Sarah Huckabee Sanders Endorses Trump 

Former President Donald Trump’s 2024 presidential campaign got a significant boost on Wednesday after Gov. Sarah Huckabee Sanders (R-AR) gave the former president her formal endorsement. 

Sanders, who served as Trump’s press secretary during the former president’s administration, maintained that the country has never needed Trump more than it does right now. 

“The truth is, it’s not even a question anymore between right and left; it is normal versus crazy, and the left is doubling down on crazy.” Sanders said. “We’ve got out-of-control inflation, violent crime, an open border, a rising China. Biden and the left have failed over and over again, and they know it, and you know it, and it is time for a change. That is why tonight I am so proud to endorse my former boss, my friend, and everybody’s favorite president, Donald J. Trump.”

Sanders, while speaking, noted the countless achievements of the Trump administration, including Trump’s three Supreme Court appointments that were instrumental in overturning Roe v. Wade. She also pointed at the U.S. energy independence under Trump’s administration, and Trump’s efforts to secure the border and rebuild the military. 

“Think back to four years ago. Our economy was booming, gas was cheap, homes were affordable, people were thriving,” Sanders said. “Our enemies actually feared us, and our people loved us,” she said. “President Trump made us great, and I know that he will do it again. That’s because he’s not afraid to be an outsider, a change agent, a disrupter. He put America first.”

Sanders announced her endorsement of the former president while on stage at a Trump rally in Hialeah, Florida. The GOP Arkansas governor spoke fondly of the time she spent working with Trump during his administration. 

“I will never forget the time that President Trump pulled me aside, looked me straight in the eye, and said, ‘Sarah, you’re tough, you’re beautiful, and you’re good at your job. That’s why they attack you. Never let them get you down,’” she recalled Trump saying. Then, in true Trump fashion, he popped me on the shoulder and said, ‘Okay, now get back to work,’”
