Texas Governor Greg Abbott recently made headlines by announcing his endorsement of former President Donald Trump at a ceremony dedicated to honoring the brave service members stationed at the border. Governor Abbott passionately expressed the need for a president who would restore world peace, contrasting it with what he perceives as an outbreak of warfare under the current administration.

During the event in the border town of Edinburg, Mr. Trump graciously accepted the governor’s endorsement and also took the opportunity to serve meals to Texas National Guard soldiers and Texas Department of Public Safety troopers, as well as other individuals who tirelessly work on the border, particularly during the Thanksgiving period.
Governor Abbott used the platform to emphasize the importance of a president who would effectively secure the border and restore law and order in the United States. He tirelessly advocated for a shift away from what he views as the chaos and criminality that has seemingly become a regular occurrence under the current leadership. In his impassioned speech, he warned of the potential terror threat that he believes is looming due to President Biden’s border policies.
As the event unfolded, former President Trump also added his voice to the rally, expressing his gratitude for Governor Abbott’s endorsement and affirming his support for the governor’s upcoming reelection bid in 2022. In his characteristic style, Mr. Trump vowed to address the border situation in Texas and beyond, reassuring the governor that the border would no longer be a source of worry during his administration.
This endorsement further emphasizes Mr. Trump’s enduring popularity within the Republican Party, with reports indicating that he continues to outperform his GOP opponents in the polls. As the former president maintains his position as the frontrunner for the Republican nomination, his unwavering dedication to “Make America Great Again” appears to resonate with many, even surpassing President Biden’s appeal in some instances.
