Donald Trump received a resounding reception when he showed up at a UFC fight in Las Vegas over the weekend.
But the real story came when photos emerged of the 45th president chatting it up with actor Mel Gibson, who has played a big role in promoting the anti-human trafficking film “Sound of Freedom.”
As Post Millennial reported:
Gibson has been a major promoter of the movie. “One of the most disturbing problems in our world today is human trafficking and particularly the trafficking of children” Gibson said recently in promotion of SOF. In fact, Jack Posobiec said that “Tim Ballard claimed Mel Gibson had some input on the final edit of Sound of Freedom.”
UFC boss Dana White pledged, just hourse [sic] earlier to pay for all of his employees to see the groundbreaking film.
The encounter backstage at the highly anticipated UFC event created a buzz among attendees and media. Joined by Roger Stone, the meeting brought together three individuals known for their strong personalities and outspoken views, resulting in a captivating blend of politics, entertainment, and intrigue.
The encounter sparked plenty of discussion on social media:

Trump was also seen engaging in conversations with podcast host Joe Rogan and celebrity chef Guy Fieri.
According to the Daily Mail:
The de-facto leader of the Republican party also spent time greeting and high-fiving fans, who cheered continuously for him.
Trump has long been friends with UFC president Dana White, who has supported the 77-year-old businessman-turned-politician during both of the last presidential elections.
Trump has in the past spoken positively about Rogan, calling him an ‘interesting an popular guy’ and defending him in the wake of the controversy revolving around Rogan’s use of the N-word.
