Former President Donald Trump received a high-profile endorsement from Texas Governor Greg Abbott at an event along the southern border.
Abbott emphasized the need for a president to secure the border and restore law and order, endorsing Trump as the future President of the United States.
Abbott has clashed with the Biden Administration over the southern border crisis, deploying the Texas National Guard and advocating for border security.
Today, I am proud to endorse Donald J. Trump for President.
Now more than ever, America needs a President who will secure the border and prioritize national security.

“We need a president who’s going to secure the border, demanded Abbot.
“We need a president who’s going to restore law and order in the United States of America, not letting these criminals run, ransack over the stores that you see images of almost nightly,” insisted the Texan governor.
“We need a president who’s going to restore world peace, as opposed to this outbreak of warfare under Joe Biden,” Abbot continued.
Abbot exclaimed to the crowd that, “We need Donald J. Trump back as our President of the United States of America.”
“I’m here today to officially proclaim my endorsement for Donald J. Trump, the former and future President of the United States of America,” he announced to a cheering audience.
Trump pledged to secure the border if re-elected and joined Abbott in providing Thanksgiving meals to state border personnel.
This endorsement comes as the second Republican governor, following Arkansas Governor Sarah Huckabee Sanders, recently endorsed Trump, citing the need to return to the policies of the Trump era.
“It’s not a question between right versus left anymore,” said Sanders.
“It’s normal versus crazy, and President Biden and the left are doubling down on crazy,” insisted the Arkansas governor.
“The time has come to return to the normal policies of the Trump era which created a safer, stronger, and more prosperous America, and that’s why I am proud to endorse Donald Trump for President,” announced Sanders.
