Republican Senator John Kennedy of Louisiana has been a good friend to Trump and it has paid off.
Trump has endorsed Kennedy for reelection.
He even called Kennedy brilliant.
Trump Endorses Sen. Kennedy: He’s the ‘Real Deal,’ ‘Brilliant’
One of the staunch conservatives in the Senate has drawn the emphatic endorsement of former President Donald Trump on Wednesday.
The “folksy” Sen. John Kennedy, R-La., who has famously grilled Dr. Anthony Fauci on indirect U.S. funding for the Wuhan Institute of Virology last month, is running for reelection with Trump’s backing.
“Fantastic news for Louisiana and the U.S.A. — Sen. John Kennedy will be seeking reelection!” Trump wrote in a statement to Newsmax from his Save America PAC. “John is strong on crime, the border, our military, our veterans, pro-life, energy, and the economy, and our very much under siege Second Amendment.”
Trump added a swipe to famously moderate Sen. Bill Cassidy, R-La., who has taken far more anti-Trump positions in the past few years than Kennedy has since joining the Senate the same year Trump entered the White House.
If you look at John Kennedy’s Twitter feed, you can immediately see that he has a lot in common with Trump.
Stopping taxpayer $ from flowing to dictators and genocidal leaders is a no-brainer.
I can't see how anyone with America's best interests at heart would have a problem voting to require Congress to sign off before the Treasury sends U.S. $ to dictators.https://t.co/PXFWAqDTgR
