Palin was an early supporter of Trump’s run for President, and now he’s returning the favor.
According to NBC News:
In a statement released through his Save America political action committee, Trump praised Palin for backing him for president in 2016.
“Sarah shocked many when she endorsed me very early in 2016, and we won big,” Trump said. “Now, it’s my turn! Sarah has been a champion for Alaska values, Alaska energy, Alaska jobs, and the great people of Alaska.”
Trump, who called Palin an “America First fighter,” said she “lifted the McCain presidential campaign out of the dumps.”
She endured “some very evil, stupid, and jealous people within the campaign itself,” the former president said.
“They were out to destroy her,” he said, “but she didn’t let that happen. Sarah Palin is tough and smart and will never back down.”
