(FreedomJournal.org)- President Donald Trump might have left the White House, but he isn’t stopping fighting for America. According to The Hill, the former president promised to travel to Alaska and campaign against incumbent Senator Lisa Murkowski as she seeks re-election.
Murkowski has been the state’s senator since 2002 and in recent years has become an unpredictable vote in the Senate and a huge critic of the former president. Most recently she went against the consensus of the Republican Party and supported Rep. Deb Haaland’s nomination to become the next Interior Secretary.
Unsurprisingly, Murkowski also voted to convict the former president in the second impeachment trial in February.
Voting to convict a former president in an unconstitutional impeachment trial based on inaccurate claims that he incited violence in Washington, D.C., is certainly enough to catch the attention of Trump.
Trump’s “Save America” PAC issued a statement to The Hill, revealing that the former President would “not be endorsing, under any circumstances, the failed candidate from the great State of Alaska.”
“She represents her state badly and her country even worse. I do not know where other people will be next year, but I know where I will be — in Alaska campaigning against a disloyal and very bad Senator,” he said.
Trump also cited her vote to advance the far-left democrat Deb Haaland for Secretary of the Interior was “another example of Murkowski not standing up for Alaska.”
Not only is the former president vowing to campaign against her, Trump ally and former vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin has previously alluded to running for Senate to unseat her.
In September last year, former Governor of Alaska Sarah Palin published a video threatening to run for Senate if she didn’t give President Donald Trump’s nominee to replace Ruth Bader Ginsburg on the Supreme Court a fair shot.
“We sure hope that you have it within you to do the right thing this time,” Palin said, referencing Murkowski’s refusal to support the nomination of Brett Kavanaugh in 2018.
In the video, in which Palin repeatedly pointed to her house, she said,” If you can’t do that, remember my house? I can see a lot of things from my house…Lisa, I can see 2022 from my house.”
It was both an implied threat that she might primary Murkowski and a reference to the 2008 presidential campaign during which Palin was mocked for saying she could see Russia from her house.
Does Murkowski stand a chance against Donald Trump and Sarah Palin?
