Voight, 80, posted two videos on Twitter on Friday, both with the caption, “To my fellow Americans.” The clips are a glowing tribute to Trump as well as a call for increased unity in the Republican Party.

“This job is not easy for he’s battling the left and their absurd words of destruction,” said Voight in the videos. “Our nation has been built on the solid ground from our forefathers, and there is a moral code of duty that has been passed on from President Lincoln.”

Voight told Twitter users that he wished to “acknowledge the truth,” saying that “’our country is stronger, safer, and with more jobs because President Trump ‘has made every move correct.”

“Don’t be fooled by the political left because we are the people of this nation that is witnessing triumph,” he continued.

“So let us stand with our president, let us stand for this truth that President Trump is the greatest president since Abraham Lincoln. God bless America.”

The videos are not the first instance where Voight made a connection between Trump and Lincoln. According to a report by the Daily Mail, the Oscar winner spoke on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial at an inauguration rally in January 2017 and stated, “God answered all our prayers” when Trump won the White House.

“We will be part of history, all of us,” Voight told the crowd.

“And President Lincoln, who sits here with us,” he added, “I’m sure is smiling knowing America will be saved by an honest and good man who will work for all the people, no matter their creed or color.”
