Mayweather has met with Trump since the election and reported that "All Donald Trump talked about was helping America become great again. That’s what he talked about."

The two seem to share a mutual affinity.

"He’s never been mean to me. Donald Trump came up to support me for the Manny Pacquiao fight," Mayweather said. "I was very appreciative for that."

"A lot of times we judge people we really don’t know," Mayweather continued. "I’m not here to say nothing negative about nobody."

He had praise for outgoing President Barack Obama and hopes for his successor.

"Barack Obama was a good president," Mayweather said. "Hopefully Donald Trump is a good president."
