Democrats and Republicans recently held their national conventions to formally announce their respective presidential candidates.
The election campaign has been a polarized affair so far, mostly due to the rhetoric of Donald Trump. Several celebrities have hit out the billionaire businessman for his stand on immigration and Muslims.
Poker legend Daniel Negreanu too has previously spoken out against Trump. The Canadian became a US citizen earlier in the year and is now eligible to vote in the upcoming election.
Negreanu praised Michelle Obama after her speech at the DNC in Philadelphia, writing “AMAZING WOMAN AND ROLE MODEL FOR OUR KIDS!!!!”
He also stated that Hillary Clinton’s was a “well delivered speech full of ideas, plans, and solutions.”
He attacked Trump, terming him an “awful human being” and a “thin skinned” sociopath who was “dangerous to America”.
Trump supporter came after Negreanu after his comments about the Republican candidate.
Interestingly, some poker players like Mike Matusow, Matt Glantz, and Doyle Brunson are backing Trump.
Negreanu had a clear message to those that disagreed with him on social micro-blogging site Twitter. Unfollow me, he wrote to them.
Responding to Negreanu, poker legend Brinson, said: “I almost pulled the [unfollow] trigger but decided it would be stupid because we disagree over politics. America will decide.”
