Donald Trump Gives Bill Hagerty His ‘Complete and Total Endorsement’ During Tele-Town Hall Event


U.S. President Donald Trump joined U.S. Senate candidate Bill Hagerty in a brief tele-town hall event Friday and told Tennesseans that Hagerty, if elected, will do great things.

During the nearly nine-minute phone call Trump told listeners that Hagerty had his “complete and total endorsement.”

Hagerty hosted Trump on the call immediately after Tennessee’s polls opened for early voting.

“I had plenty of choices, but Bill Hagerty is someone that I know very well. He was my ambassador to Japan. He was a fantastic ambassador. I’ll never forget. I went to Japan. He knew every person over there. He knew the businessmen. He could pronounce those names that I had a hard time with. It was amazing,” Trump said during the call.

“He was one of the truly great ambassadors that I’ve ever met. And I’ve met some good ones, and I’ve met some very bad ones, to be honest. Bill was so solid, so good. And they still miss him, I will tell you.”

The president urged Tennesseans to vote early.

Trump also said Hagerty will act tough with China and fight for American’s Second Amendment rights.

Hagerty, meanwhile, told Trump that he, if elected, would make himself the president’s “strongest ally there.”

“Here in Tennessee we are working hard to ensure you are re-elected for four more years so we can continue to keep America great. When you look around and you see this angry liberal mob, you see what’s happening in Portland, Oregon. That can’t happen across this country. And Tennesseans are so grateful for your leadership here to make sure it never does,” Hagerty said.

“You have been clear. That with you as our president America will never be a socialist country. Yet that is exactly what this angry liberal mob wants. They seek to destroy the America we know and love. They want to ruin everything that makes this country great. Your leadership is needed more now than ever. And I want to thank you for all you are doing. For us and for this country.”
