Was Trump Pressured into Backing “Swamp Dweller” Strange? Gorka Thinks So!

The million dollar question being asked by Trump supporters everywhere is, “Why is Trump backing Luther Strange for U.S. Senate in Alabama, rather than Roy Moore?”

Could it be that he has been pressured into doing so? Moore is obviously the MAGA candidate and best choice for the job. It only makes sense that Trump would endorse him….but he isn’t.

Moore is already leading in the polls against Strange, and people like Steve Bannon and Sarah Palin are enduring Moore.

President Donald Trump spoke at a rally in Alabama on Friday night, endorsing incumbent Sen. Luther Strange in the state’s Republican primary runoff for the Senate seat vacated by Jeff Sessions.

Many of Trump’s supporters and former administration officials, however, are actively campaigning for Strange’s opponent, former Alabama Supreme Court Chief Justice Roy Moore.

Former Deputy Assistant Dr. Sebastian Gorka thinks that our president has indeed been pressured into endorsing the “swamp dweller.”

It makes sense, given that Trump said he will “campaign like hell” for Moore if he does win on the runoff election on Tuesday. That sounds like backhanded support to me.

Gorka said, “The judge is ahead at least six points right now, ahead of Luther Strange, because the people in Alabama understand that this is the person who represents the agenda of what the president came in to do,” he continued, “It’s about D.C. politics versus representing November the 8th.”

He said if Moore wins, it will actually be a “very great day” for Trump, because he will be able to show the Washington establishment “swamp dwellers” that the American people want him to get back to advancing the “Make America Great Again” agenda that he was elected on.
