Donald Trump gives Mo Brooks his ‘Complete Endorsement’
As the Republican candidates for U.S. Senate are waiting with bated breath in anticipation for if and when President Donald Trump will issue his judgment on their race, Trump made his position known on another GOP primary contest within the boundaries of Alabama.
Via a posting on Twitter, Trump gave his “Complete Endorsement” to U.S. Rep. Mo Brooks (R-Huntsville) on Friday in Alabama’s Fifth Congressional District.
Brooks, a five-term incumbent, faces retired U.S. Navy officer Chris Lewis in the March 3 Republican primary. No Democrat candidate qualified to run in this November’s general election, therefore the candidate that emerges victorious on the GOP side will likely be a congressman through 2022.
.@MoInTheHouse Brooks is running for Congress in the Great State of Alabama. He is a huge supporter of the #MAGA Agenda. Mo fully supports Securing our Border w/the WALL, he Loves our Military & Vets, & is Strong on the #2A. Mo has my Complete Endorsement! https://t.co/wQ0euFBwbI

“[Mo] Brooks is running for Congress in the Great State of Alabama,” the president tweeted. “He is a huge supporter of the #MAGA Agenda. Mo fully supports Securing our Border w/the WALL, he Loves our Military & Vets, & is Strong on the #2A. Mo has my Complete Endorsement!”
In a statement, Brooks reacted, “I thank President Trump for his endorsement in the March 3 GOP Primary. President Trump’s endorsement confirms what most Tennessee Valley voters already know: that I have been, and am, a very dependable and stalwart supporter of America’s foundational principals that have combined to make America the greatest nation in world history.”
“No question, President Trump deeply appreciates my unwavering support for strong border security,” he continued. “Too many Americans are dead, have lost jobs, or suffered from suppressed wages because of the illegal alien tsunami that crosses America’s porous southern border with impunity.”
