Jon Voight is one of the good guys in Hollywood.
He supported Trump early in the campaign. He appeared at campaign events. He supported Trump in TV interviews.
And today, he spoke at the Inaugural Concert on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial.
In his speech, Jon Voight pointed out what mattered most in the campaign of 2016: Prayer.

From the video:
Jon Voight: “And yes, God answered all our prayers. Because here it is: We will be part of history. All of us. And President Lincoln, who sits here with us, 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.”
He’s not the only one to cite prayer as important for Trump’s victory.
Here’s Martin Luther King, Jr.’s niece Alveda King saying something very similar.
Watch (via Fox Business ):
From the video:
Alveda King: “I want Mr. Trump to remember: Many people who voted for him took a long time praying for him. And if he could take some of that divine guidance, that’s going to help him out. We do need unity. And from my perspective as a minister myself, God has not forgotten America. So if Mr. Trump can remember that, I believe that he can take some positive steps toward unity . . .
I know for sure that people were praying much more than many of us have ever prayed. There was a sixteen hour prayer vigil on Election Day from 8 am until midnight. I was a part of that group, and we just prayed across America that God would hear us and unite and heal our land. And many of us – not looking necessarily to Mr. Trump, though – we’re praying for Mr. Trump. We are trying to get back to ‘In God We Trust.’”
