Donald Trump Gets Endorsement From South Dakota Governor

Daily Report September 09,2023

Former President Donald Trump continued his dominance of the GOP presidential race on Friday after South Dakota Republican Gov. Kristi Noem endorsed him for 2024.

Noem announced her endorsement of Trump in a Friday night rally in Rapid City, South Dakota, at the South Dakota Republican Party’s (GOP) Monumental Leaders Rally.

“It is my honor to present to you the man in the arena,” Noem said of Trump as she introduced the former president. “He is a man of significance. He is the leader, the fighter that our country needs. He has my full and complete endorsement for president of the United States of America. I will do everything I can to help him win and save this country.”

The governor revealed that South Dakota GOP Chairman John Wiik organized the rally and invited GOP candidates vying for the Republican presidential ticket. However, Trump was the only one of those candidates who turned up at the rally.

“Chairman John Wiik had this fantastic idea to bring Republicans in our state together to rally us around our shared values and principles,” Noem explained. “I loved the idea and told him I would do what I could to help. We started discussing inviting all the candidates running to be President of the United States. Tim Scott was asked… and he declined. Vivek Ramaswamy was invited, and he turned the chairman down. Other candidates were asked, and all told us they had better things to do. But when President Trump was invited to come be with you tonight, he said, ‘I’ll be there!’”

Noem maintained that Trump’s decision to show up at the rally is one of the reasons why everyone loves him. The governor added that Trump does not wait for consultants or the media to tell him Priorities and what is important.

“To him (Trump), every American is worth fighting for,” she added. “No one is better than anyone else. No one deserves to be treated differently than anyone else. And he will never forget about us, the little people in the little states that are the backbone of this country. He shows up for every American and fights for us every.”

Noem, who has been touted as a potential Trump running mate in 2024, added that the former president is the only person she trusts to do what needs to be done regarding the border and illegal immigration.
