On Sunday, Arkansas Governor Sarah Huckabee Sanders (R) reportedly declined to endorse her former employer, former President Donald Trump, for president in 2024.
During an appearance on “Fox News Sunday,” with anchor Shannon Bream, the newly-sworn-in governor was asked if she expected to support Trump in his future presidential effort.
“Your bio, on your official page as Governor, describes you as a ‘trusted confidant of President Trump.’ Have you talked to him about his ’24 run? Will you endorse him in that?” Bream asked.
Sanders lauded the previous president but did not endorse him.
“I love the president, have a great relationship with him. I know our country would be infinitely better off if he was in office right now instead of Joe Biden. But right now, my focus isn’t 2024. It’s focusing here in Arkansas and doing what we can to empower the people of this state, and make sure that I’m delivering on the promises that I laid out over the course of the last two years.” Sanders replied.
Bream pushed Sanders on if she had a timetable for making a choice or if she wanted to see someone else enter the race.
Sanders made headlines after being sworn in last week for signing executive orders aimed at dismantling socialist programs inside the state government.
Sanders issued an executive order prohibiting the use of the term “Latinx” in official publications.
Sanders also issued an executive order aimed at combating leftist brainwashing in schools, notably Critical Race Theory.
