Scott Baio, Antonio Sabato, Jr. to speak at the Republican National Convention

CLEVELAND, July 17 (UPI) — Actors Scott Baio and Antonio Sabato, Jr. have announced they will give speeches at this week’s Republican National Convention in Cleveland.

“You heard it 1st on @JudgeJeanine that @realDonaldTrump personally asked me to go to the #RNC2016 and speak! @DonaldJTrumpJr @EricTrump,” Baio tweeted Saturday after he was interviewed by Fox News’ Jeanine Pirro.

“I was at a fundraiser for Mr. Trump the other night with my wife and he invited me to speak at the convention, which was completely unexpected and out of left field,” Baio explained to Pirro in their interview, calling Trump “a man that I believe in.”

Baio, 55, is best known for his work on the TV shows Happy Days, Joanie Loves Chachi, Charles in Charge, Diagnosis: Murder and See Dad Run.

“It is refreshing to have a candidate like Trump who is so honest about his feelings because he speaks for many of us when he says we are in a bad place,” Sabato, Jr. told People magazine.

“I have never been a Republican or Democrat,” the 44-year-old General Hospital alum added. “I am an American.”

“Looking forward to Monday am with my @foxandfriends #RNCinCLE,” Sabato, Jr. tweeted Sunday.
