President Donald Trump announced his endorsement of Adam Steen, who is challenging Wisconsin Assembly Speaker, Robin Vos, in the GOP primary.
In a lengthy endorsement posted Tuesday on Truth Social, the 45th president slammed Vos for refusing to do anything with the investigation into the 2020 election fraud and for failing to represent the people of Wisconsin.
Trump said, “Speaker Vos had 17 years to prove to Wisconsin residents that he has their best interest in mind.” The 45th president added, “He does not come close to supporting America First policies, and I do not come close to supporting him.”
Trump has been a frequent critic of Vos, especially following the Wisconsin Supreme Court’s ruling on absentee drop boxes. The assembly speaker has been accused of blocking Republican efforts to decertify the 2020 presidential election.
Trump argues that, based on the drop box ruling and the evidence presented by former Wisconsin Supreme Court Justice Michael Gableman, the 2020 election results should be decertified. Recently, Trump blasted Vos for not prioritizing election integrity. The 45th president has said Vos is “doing nothing” with the evidence presented to him.
“As Speaker of the Assembly, Robin Vos consistently blocked efforts at conducting a full cyber forensic audit of the 2020 Election,” Trump continued, “In fact, his appointee to study Election Fraud in Wisconsin, highly-respected Justice Michael Gableman, found massive Election-changing fraud, abuse, and irregularities. Despite hearing this powerful evidence, Vos refused to do anything to right the wrongs that were done.”
Trump described Steen as a “rising patriotic candidate” and expressed his full support for Steen’s effort to unseat the incumbent assembly speaker.
In addition to Trump’s endorsement of Vos’s primary opponent, Trump said Justice Gableman and Wisconsin Assembly’s Election Committee chairwoman, Janel Brandtjen, have both endorsed Steen.
“Although Vos claims to be a Republican, he is constantly fighting America First efforts and policies,” Trump said.
Trump compared Vos to a Democrat, saying, “The Democrats haven’t even bothered to put up a candidate to run against Vos because he does everything they say-he is their dream candidate-a Republican who does the job of a Democrat.”
Unlike Vos, Trump said Steen is a “motivated Patriot” who is devoted to “making Wisconsin Great Again.” Based on his courageous challenge of Wisconsin’s assembly speaker, Trump claims, “Adam will bravely serve the people of Wisconsin, and bring with him strength, wisdom, and a new patriotism.”
Trump concluded his remarks, stating, “Adam Steen has my Complete and Total Endorsement!”
