President-elect Donald Trump made some pretty huge announcements about his transition team.
As The Political Insider reports, Trump picked conservative Hollywood icon Sylvester Stallone to “make art great again!”
The famous actor who became Rambo and Rocky Balboa is the next Chairman of the National Endowment for the Arts. This agency supports worthy, aspiring artists and creative projects, with an annual budget of $146,200,000.
Once Trump offers Stallone this job, the Congress will have to vote, and yes, the actor enjos their full support.
While Stallone is positively disposed to the idea, It is not known whether Stallone will accept the gig. He has spoken previously of his admiration for Trump – and of his interest in entering politics.
‘It’s been widely and wrongly assumed that a Trump Presidency will be hostile to the arts,’ a source told DailyMail.com. ‘But Mr Trump feels this sort of A-list appointment is precisely the shot in the arm that the industry needs.’
Stallone, 70 – best known for his roles as John Rambo and Rocky Balboa – backed John McCain’s presidential run in 2008 but he is not a registered Republican.
However the movie action man described Trump as ‘bigger than life’ in a recent interview, though he stopped short of endorsing his Presidency. ‘I love Donald Trump,’ he told Variety Magazine. ‘He’s a great Dickensian character. You know what I mean? ‘There are certain people like Arnold, Babe Ruth, that are bigger than life. But I don’t know how that translates to running the world.’
Do you think Sylvester Stallone is fit for this position? Will he accept it? what do you think of celebrities who get involved in administration?
