No sooner had former President Donald Trump announced that he was dropping his previous endorsement of Rep. Mo Brooks than the Alabama Republican released a wild statement of his own.
Claiming that the former president had asked him to “rescind” the 2020 presidential election, among other things, Brooks announced what he thought had “prompted President Trump’s ire” in a scorched earth statement on Wednesday.
Earlier, Trump called out Brooks who is running in the Republican primary for one of Alabama’s U.S. Senate seats, saying he “made a horrible mistake recently when he went ‘woke’ and stated, referring to the 2020 Presidential Election Scam, ‘Put that behind you, put that behind you,’ despite the fact that the Election was rife with fraud and irregularities.”

Brooks came back with his own response to the 45th president’s remarks, even claiming that he had let Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell “manipulate him.”
“It’s disappointing that, just like in 2017, President Trump lets Mitch McConnell manipulate him again. Every single negative TV ad against our campaign has come from McConnell and his allies. I wish President Trump wouldn’t fall for McConnell’s ploys, but, once again, he has,” Brooks said.
“I have not changed. I am the only proven America First candidate in this Senate race. I am the only candidate who fought voter fraud and election theft when it counted, between November 3 and January 6,” he added.
“I repeat what has prompted President Trump’s ire. The only legal way America can prevent 2020’s election debacle is for patriotic Americans to focus on and win the 2022 and 2024 elections so that we have the power to enact laws that give us honest and accurate elections,” Brooks continued before going on to accuse Trump of making several requests.

“President Trump asked me to rescind the 2020 elections, immediately remove Joe Biden from the White House, immediately put President Trump back in the White House, and hold a new special election for the presidency. As a lawyer, I’ve repeatedly advised President Trump that January 6 was the final election contest verdict and neither the U.S. Constitution nor the U.S. Code permit what President Trump asks. Period,” Brooks said.
“I’ve told President Trump the truth knowing full well that it might cause President Trump to rescind his endorsement. But I took a sworn oath to defend and protect the U.S. Constitution. I honor my oath. That is the way I am. I break my sworn oath for no man,” he declared.
“I’m still the most conservative candidate in the race. Katie Britt’s campaign is supported and funded by McConnell allies, and she’s still a high taxing, open borders, cheap foreign labor, Chamber of Commerce lobbyist,” Brooks proclaimed.
“There’s only one conservative option in this race, and I am confident that the people of Alabama will see that on Election Day,” he concluded.
Trump had said in his statement Wednesday that he would be making a new endorsement in the Alabama race “in the near future.”
