Trump praises Katie Britt’s SOTU response, blasts liberal media for reaction

At a campaign rally outside of Dayton, Ohio on Saturday, presumptive Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump spent some time reflecting on the 2022 Alabama U.S. Senate race and commending the winner of that election, Sen. Katie Britt (R-Montgomery), for her performance in the official GOP response to the 2024 State of the Union address.

“Katie Britt,” Trump told supporters. “Who liked the job she did the other night? I thought she did a very nice job. Liberals didn’t like it very much, I guess.”

Mainstream media outlets lashed out at Britt’s response over a story she shared involving a victim of human trafficking and illegal immigration, which was vindicated after CNN retracted their inaccurate and overblown concerns. In the days since, many have said Britt’s profile as the youngest Republican woman in the U.S. Senate is a threat to the narrative pushed by Democrats and the media.

“Because people don’t want to hear bull––––,” Trump told supporters in Ohio on Saturday. “They don’t want to hear it.”

In the context of Trump’s remarks, the former president said he endorsed Britt in 2022 after an infamous moment involving former Congressman Mo Brooks. I call it the Mo Brooks speech,” he said.
