Donald Trump defends Herschel Walker amid smear campaign
On Tuesday, President Donald Trump expressed his unanimity in defense of Herschel Walker, the Republican nominee for the Georgia Senate. “True greatness in the future has a man like the “fake news media” and the Democrats trying to destroy it, just as he did the sporting greatness of his past.”
According to Fox News, Herschel Walker, best known for his NFL career, denied claims this week that he paid an ex-girlfriend $700 for an abortion. The supposed “bombshell” report comes from The Daily Beast.
“Herschel Walker is being slandered by Democrats and it is postulated that it is being done by the fake news media,” Trump wrote in his statement
“Surprisingly, I’ve heard a lot of horrible and terrible things about his opponent, Raphael Warnock, things that no one should talk about so we don’t. Herschel rightly denies the accusations against him and I have no doubt that he is right.
Walker posted a statement on his Twitter account strongly condemning The Daily Beast’s story on Monday, saying it was “a flat-out lie — and I deny it in the strongest possible terms. It’s another despicable act from a Democrat activist.” , who has aggressively attacked my family since the start of this race and tried to tear me apart.”
Plans to sue the Daily Beast for this defamatory lie. And it will be filed tomorrow morning, Herschel added. Meanwhile, Tran added, “It is very important to our country and the great state of Georgia that Herschel Walker wins this election.”
Walker’s son made headlines for posting tweets in which Christian Walker also suddenly slammed his father after reports of a suspected miscarriage broke Monday evening.
Unsurprisingly, her Twitter posts were in direct contrast to past words of warm support that she wrote for her father in June 2021: “Thank you for all you do and your love for our great country. Can’t wait to see what you do…” Herschel Walker responded to his son’s attack with class. “I love my son no matter what,” he wrote.
He concluded, “Whatever Herschel accomplished, when you’re from Georgia, and you see the name Herschel Walker at the polls, it’s going to be very hard to resist. Don’t!”
