President Donald Trump is making his voice heard this week.

After releasing a scathing statement criticizing Joe Biden’s handling of Afghanistan, President Trump also announced his endorsement for Tennessee governor Bill Lee ahead of the 2022 general election.

Governor Lee is facing heavy criticism from republicans due to his Covid-19 policies.

Despite this, an endorsement from President Trump is big deal.

Trump called Lee “an outsider who led the Great State of Tennessee through difficult times, without compromising his Conservative Values.”

He also commended Lee for his continued support for law enforcement, military veterans, border security, and protecting the Second Amendment.

Former President Donald Trump on Friday gave Gov. Bill Lee his "complete and total" endorsement ahead of the 2022 general election.

This comes as the Tennessee governor faces recent backlash from some GOP lawmakers on his response to the latest COVID-19 outbreak.

Trump released the following statement:

Governor Bill Lee is an outsider who led the Great State of Tennessee through difficult times, without compromising his Conservative Values. Tennesseans enjoy more freedom than ever before. He fully supports Law Enforcement, Strong Borders, the Second Amendment, our Military and our Vets. Re-electing Bill Lee means putting America first. Bill has my Complete and Total Endorsement!

The Nashville Post with more on President Trump's endorsement of Lee, who doesn't yet face stiff competition in the republican primary:

Former President Donald Trump on Friday endorsed GOP Gov. Bill Lee’s re-election bid more than a year out from the 2022 general election.

Lee is so far facing only nominal competition in the Republican primary, though some more prominent Tennessee Republicans, including Maury County Mayor Andy Ogles, have flirted with the possibility of challenging Lee.

“Governor Bill Lee is an outsider who led the Great State of Tennessee through difficult times, without compromising his Conservative Values,” Trump said. “Tennesseans enjoy more freedom than ever before. He fully supports Law Enforcement, Strong Borders, the Second Amendment, our Military and our Vets. Re-electing Bill Lee means putting America first.”

President Trump and governor Lee are no strangers to each other.

The two visited Cookeville in March of 2020 following a tragic tornado that swept through the city.
