Trump Rescinds Support of Longtime Ally Who Called to Move Past 2020 Fraud

'I don’t think the great people of Alabama will disagree with me... '

(Alex Tien, Headline USAFormer President Donald Trump is continuing to make his presence felt in the conservative political scene.

On Wednesday morning, Trump rescinded his endorsement for the election of Mo Brooks, who is running for the US Senate from Alabama. Brooks, who is currently a sitting member of the US House of Representatives, has been a staunch supporter of President Trump in the past.

However, back in August of 2021, Brooks, when speaking at a rally, told the audience to “put the election behind you.” 

This was one of the most significant reasons that Trump decided to pull his support from Brooks.

In a prepared statement, Trump commented on how this remark at the rally was Brooks’ pitfall, saying “When I heard his statement, I said, ‘Mo, you just blew the Election, and there’s nothing you can do about it.”

“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,” Trump said. “I don’t think the great people of Alabama will disagree with me.”

Trump also mentioned how Brooks has gone “woke” and has been listening to bad advice from a new campaign manager who has insisted that Brooks stop talking about the 2020 election.

Additionally, Trump’s statement highlighted the importance of maintaining election integrity and concluded with the statement that “Election Fraud must be captured and stopped, or we won’t have a Country anymore.”

Prior to this morning’s events, Brooks had made Trump’s endorsement a primary component of his campaign and advertising, even calling himself “MAGA Mo.”

It is clear that the former President still wields enormous power in the state of Alabama and will now look to put his support behind a new candidate, likely either Katie Britt or Michael Durant, who have both met with Trump.

Brooks, whose polling numbers were already beginning to drop, will face an uphill battle for the election without the backing of the former President.
