EX-NFL Player: I’ve Had Speaking Engagements Cancelled Because I Support Trump

Retired football player Herschel Walker told TMZ Sports today that his public support of Trump has lost him speaking engagements.

Walker was on Celebrity Apprentice years ago and has known Trump for a while, and the two of them are apparently still friendly.

He said, “I’ve had a lot of people cancel speech engagements with me ’cause of my relationship with Donald.”

Walker also insisted that “Donald Trump is not a racist… just because you build a wall doesn’t mean he’s a racist.”
