This is sure to be welcome news to McGregor who is a vocal supporter of Trump. In January 2020, McGregor took to Twitter in response to Trump saying that it was his third anniversary as President of the United States.
McGregor tweeted, "Phenomenal President. Quite possibly the USA. Most certainly one of them anyway, as he sits atop the shoulders of many amazing giants that came before him. No easy feet. Early stages of term also. Incredible. Congratulations and Happy Martin Luther King Jr. day America. [sic]"

Early stages of term also.
Congrats and Happy Martin Luther King Jr. day America ??❤️??

Trump, who has since been kicked off Twitter, responded to the comment, congratulating McGregor on his recent win against Donald 'Cowboy' Cerrone.
