On Wednesday, April 7, Trump provided a statement to Newsmax announcing who he was throwing his support behind in the Alabama GOP Senate race. The former president said he has given Rep. Mo Brooks (R-AL) his “complete and total endorsement.” He spoke of the “COURAGE” the congressman displays as he fights for the people of his state, saying he stands up for “America First no matter what obstacles” are put in his way.
