the country in which I have raised my family – a country I have grown to love deeply. I want my grandchildren to know the America I know, a place of patriotism and opportunity.

Some of you may still be undecided at this point. Your vote for President Trump would help keep America moving forward in the years ahead.

So please, join Peggy and me in supporting President Donald J. Trump for re-election in this important election.
