“I hope so,” Trump said in an exclusive interview Tuesday with NewsNation. “She’s fantastic.”
MAGA — an abbreviation for Trump’s 2016 campaign slogan “Make America Great Again” — has also been characterized as “Trumpism.”
Trump lauded Lake as being “fantastic” and a “star.”
“She is absolutely a future star of the party and the country,” Trump said
Trump visited Mesa, Arizona, last month to promote Lake and her fellow Arizona Republicans.
Not everyone is on board with the former Phoenix local news anchor rising the ranks through the GOP.
Some Arizona Republicans even campaigned for Lake’s Democratic opponent Katie Hobbs.
While Lake has campaigned on border security, gun rights and opposing COVID mandates, she also has been vocal about election integrity — supporting Trump’s false claims that he won the 2020 presidential election.
Hobbs has refuted those claims, campaigning for reproductive rights and advocating public schools over charter schools.
The Democratic candidate also has pledged to offer more support when it comes to the border.
