Famed Indiana basketball coach Bobby Knight endorses Donald Trump at a Wednesday night campaign rally in Indianapolis. Trump introduced Knight and returned to the stage when he finished his remarks.
"You folks are taking a look at the most prepared man in history to step in as president of the United States, that man right there," Knight said of Trump. "There has never been a presidential candidate prepared to the length that this man is."
"I'm not here to represent the Republican Party or any organization that deals with politics. I think the most important thing in the world is that we vote for the best man for the job, and you have already met him," Knight added.
"You folks have a great opportunity here," Knight told the crowd. "You folks voting for Donald Trump are throwing him over the top. If you will do this, you will be having our government take its first step toward what all of us want America to be like."
Knight also likened Trump voters to the Founding Fathers.
"There's never been a more honest politician than Donald Trump," Knight said. "After you've seen and listened to him, I think you'll be in a hurry to get out there and vote for him. I want you to know you have this great opportunity to push him over the top as soon as you can and putting him in the best position that this country has been in getting going where we all want to be. You people, if you will do that, if you will get us started on the road, I'm going to tell you what's going to happen to you. They're going to take all you people, what you did to give us Donald Trump, they're going to take all you people and put you right next to our founding fathers in George Washington."
"That's what the hell they're going to do with you people," Knight said.
