Trump’s Un-endorsement of Mo Brooks Shows He Wants Serious Candidates

Trump's Un-endorsement of Mo Brooks Shows He Wants Serious Candidates

( – While the media declared former President Donald Trump needs to move on from the 2020 presidential election and stop claiming election fraud cost him the win, Trump has no intention of backing down. Nor does he appear interested in backing anyone who won’t follow his lead. In a Trump rally in Alabama last August, Rep. Mo Brooks (R-AL) said the Republican Party needed to stop looking back at 2020 and instead focus on 2022 and 2024. Brooks is vying to replace retiring Sen. Richard Shelby’s (R-AL) seat.

On Wednesday, March 23, Trump shared his decision to rescind his endorsement of Brooks because Brooks decided to go in another direction with his campaign. On March 16, the writing was on the wall. In an interview with the Washington Examiner, Trump said he endorsed Brooks because he felt so strongly about election fraud in 2020, but because of his statement, Trump said he needed to re-evaluate his position.

In the announcement rescinding Brook’s endorsement, Trump said Brooks’s 44-point advantage evaporated over the last few months based solely on the candidate’s statement in the August rally. The moment Brooks made the statement, Trump said his chance of winning the election was over. The former president stated he would offer a new endorsement soon.

It’s evident that Trump will endorse the candidate he believes can win an election and back his viewpoint that the 2020 election was rife with fraud and irregularities.
