North Carolina Lt. Gov. Mark Robinson, a Republican, just threw his support behind former President Donald Trump in the primary race to see who will be taking on President Joe Biden in next year’s general election, which could make or break the future of the United States. I know we tend to say that every single election is the most important in history, but if you look at where we are culturally and economically right now, it’s very much a true statement.
During a speech delivered at the Faith and Freedom Coalition Conference held in Washington, D.C., where several GOP candidates gave addresses, when Robinson took the stage, he announced he would be backing Trump. The crowd then erupted into loud applause, according to the Daily Caller.
“This nation needs a fighter, someone who is willing to go onto the world stage walking boldly, strongly, waving the American flag, saying, ‘The Americans are here, and we are in charge again and we are going to lead this world into the future with freedom,’” Robinson went on to say during his address. “That is why, on this stage, today, I am endorsing Donald J. Trump.”

Earlier in the month, Trump announced he would be supporting Robinson for governor, going on to describe Robinson as “one of the great stars of the party, one of the great stars in politics.”
That’s a pretty big endorsement from the former president. He doesn’t heap that kind of praise on people lightly either. For him to have said that about Robinson must mean the man is very special.
“An outspoken conservative, Robinson went on to condemn illegal immigration, Russia, and China during his speech. He also urged lawmakers to return to an ‘America First’ ideology. Robinson previously announced he is running in North Carolina’s gubernatorial election in April. Trump has already pledged to endorse Robinson, helping his bid in the GOP primary,” The Washington Examiner reported.
Trump has an impressive record of winning elections when he gives his endorsement and support to a candidate. It bodes well for Robinson to have his backing for governor. And if Trump gives him the seal of approval, that likely means that the lieutenant governor is a man of character and integrity who will stand on his values and principles, allowing them to guide his governance accordingly. Our country needs strong leadership, and that’s something our former president is very good at seeing in people.
As of this writing, Trump has a massive lead in all of the polling that has come out, so much so that unless he does something to cause himself to lose the election, he doesn’t have to worry much about anyone snatching it out of his hands. His only real competition is Florida Republican Gov. Ron DeSantis, and he’s way, way behind in second place.
Still, if either one of these guys gets the nomination, our future looks very bright. It’s been a fairly long time since the GOP has had multiple individuals in the pool of talent that are capable of solid leadership. Trump’s first term changed the political landscape and the DNA of the Republican Party for good.
