During the 2016 presidential elections, Donald Trump supporters in the celebrity world were small in number, but vocal in their advocacy for the businessman and outsized personality. And while he's gained few friends since becoming president, some celebs are still coming out in support of the Donald. 

Many famous people for Donald Trump are well-known conservatives who jumped onto the bandwagon of the highest-polling GOP candidate. Others are former cast members of Trump's Celebrity Apprentice, making it known how much of a pleasure it was to work with Trump - and possibly looking to ingratiate themselves with their former "boss." A few backers of Trump for president were looking for cabinet positions - and some actually got them. And of course, there's Charlie Sheen.

Here are the figures from the entertainment and sports worlds who have publicly made it known they support Trump.
