"You might not like the way our President says or tweets some things - and trust me, I have told him that!" Nicklaus said in the post. "I have learned to look past that and focused on what he's tried to accomplish. This is not a personality contest; it's about patriotism, policies and the people they impact. His love for America and its citizens and putting his country first has come through loud and clear. How he has said it has not been important to me. What has been important are his actions."

"I am certain many of you have not made up your minds," Nicklaus stated. "But if we want to continue to have the opportunity to pursue the American Dream, and not evolve into the socialist America and have the government run your life, then I strongly recommend you considered Donald J. Trump for another 4 years. I have certainly have and have already cast my vote."

Trump and Democratic candidate Joe Biden are making one last push before Election Day. According to, Biden is projected to win the Presidential race with 290 electoral votes.
