Dancing with the Stars contestant Gary Busey is apparently one of Donald Trump's biggest advocates.

After making his Dancing with the Stars debut Monday night, Busey -- who also previously competed on two seasons of Trump's The Celebrity Apprentice -- expressed support for Trump's Presidential candidacy.

"I know him personally. I know him professionally. He's a great guy. He's sharp. He's fast. He can change the country after the last eight years," Busey told Fox News.

Although Busey insisted, "I'm not getting into politics," he admitted to enjoying "every day" with Trump on the set of The Celebrity Apprentice.

On Monday night's Dancing with the Stars performance show, Busey, 71, landed in a three-way tie for ninth place on the leaderboard with his patient pro partner Anna Trebunskaya. The couple received 15 out of 30 points from show judges Carrie Ann Inaba, Julianne Hough and Bruno Tonioli.

"I feel great. I did great with Anna, from Russia with love," Busey said, making a reference to his Russian-born dance partner.

"That's how it happened. She programmed me, choreographed me in what she knows about me that I didn't know [myself] and that's the magic."

Busey told Fox News his first experience on Dancing with the Stars was a blast.

"It was too much fun," noted the Oscar winning actor. "You know what happens when you have too much fun? Ha, ha. Use your imagination."

Busey also claimed he wasn't nervous to step on the Dancing with the Stars stage.

"My mother and father raised a strong boy and they were very strong with me," Busey explained. "They loved me unconditionally and set me up to go and I went where I am now."

Busey had dedicated his cha cha dance routine last night to his mother, who had passed away three years ago. Dancing with the Stars was apparently her favorite show.
