Move over, Sarah Palin — Donald Trump has a new supporter. Rapper Kid Rock opened up about the GOP presidential front-runner during a recent interview with Rolling Stone magazine.

"I'm digging Trump. I feel like a lot of people, whether you're a Democrat or a Republican, feel like if you get Hillary [Clinton] or Bernie [Sanders], or you get [Marco] Rubio or [Ted] Cruz or whoever, there's going to be the same sh-t. Has that much f–king changed when anyone's in office, whether it's been a Republican or a Democrat in office, in our lifetime, anyway? I haven't really seen this big, like, f–king change. Obviously some people f–ked up," the star, 45, said, laughing. "That's a long debate."

He added: "My feeling: Let the motherf–king business guy run it like a f–king business."

Trump, 69, has made several controversial comments since throwing his hat in the ring in June — and Kid Rock loves it. The entertainer, who is a vocal Republican and previously backed Mitt Romney in 2012, told RS that Trump's campaign is "entertaining as sh-t," and he truly believes that the business mogul will win the Republican nomination.

"To me, I'm just like, 'We gotta try something else.’ And … I'm not an expert at political science or anything. I do try to follow things, obviously. I'm a pretty good, taxpaying citizen of this country," he added. "Let the business guy in there. It's not really working too well running it not like a business. I mean, what business f–king survives when they're f–king broke?"
