Antonio Sabato Jr., who is an actor, Chippendale's dancer, and presumptive Republican nominee Donald Trump supporter, said he believes President Barack Obama is a Muslim and is "with the bad guys" (video below).
"We had a Muslim president for 7 1/2 years," Sabato told ABC News. "I don't believe he is [a Christian]."
Obama has stated publicly several times that he is a practicing Christian, but accusations of being a Muslim have been thrown at him ever since the 2008 Democratic primary versus Hillary Clinton, whose supporters helped start the rumor. When the primary was just heating up in December of 2007, Judy Rose, the volunteer chairwoman for the Clinton campaign in Jones County, Iowa, forwarded an email alleging Obama was secretly a Muslim, reported Politico.
"Obama takes great care to conceal the fact that he is a Muslim," the email said. "The Muslims have said they plan on destroying the U.S. from the inside out, what better way to start than at the highest level - through the President of the United States, one of their own!!!!"
Trump has also been very vocal about his questioning of Obama's birthplace and has been one of the most prominent “birthers” over the past few years – and it appears that Sabato has been listening.
Sabato also told ABC News that Obama is not popular among police and the military, something which the Italian-born, part-time underwear model believes is proof that the president isn't American.
"I believe that he's on the other side ... the Middle East," Sabato said. "He's with the bad guys."
