President Donald Trump on Tuesday waded into the increasingly nasty Georgia Republican gubernatorial primary and endorsed Secretary of State Brian Kemp ahead of next week’s runoff.
Brian Kemp is running for Governor of the great state of Georgia. The Primary is on Tuesday. Brian is tough on crime, strong on the border and illegal immigration. He loves our Military and our Vets and protects our Second Amendment. I give him my full and total endorsement.

The endorsement is a big boost for Kemp, a politician in the Trump mold who brags in campaign ads about being “so conservative” that he drives a “big truck” so he can, if need be, abduct undocumented immigrants and transport them to back to their countries of origin.
But Kemp shouldn’t get too attached to Trump’s kind words, because they are, with only slight variations, a carbon copy of basically every other endorsement the president ever given over Twitter:
Congressman Ron DeSantis, a top student at Yale and Harvard Law School, is running for Governor of the Great State of Florida. Ron is strong on Borders, tough on Crime & big on Cutting Taxes – Loves our Military & our Vets. He will be a Great Governor & has my full Endorsement!

Henry McMaster loves the people of South Carolina and was with me from the beginning. He is strong on Crime and Borders, great for our Military and our Vets. He is doing a fantastic job as your Governor, and has my full endorsement, a special guy. Vote on Tuesday!
