I have said it time and time again….
President Trump IS The GOP at this point. He may not be in The White House, but he now has far more leverage than ever before.
Conservatives everywhere adore The 45th President and his no nonsense approach to putting America first.
RINO’s everywhere are running scared, and fresh new political candidates know they need his blessing to get into office.
This is a great thing. President Trump is now pretty much the kingmaker for The GOP, and it couldn’t have come any sooner.
Take a look:
Newsweek had more on the story:
Former President Donald Trump boasted on Tuesday that Republican candidates wouldn't win unless they received his endorsement.
A minority faction of Republican lawmakers have expressed staunch opposition against Trump in the wake of the January 6 assault by the former president's supporters against the U.S. capitol. Although some analysts have described this as a "civil war" within the GOP, most Republicans in Congress have aligned themselves with Trump as have most Republican voters, according to multiple polls. Surveys have repeatedly shown that the former president continues to be the dominant political force among GOP voters.
"Everybody [running for office] wants the endorsement because if they don't get the endorsement they're not going to win, for the most part they're not going to win," Trump said Tuesday during an interview with Newsmax.
Politico also reported this:
Former President Donald Trump is endorsing Rep. Mo Brooks in the Alabama Senate race, a nod that could dramatically reshape next year's GOP primary for the state's open seat.
“Few Republicans have as much COURAGE and FIGHT as Alabama Congressman Mo Brooks,” Trump said in a statement to be released Wednesday morning, adding that Brooks is “a great Conservative Republican leader, who will stand up for America First no matter what obstacles the Fake News Media, RINOs, or Socialist Democrats may place in his path.”
Trump added that Brooks “has my Complete and Total Endorsement.”
In a state where Trump received more than 60 percent of the vote, his endorsement was widely sought after. Brooks and his rival, businesswoman Lynda Blanchard, had aggressively lobbied for the former president’s backing.
It’s a blow to Blanchard, who has been touting her past role as U.S. ambassador to Slovenia and already committed to spending $5 million of her own fortune on the race.
