On November 3, 2020, voters in America will decide on whether Donald Trump remains in the White House for another four years or Joe Biden emerges as the 46th president of the United States of America (USA).
Trump's tenure as president may have been shrouded in controversy but this has done little to stop the growing number of supporters in the Republican president's camp.

The president is being challenged by Democratic Party nominee Joe Biden, who is best known as Barack Obama's vice president but has been in the US politics since the 1970s
Just like Trump, Biden has the backing of quite a number of celebrities and many other people - as reflected in the national presidential polls - which shows Biden is leading.
According to BBC, national polls are a good guide as to how popular a candidate is across the country as a whole, but they're not necessarily a good way to predict the result of the election.
In 2016, for example, Hillary Clinton led in the polls and won nearly three million more votes than Donald Trump, but she still lost - that's because the US uses an electoral college system, so winning the most votes doesn't always win you the election.
As the date for the presidential election draws closer, below are six celebrities who are publicly supporting Trump:
1. Dennis Quaid
In a Daily Beast interview, the Hollywood actor commended the president.
"I think Trump, no matter what anybody thinks of him, is doing a good job at trying to get these states — and all of the American people — what they need, and also trying to hold our economy together and be prepared for when this is all over."
2. Jon Voight
The actor who is also the father of Hollywood star, Angelina Jolie, said in a July 22 video statement:
"This November, we must vote to help keep President Trump in office so he can carry the torch for this land of the free."

4. Connor McGregor

5. Isaiah Washington
The former Grey's Anatomy star announced in late 2019 that he no longer counts himself as a Democrat. He now supports President Trump and appeared in a July 2020 promotional interview with Lara Trump.
