Donald Trump, as of right now, is still in control of the Republican party. In order to keep that control, though, he is going to have to help Republicans get elected during the 2020 midterms.
One of the former president’s major hopefuls is former football player Herschel Walker. Walker starred at the University of Georgia back in the early 80’s and Trump believes that can help him carry the state. However, troubling allegations keep emerging against the GOP hopeful that could easily derail his candidacy.
On Thursday, Trump gave Walker his full endorsement. The former president released a statement that read, “He will fight hard for our Second Amendment and Voter Integrity. Herschel Walker will never let you down. He was a great football player and will be an even better U.S. Senator—if that is even possible. He has my Complete and Total Endorsement!”
Just hours later, CNN published a report about a stalking claim made against Walker by a Texas woman in 2002. The woman was a friend of the football player’s ex-wife. According to the report, “The woman, who was in her late 20s at the time she contacted police, confirmed to CNN this week that Walker had threatened her, but asked not to be identified and declined to discuss the specifics of his threats. She stressed that she never dated or had a relationship with Walker.”
Walker’s ex-wife, Cindy Grossman, has also claimed that the GOP hopeful was violent towards her throughout their relationship.
