Former President Donald Trump took to Truth Social on May 16 to defend Rep. Madison Cawthorn (R-N.C.) ahead of North Carolina’s May 17 primary, calling on Republicans to “give Madison a second chance” despite a series of scandals embroiling the junior lawmaker.
In recent months, Cawthorn has come under fire for photos purportedly showing him in compromising situations in what appear to be party settings, as well as for comments he made about Ukraine and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy.
The comments drew attacks from other lawmakers on Capitol Hill and from GOP challengers hoping to win Cawthorn’s seat.
Though he has said in the past that he has been “totally weirded out” by some of Cawthorn’s scandals, Trump has now come out in favor of Cawthorn’s reelection bid.
