Fox News Channel’s Laura Ingraham strongly supported Donald Trump during both his 2016 and 2020 Presidential campaigns.
But Donald Trump thought he may have lost Ingraham’s support.
That’s why he was floored when he heard what Laura Ingraham said about running in 2024.
According to a recent article in Rolling Stone, Donald Trump is dividing the hosts at Fox News Channel based on who he believes will support his 2024 campaign and who he believed would rally behind someone else.
Even though she supported him in 2016 and 2020, Donald Trump labeled Laura Ingraham as one of the hosts who he thought may support his challenger.
After all, Ingraham previously said she wasn’t ready to get behind Trump in 2024 just yet.
But during a recent episode of her show, Ingraham sounded like Trump’s biggest supporter in the country, mocking RINOs and members of the left-wing media for falsely writing his political obituary.
“That’s what’s called wishful thinking, folks, because they desperately wanted Trump gone, they let that clout — whatever sliver of political judgment they ever had, if they had any to begin with. Now, check out this map of states where Trump-endorsed candidates have won so far in Senate races,” Ingraham added.
Ingraham pointed to Arizona, where all of Trump’s endorsed candidates came out on top in the Primary, as proof that his power in the GOP is unmatched.
“Now, for those of you keeping score at home, that’s 8–0, a record in the Senate primaries. And in the House primaries, his record is 14 wins and five losses. So that’s an overall success rate for all races Senate, House, and Governors of 95% for incumbents and 79% for non-incumbents. That winning percentage should become even more big with the now-expected victory of Kari Lake in Arizona after tonight’s new batch of counted votes. Now, whatever you think of Trump’s policies, his personality, does all of that look like the record of someone with waning political influence? The establishment view again is wrong on so many issues, and it was that Trump was bad for the GOP,” Ingraham added.
Ingraham was proven right as Trump ally Kari Lake won the GOP primary for Arizona governor.
Ingraham also mentioned how Hispanic voters are fleeing the Democrat Party and joining the Republican Party in droves in large part due to Donald Trump’s broad appeal to all segments of society.
“They said that over and over — like, he turned people off. ‘I would never vote for him, minorities would run from him.’ Well, that’s not panning out either. In fact, when it comes to minorities, the opposite is the case. Hispanics are more favorably inclined toward Republicans than ever before,” Ingraham concluded.
The political elites and pundits all predicted that Trump’s endorsed candidates would go down in flames in the primaries because of his alleged dwindling influence.
But the exact opposite happened.
And Donald Trump’s record proves he is still the dominant force in the GOP.
