Former President Trump has endorsed Dr. Mehmet Oz for the U.S. Senate seat in Pennsylvania, a Saturday announcement states.
“President Donald J. Trump announces his endorsement of Dr. Oz,” a tweet from Trump’s spokesperson states.
“The Great Commonwealth of Pennsylvania has a tremendous opportunity to Save America by electing the brilliant and well-known Dr. Mehmet Oz for the United States Senate,” a statement from Trump says. “I have known Dr. Oz for many years, as have many others, even if only through his very successful television show. He has lived with us through the screen and has always been popular, respected, and smart.”
Trump also said that Oz is “very strong” on issues such as abortion and tax cuts.
“Dr. Oz is Pro-Life, very strong on Crime, the Border, Election Fraud, our Great Military, and our vets, Tax Cuts, and will always fight for and support our under-siege Second Amendment. He will ensure America will become Energy Independent again,” Trump said.
Oz responded to Trump’s endorsement in a statement on Saturday, saying that he’s proud to receive his endorsement.
“President Trump carefully reviewed all of the candidates for U.S. Senate. Everyone, especially David McCormick – a pro-China, Wall Street insider, wanted this endorsement. But President Trump wisely endorsed me because I’m a Conservative who will stand up to Joe Biden and the woke Left,” Oz said. “President Trump knows how critical it is to change the kinds of people we send to Washington. I’m ready to fight. I thank him for that, and I am proud to receive his endorsement.”
Oz also said that “no one” will fight as hard as him at President Biden’s policies.
