Former President Trump has officially withdrawn his endorsement of Alabama Senator Mo Brooks. The move could work to prove just how much influence Trump truly still has over the GOP if Brooks manages to win re-election.

The Hill reports:

“When I endorsed Mo Brooks, he took a 44-point lead and was unstoppable. He then hired a new campaign staff who ‘brilliantly’ convinced him to ‘stop talking about the 2020 Election,'” Trump said in a statement issued on Wednesday morning.

“Very sad but, since he decided to go in another direction, so have I, and I am hereby withdrawing my Endorsement of Mo Brooks for the Senate. I don’t think the great people of Alabama will disagree with me. Election Fraud must be captured and stopped, or we won’t have a Country anymore.”

Trump has reportedly been considering rescinding his endorsement for a while and has already met with other candidates in the Republican primary. Trump has met with Katie Britt, a former aide to retiring Sen. Richard Shelby.

The former president had also spoken out about remarks from Brooks at a rally last year encouraging people to move on from the 2020 election, which Trump has said, without evidence, was subject to election fraud.

“I’m disappointed that he gave an inarticulate answer, and I’ll have to find out what he means,” the former president said of Brooks last week, noting that if the Alabama lawmaker “meant what he sounded like,” Trump would have “no problem” walking back his endorsement.

During his Wednesday statement, Trump hit again on Brooks’ decision to steer away from talking from the 2020 election.

“Mo Brooks of Alabama made a horrible mistake recently when he went “woke” and stated, referring to the 2020 Presidential Election Scam, “Put that behind you, put that behind you,” despite the fact that the Election was rife with fraud and irregularities,” Trump said.

  1. I hate that the President didn’t get reelected. However, I’m not sure that going down the road of rehashing is the way to go. President Trump needs to talk about what he accomplished in 4 years and tell the American people how he can get us out of this mess. Just my thoughts.

    1. Problem is, if President Trump talks too openly about his plans to get us out of this mess, the Dems may jump on the Ideas Wagon, attempt to infuse his thoughts into their own plan of action (if there is one), and then claim the ideas as their very own. Sadly, it feels like our only hope is that things continue to deteriorate to the point where Voters (legit ones, Left & Right) have no reason to vote for any Democrat.

  2. I believe that there was election manipulation and fraud but if that is the center piece of
    his re-election campaign Trump will not prevail. We need to right some of these wrongs
    before the next election by more careful oversight but we need to run on the future plans for this country. What will Republicans do about Inflation, Ukraine, Southern Border, etc?

    1. I agree with you. Obviously we both got thumbs down, but, I don’t want up to lose in 2022 much less 2024. But, I’m ready to vote for the President again.

  3. I wasn’t going to vote for him anyway and several people had already said they would not vote for him because they didn’t like his thoughts and didn’t think he was the right candidate

    1. Ok, soooooo…..are you all happy with the current guy who can’t speak a coherent thought, is ruining our country in every way possible?
      And by the way. He’s NOT running anything, much less the country. The world is laughing at him and cackles every single moment they dare open their pie holes.
      Please come back and tell us how all this is working out for you?

  4. If the cheating and fraud is not exposed by the 2022 election, the Democrats will win again and if that happens we will all lose our freedom forever. Even President Trump will not be able to turn our Country around. When people get away with cheating, they will do it again.

    1. I agree, but maybe President Trump needs to get someone else to carry that bucket of water so he can rise above it and concentrate on what he accomplished and how he’s going to start healing America again in a new term.

  5. President Trump has all the evidence he needs to rescind the election which was the greatest sting operation in living History 133 million Americans registered to vote. 159 Million Ballots were counted =26 million were fraud! They were printed on Chinese bamboo paper with only Biden’s name on them and they arrived at 4am on November the 4th. Fortunately , President Trump (The stable genius) anticipated their intent, and put Blockchain into place which was verified by Justice Amy Barrett. Military have the actual count .Trump 81% and Biden a mere 10% Only under Ultra Violet light were the watermarks visible and they also had tracing agent . President Trump won all 50 States <3

  6. Just forget all the irregularities of the 2020 election? NO. Just move on? Well, we have to do that. Ensure the integrity of voting? Absolutely. Pretend the 2020 election was fair and legal? Not in this lifetime.

  7. Part of my family lives in AL. They trust & support Mo Brooks. Sadly, Trump wanted Brooks to scream 24/7 the 2020 election was stolen. McConnell does not want Brooks & has supported super pacs who are attempting to destroy him. The TV ads are disgusting. McConnell wants RINO Katie Britt, who worked for Sen Shelby, another weak RINO. He wants Trump to support Britt. Trump trips over his ego which has not been good for him. Mo Brooks has been good for AL.

    1. Not good for him, not good for patriots. Sadly, there is a huge cult around this guy. I think we’re doomed, whatever party gets power in 2024. Assuming that the neo-cons now running our foreign policy haven’t gotten us into WWIII by then, in which case, elections won’t be what we’re worrying about. Stock up on essentials and don’t forget the potassium iodide.

  8. When any politician stops working for the good of the nation and starts working to improve his position in politics, then I agree that endorsements must be pulled. No endorsed candidate should be on record supporting the goals of the opposing party, as that simply shows that the candidate or incumbent is unworthy of representing the citizens of the nation.
