Baldwin, who was fired by Trump on two different seasons of "The Celebrity Apprentice," said during an interview with Don Lemon on an episode of "CNN Tonight" that Trump would make a "great" president "because he's not a politician, and he doesn't care what anybody thinks."

The former pro wrestler, former Minnesota governor, and actor was speaking with previous Trump staffer Roger Stone for "Off the Grid," when Ventura said, "I shocked my staff today. I came in and said, ‘You know what, as far as the Republicans are concerned, I hope Trump wins.'" Though he also added, "Now I’m not a Republican — I’m not a Democrat either — so ultimately, I’d like somebody else to win overall.”

Characterizing her willingness to vote for Trump as an instance of "supporting a friend," Harth added, "I saw him recently, and he said I looked good. I have nothing but good things to say about Donald."

According to LawNewz, such was not the case in 1997, when Harth — who at the time went by the name Jill Harth Houraney — filed a $125 million lawsuit against Trump. Harth says she met Trump in the early 1990s while working as a pageant producer.

Among the allegations in Harth's suit: That in 1993, at Trump's Palm Beach, Florida, estate, the real-estate mogul "forcibly removed plaintiff to a bedroom, whereupon defendant subjected plaintiff to defendant's unwanted sexual advances, which included touching of plaintiff's private pars in an act constituting attempted 'rape.'"

Trump denied the allegations in the lawsuit, which was withdrawn less than a month after its filing. Around that same time, Harth's husband, George Houraney, was suing Trump for breach of contract, and Trump dismissed Harth's lawsuit as "a desperate attempt to get me to settle a case they can't win."

In her interview with LawNews, Harth said that she was "pressured" to file the lawsuit and did so "under duress," adding, "The allegations were twisted and embellished. Everything could be looked at in a different way."
