Packers legend Brett Favre tweeted out on Friday morning that he is voting for President Trump. He listed all of the reasons why he's come to that decision.
My Vote is for what makes this country great, freedom of speech & religion, 2nd Amnd, hard working tax paying citizens, police & military. In this election, we have freedom of choice, which all should respect. For me & these principles, my Vote is for @RealDonaldTrump. #Vote ☑🇺🇸

Favre isn't the only former NFL quarterback to endorse Trump. Jay Cutler also revealed this week that he supports Trump's reelection.
Favre's support comes after he asked Trump a question about sports and politics during a town hall earlier this month.

Favre saying he's voting for Trump isn't all that surprising. The two are friendly and have done a little golfing together.
Going public with that support is more surprising. Support for Trump isn't popular among athletes and celebrities these days.
