Mike Lindell is the best known for his “My Pillow” products, but he is also a conservative and a big fan of President Trump. During a speech at the Conservative Political Action Conference this week, he called Trump the greatest president in history.

Mike Lindell Talks Addiction at CPAC: Trump Giving America ‘Second Chance’ Like God Gave Me
Minnesota entrepreneur Mike Lindell, inventor of the MyPillow, spoke at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) in a speech streamed on Fox Nation.
Lindell told the crowd in Oxon Hill, Md. on Thursday that a decade ago, he was enmeshed in a crack cocaine and alcohol addiction.
“On January 16, 2009, God freed me from [the addictions] and started me on a path to a restored heart. Praise Jesus,” Lindell said.
He said that when he became clean, he realized he had not followed what he called the national decline in America.
“Friends were unemployed, [America had] terrible political correctness… People were trying to take God out of everything. Police [were] getting attacked for doing their jobs,” he said.
“It looked like the End Times prophesized in the Bible,” Lindell, 57, continued.
He said that when Donald Trump announced his presidential run following an iconic escalator ride in Manhattan, N.Y., he wanted to find out more about liberal versus conservative politics.

Lindell was in the news recently for blasting the Democrats over their support for late term abortions.

‘So Horrific What’s Going On Now’: ‘My Pillow’ Creator Blasts Dems’ Support for Late-Term Abortion Laws
Mike Lindell, the creator of “My Pillow,” joined “Starnes Country” on Fox Nation to react to the prominence of new abortion laws and to laud President Trump for his State of the Union address.
Lindell, who is a pro-life Christian, told Starnes that there’s “something wrong” in the country when abortion is treated as flippantly by some in positions of power.
He said his thoughts were echoed by a news analyst on television who said that “people are protecting minnows in California” but not infants in some states.
“With New York doing what they did — passing these laws to kill babies… it’s so horrific what’s going on right now,” he said.
“There’s something wrong with that picture,” he added.
Good for him for standing up for his beliefs as a conservative.
