Former President Donald Trump continues to relish in his new role as Republican kingmaker as the potential 2024 presidential candidate has just made another key endorsement in the 2022 midterm elections. President Trump has thrown his support behind Texas Gov. Greg Abbott and endorsed him in hopes that his influence will stave off any Republican primary challenge that Gov. Abbott could receive, even a potential challenge from Texas GOP Chairman Allen West.
Trump put out this statement in support of Abbott, touting Abbott’s 2nd Amendment and border security bona fides:
Greg Abbott is a fighter and a Great Governor for the incredible people of Texas. No Governor has done more to secure the Border and keep our communities safe than Governor Abbott. Greg is a staunch defender of the Second Amendment and has made Texas a Second Amendment Sanctuary State. Texas has become a job-creating machine, and our partnership helped restore America’s economic power and success. Greg is also very tough on crime, fully supports the brave men and women of Law Enforcement, and is all in on Election Integrity. Governor Greg Abbott will continue to be a great leader for the Lone Star State, and has my Complete and Total Endorsement for re-election. He will never let you down
