If Democrats were hoping Donald Trump would just “go gentle into that good night,” they were sorely mistaken. Their impeachment scheme failed, meaning Trump can run again if he wants in 2024. On top of that, Trump isn’t waiting until then to get involved.
Since his fiery speech at CPAC (which scared Democrats so much they tried to censor it on YouTube), Trump has become more and more vocal over what’s going on in the country. While Americans await his return to social media (perhaps to one of many alternatives to Facebook and Twitter), he continues to release statements to the public.
He bashed Mitch McConnell and Democrats. He’s condemned Joe Biden’s toxic COVID bill and his failures on the border. And he’s started to provide endorsements to future GOP candidates—a major role he will be serving in the 2022 midterms.
Trump continues to help shape the future of the country, by using his influence to flip Congress. And in a recent statement, he’s urging a friend and NFL great to take back one seat.
Former President Donald Trump wants college football and NFL legend Herschel Walker to run for U.S. Senate in Georgia.
Trump made the announcement Wednesday in an email from his Save America PAC: “Wouldn’t it be fantastic if the legendary Herschel Walker ran for the United States Senate in Georgia? He would be unstoppable, just like he was when he played for the Georgia Bulldogs, and in the NFL. He is also a GREAT person. Run Herschel, run!” [Source: Breitbart]
Walker is a Georgia native who played for the University of Georgia. He’s been close friends with Donald Trump ever since he played for the New Jersey Generals, a team then-owned by Donald. Walker was an outspoken support of Trump’s during his 2016 race and White House term.
Both Georgia Senate seats were taken by Democrats in the aftermath of the disastrous 2020 elections. But the seat won by radical leftist Raphael Warnock is up for grabs in 2022. The controversial Democrat is already in the hot seat, after promising $2,000 COVID relief checks. Voters were outraged when, after putting him in office, news came out that Democrats would only give out $1,400 payments.
On top of that, Warnock is an unlikeable character who is dogged by his own history of scandals and controversial remarks. If Herschel Walker, a famed and beloved American, were to run against him, it would be no contest.
The question remains, is Walker considering this? Trump is known for making big statements and boasts, seemingly from out of nowhere. Is this the first time anyone’s mentioned Walker’s name with the Georgia Senate seats? Probably not. As close as these two men are, it’s hard to believe Trump hadn’t spoken to him personally about running.
I guess we’ll find out what Walker is thinking soon enough.
