Donald Trump is eyeing Sylvester Stallone to chair the National Endowment for the Arts according to media reports Friday.
As Fox News reports Rocky Balboa could chair the National Endowment for the Arts (NEA) if president elect Donald Trump has his way.
Though no official announcement has been made, the Daily Mail reports the actor is “positively disposed to the idea.”
A Trump rep tells Fox News, “No decision has been made here yet.” An RNC rep added, “They are old friends and the President-elect thinks very highly of him, but no decisions have been made regarding this position.”
If Stallone is formally offered that job, his appointment will have to be approved by Congress
A rep for for the 79/year-old actor has not responded to our request for a comment.
The actor told Variety in January “I love Donald Trump.”
Stallone and Trump have been friends for many years making this a great opportunity for the Expendables star to enter the political area.
The NEA is currently governed by artist Jane Chu, who heads the 14-member, president-appointed board. With a $150 million budget, the NEA has some pretty significant power from funding museums and opera shows to promoting policies and programs.
Do you think Stallone would make a good choice?
