“Hope you win. May god give you the strength to follow the constitution and human values. All the best.

#HillaryClintonforpresident,” Salman, 50, tweeted.

Clinton has a lot of celebrity endorsements with Leonardo DiCaprio, Beyonce, Kim Kardashian, Kanye West, Jeffrey Katzenenberg, Katy Perry, Waka Flocka, Ariana Grande and America Ferrera backing her.

Clinton has a lead of about 800 celebrities backing her, according to PolitiFact. Some of Clinton’s acolytes include Lena Dunham, Meryl Streep, Lebron James, America Ferrera and Oprah Winfrey. Others have even switched sides to support Clinton: Sarah Silverman, who made a video publicly endorsing Bernie Sanders, later endorsed Clinton at the Democratic National Convention.

Trump’s significantly shorter list of endorsements include Tom Brady, Hulk Hogan, Tila Tequila, Azealia Banks, Sarah Palin and Scott Baio.
