Guitar great Ace Frehley has stunned fans by saluting America’s divisive leader Donald Trump, calling the property tycoon-turned-politician “the strongest leader that we’ve got.”
While many U.S. musicians are making it clear they won’t be voting for Trump in November, the former KISS star insists he has no choice but to back the Republican, because he doesn’t see an alternative.
Appearing on The Cassius Morris Show, Ace revealed he tries to stay away from politics, but revealed, “I will say I’m a Trump supporter.
“All the politicians have had skeletons in the closet, but I think Trump is the strongest leader that we’ve got on the table.”
Frehley previously urged fans to get behind Trump, stating, “Whether you love him or hate him, if you’re an American and you’re a patriot, you should get behind your President.”
His latest comments come after KISS frontman Paul Stanley hit out at Trump last month for suggesting his opponents may rig November’s election to secure victory.
“REGARDLESS of who you support, it is incendiary & abhorrent for ANY candidate to say ‘If I lose, the election is rigged’,” he wrote. “It’s an insult to those who have fought for the free, safe elections we have and dangerously implies that citizens who don’t share your views are the enemy.”
