Former President of the United States, Donald Trump, has given indications that he would revenge on Republicans who voted to impeach him after January 6 capitol riot.
This is just as he supported an ex-aide Max Miller against an Ohio congressman.
Miller is a 2020 deputy campaign manager and White House advisor challenging Representative Anthony Gonzalez, one of 10 Republicans who voted to impeach Trump.
A statement quoted the former president as saying, “Max Miller is a wonderful person who did a great job at the White House and will be a fantastic congressman.
“Current Rep. Anthony Gonzalez should not be representing the people of the 16th district because he does not represent their interest or their heart.”
According to reports, this is the first endorsement Trump gave to an opposition of a Republican.
Reacting to the development, 32-year-old Miller tweeted, “I will never back down and will never betray my constituents.”
Recall that Trump was impeached on January 13 but the Senate later exonerated him after one month.
The former president has disclosed that he would ensure Republicans regain the House in 2022.
Trump welcomed his acquittal in the US Senate on an impeachment charge he called ‘witch hunt’ and said his political movement “to Make America Great Again has only just begun”.
“Our historic, patriotic and beautiful movement to Make America Great Again has only just begun,” Trump said in a statement issued just moments after the Senate vote.
