On Tuesday, President Trump sent out a tweet further supporting Sen. Luther Strange and his race in Alabama.
Trump wrote: “Senator Luther Strange, who is doing a great job for the people of Alabama, will be on
@foxandfriends at 7:15. Tough on crime, borders etc.”
Last week, Trump also sent out a ringing endorsement for Sen. Strange in the state of Alabama via Twitter.
In the tweet, Trump wrote “Senator Luther Strange has done a great job representing the people of the Great State of Alabama. He has my complete and total endorsement!”
Strange will be competing for the seat left vacant by Attorney General Jeff Sessions. Strange is the former Alabama attorney general.
Trump praised Sessions earlier this month for his work as attorney general.
Yesterday, Trump doubled down on his endorsement of Sen. Strange in the Alabama special election taking place on Aug. 15.
In the tweet, the president wrote: “Luther Strange of the Great State of Alabama has my endorsement. He is strong on Border & Wall, the military, tax cuts & law enforcement.”
Strange is struggling to gain a leading spot in Alabama polls and is facing a tough primary challenge from conservative congressman Mo Brooks.
Brooks, who felt sideswiped by Trump’s endorsement of Strange, has been trying to link Strange to Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) and the GOP establishment.
Brooks has openly pleaded for Trump to change his endorsement, but Strange has been a loyal Trump ally in the Senate, and Trump hasn’t forgotten harsh words spoken by Rep. Brooks. The president was called a serial adulterer by Brooks prior to being elected president. Meanwhile, in July, Strange said Trump’s presidency was a “biblical miracle.”
