Looks like Trump asked Sylvester Stallone for a huge favor

Donald Trump is filling his cabinet, but it’s not just politics and military on his mind. The arts are a priority for him too and he has made a very interesting choice to become the next chairman of the National Endowment for the Arts. It’s none other than Hollywood icon, Sylvester Stallone.


The National Endowment for the Arts is a federal organization that gives funding to artists and creative projects. Stallone has not been formally offered the job yet, but he is apparently one of Trump’s front-runners for the job. And a source says that the arts is something that Trump finds very important. “It’s been widely and wrongly assumed that a Trump Presidency will be hostile to the arts,” the source said. “But Mr Trump feels this sort of A-list appointment is precisely the shot in the arm that the industry needs.” Art museums, opera houses, music and dance, and other artistic endeavors all fall under the NEA’s umbrella.

Stallone is best known for his roles as Rocky Balboa and John Rambo. While he is not a registered Republican, he previously endorsed John McCain for president in 2008. He didn’t officially endorse Trump, but spoke positively of him as “larger than life.” “I love Donald Trump,” he said in an interview with Variety Magazine. “He’s a great Dickensian character. You know what I mean? There are certain people like Arnold, Babe Ruth, that are bigger than life. But I don’t know how that translates to running the world.”

Do you think Stallone is a good choice to run the NEA?
