President Donald Trump’s official statement:
In February, the 45th President warned sitting Republican lawmakers that he could back primary challengers if he deems them to be insufficiently loyal.
“Where necessary and appropriate, I will back primary rivals who espouse Making America Great Again and our policy of America First. We want brilliant, strong, thoughtful, and compassionate leadership,” President Trump said in a statement at the time.
