Trump gives endorsement to PA Senate hopeful Dave McCormick

Donald Trump just made a rather intriguing about-face ahead of the 2024 election season.

As The Hill reports, the former president and presumptive GOP nominee announced his endorsement of Republican Pennsylvania Senate hopeful Dave McCormick, someone Trump declined to support the last time he sought the role back in 2022.

Trump endorses McCormick for Senate

The aforementioned announcement was made by Trump during a weekend rally in Schnecksville, Pennsylvania, which drew an enthusiastic crowd.

Explaining the rationale behind his endorsement, Trump began, “I am officially giving my endorsement to David McCormick tonight.”

“He wants to run a good ship. He's a smart guy, who was a very successful guy. He's given up a lot to do this,” a scenario to which Trump himself can certainly relate.

In endorsing McCormick, Trump took aim at the Democratic opponent, incumbent Sen. Bob Casey.

“And I'll tell you want, he's the nominee of the Republican Party. David McCormick, go out and vote for him because Casey doesn't do a damn thing,” Trump stated.

Action-packed rally

It was not just Trump's endorsement of McCormick that made headlines out of the Schnecksville rally, as the former president also took time to address -- practically in real-time -- the attack on Israel launched by Iran, as Fox News noted.

“Before going any further, I want to say God bless the people of Israel. They're under attack right now,” Trump said.

Targeting his November opponent's handling of the situation, Trump added, “That's because we show great weakness. The weakness that we've shown is unbelievable, and it would not have happened if we were in office.”

Suggesting that things would be different had he been declared the winner in 2020, Trump said, “This is an attack that wouldn't have happened. I mean to think about, to think about what you have to go through. Ukraine would never have happened, Israel [being] attacked both October 7th and today would never have happened.”

Whether large portions of the American electorate agree with Trump's assertions and believe that the world as a whole would be far more stable with him at the helm, only time will tell.
