The 2016 U.S. presidential race is really heating up with the critical Super Tuesday contests helping to further define the contenders. As the Republican and Democratic parties get closer to finding their nominees following the primary elections, celebrities have started sharing their endorsements on social media to boost support for their top pick for America's next leader.
From reality TV star Kim Kardashian supporting Hillary Clinton to actress Susan Sarandon supporting Bernie Sanders, many Hollywood celebrities seem to be leaning Democratic. But some are clearly on Team Trump or backing other leading GOP candidates. Below is a list of celebrity presidential endorsements:
Real estate mogul Donald Trump says he hasn't sought any endorsements, but he's nonetheless picked some up from celebrities along the way. Singer Aaron Carter has tweeted out support for Trump, as well as former NBA player Dennis Rodman. Mike Tyson told HuffPost Live in October that he believes Trump should be president and Azealia Banks has also voiced her endorsement of the Republican front-runner. You can see some of their tweets below:

@realDonaldTrump has been a great friend for many years. We don't need another politician, we need a businessman like Mr. Trump! Trump 2016
