Former President Donld Trump is stepping up to defend Georgia Republican Senate nominee Herschel Walker after a report from The Daily Beast accused Walker of paying for a woman’s abortion in 2009.
“Herschel Walker is being slandered and maligned by the Fake News Media and obviously, the Democrats,” Trump said on TRUTH Social.
“Interestingly, I’ve heard many horrible things about his opponent,Raphael Warnock, things that nobody should be talking about, so we don’t. Herschel has properly denied the charges against him, and I have no doubt he is correct,” Trump continued.
“They are trying to destroy a man who has true greatness in his future, just as he had athletic greatness in the past,” Trump added. “It’s very important for our County and the Great State of Georgia that Herschel Walker wins this Election.”
Walker has called the report a “flat-out lie.”
“It is a flat-out lie, and now you know how important this seat is,” Walker said on Fox News’s “Hannity” shortly after the story broke.
“This seat is very important, they’ll do anything to win the seat, lie, because they want to make it about everything else except for the true problems that we have in this country is, there’s inflation, the border wide open, crime, they don’t want to talk about that,” he continued.
