He said: "It’s just an honor to be here. But my biggest honor today is gonna be that — I think we're gonna be on the same stage — as, in my opinion, the real, the legitimate, and the still actual president of the United States, Donald J. Trump."

Unanue then went on to joke about the abuse he could receive from making the claim.
