President Trump has made a number of endorsements over the past few months that have sparked controversy among his supporters.
Last week, Trump endorsed House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Ca.) for re-election.
The endorsement confused and angered many of his supporters after the New York Times leaked audio of McCarthy saying that he was going to pressure President Trump to resign in the wake of the unrest at the Capitol on January 6th.
Yesterday, Trump endorsed Katie Britt for Senate in Alabama, giving the cold shoulder to Rep. Mo Brooks (R-Ala.) after their feud over election fraud and the results of the 2020 Presidential election.

Former President Donald Trump on June 10 endorsed Katie Britt for U.S. Senate after he rescinded his endorsement of Rep. Mo Brooks (R-Ala.).
Britt “is a fearless America First warrior,” Trump said in a statement. He said that Britt “Strongly Supports our under siege Second Amendment, Stands Up for Parental Rights, and Will Fight for our Military, our Vets, and Election Integrity.
Britt, a former aide to Sen. Richard Shelby (R-Ala.), said she was thankful for the endorsement.
“President Trump knows that Alabamians are sick and tired of failed, do-nothing career politicians. It’s time for the next generation of conservatives to step up and shake things up in Washington to save the country we know and love for our children and our children’s children,” she said in a statement. “In the Senate, I will fight to defend Alabama’s Christian conservative values, advance the America First agenda, and preserve the American Dream for generations to come.”
Brooks and Britt are currently neck and neck in the Alabama Senate primary. A poll released in mid-May by Cygnal and the Alabama Daily News had Brooks trailing Britt by just 2 percent. The first round of primary voting happened last month. Brooks and Britt will face off in a runoff election on June 22nd.
