But which celebrities have placed their support firmly in the Trump camp and who is backing Biden for the win?

Celebrities who endorse Donald Trump

50 Cent

Rapper 50 Cent recently publicly endorsed Donald Trump, after criticising Joe Biden’s tax rates for high earners.

He tweeted a shot of the tax rates proposed by Democratic candidate Joe Biden and his running mate Kamala Harris.

Under the proposal, taxpayers in California, New Jersey and New York who earn more than $400,000 a year could face combined state and local income tax rates of more than 60%.

The rapper wrote: 'WHAT THE F***! (VOTE ForTRUMP) IM OUT. F*** NEW YORK The KNICKS never win anyway.'

Jon Voight

The US actor appeared in a pro-Trump video appeal in which he labelled Joe Biden “evil” and urged US citizens to vote for the incumbent president.

The video begins with Voight looking straight at the camera and saying “Biden is evil.”

The 81-year-old Oscar winner continues: “Trump must win. He's real. He will bring back the people's trust.

“These leftists are not for the American people. It's the biggest cover-up ever.”

Voight has been a longtime supporter of the president and went on to claim that Biden's plan for America is similar to that of former president Barack Obama.

“Biden is an extension of the policies of Obama that weakened America and we cannot let that happen again,” he added.

James Woods

The actor has been described as a staunch supporter of Trump and tweeted in May that the president “loves America more than any president in my lifetime.”

“Let’s face it. Donald Trump is a rough individual,” Woods tweeted. “He is vain, insensitive and raw. But he loves America more than any President in my lifetime.

“He is the last firewall between us and this cesspool called Washington. I’ll take him any day over any of these bums. #Trump2020,” he added to his 2.73 million followers.

Trump also thanked Woods for his praise in a tweet, writing: “I think that is a great compliment. Thank you James!”

Kid Rock

The musician has been an outspoken supporter of Donald Trump since 2016 when he entered the political arena.

Kid Rock tweeted a picture of the pair on a golf course after Mr Trump’s Senate acquittal and he was enlisted to headline a rally in Michigan to promote the president’s re-election campaign.

Conor McGregor

The mixed martial arts fighter praised Trump in January 2020, saying on Twitter: "Phenomenal president. Quite possibly the USA [greatest of all time]. Most certainly one of them anyway, as he sits atop the shoulders of many amazing giants that came before him."

“And that starts by voting for someone who understands how much is at stake,” Eilish continued.

“Someone who is building a team that shares our values. It starts with voting against Donald Trump and for Joe Biden.”
