The musician took to Twitter to share his relief that the controversial Republican Party representative had secured a victory over Hillary Clinton.

“I am honestly so relieved, inexcusable sexism aside I believe he is by far the lesser of two evils," the 56-year-old wrote on Twitter.

"It boils down to WW3 or Peace," he added.

“He [Trump] wants to sit down and talk with Russia, not provoke and antagonise with constant threats and baseless accusations.

“Perhaps nuclear WW3 has been averted.”

Before congratulating Trump on his win, Jim took the opportunity to slam Clinton.

“Look at the track record of the other candidate, the profound corruption, the endless lies, the constant warmongering, the destruction of Libya which turned out to be a personal vendetta...

“I won’t even get into disturbing statements made by ex secret service and former Clinton aides.”

He added: “We can only hope that The Donald lives up to the expectations of the American people whom despite the media, Wall street & a rigged system voted @realDonaldTrump into power via an overwhelming landslide .

“May God be his guide at every turn. Jim x”

Jim is known for his controversial conspiracy theories.

He claimed that the 9/11 attacks in the US were carried out by "rogue elements" in President George W Bush's administration.

In 2008, during an interview with Matt Cooper on Today FM's 'Last Word', Jim made the case for voting 'No' to Lisbon, claiming it could introduce the death penalty to Ireland and contribute to a "new world order".

Corr's opposition was based on his three years "studying the New World Order which the European Union is a part of".
