Rent Is Too Damn High Party Founder Endorses Trump

Jimmy McMillan, famous for his line, “The rent is too damn high!” is now endorsing Donald Trump for president.

“He’s the only one who is supporting my brother veterans, which is good enough for me,” McMillan said of the Republican presidential front-runner.

“My main concern is helping my brother veterans get help,” he added. “America needs change.”

The Hill reports:

McMillan, who also ran for president in 2012, said he wanted Trump to be his vice president at the time.

“I’ve read up a lot on him,” he said.

McMillan rose to prominence in the 2010 New York gubernatorial race, where his unusual demeanor and statements drew attention at debates. Considered a protest candidate, he garnered just under 1 percent support.

His 2010 campaign focused on tenants’ rights. The Daily News noted the irony of McMillan supporting Trump, who charges rents as high as $6,000 a month at New York City’s Trump Tower.
