President Donald Trump took to Twitter Monday morning to endorse Lacy Johnson, the man running to defeat Democrat Congresswoman Ilhan Omar in the fall.
And I’m Endorsing you also Lacy, you truly deserve it. You are doing a great job, and Omar is a disaster who wants much higher taxes, hates our Military & our Vets, demands Open Borders, and is fighting to take away our great 2nd Amendment. Good luck Lacy! https://t.co/RunIPCbTyc— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) May 4, 2020

Johnson spoke with Townhall's Cortney O'Brien late last year about his goals to defeat Omar.
"She’s a socialist," Johnson said. "She’s anti-American sovereignty."
He added that Omar is "anti-American security, anti-semitic, and anti-Israel," and he "looks forward" to exposing her agenda on a debate stage, should she accept the challenge.
"She’s got a lot of crazy ideas when it comes to climate change and things like that," Johnson said. "I’ve done my research. I think they’re all ready to be shredded. So I'm looking forward to debating."
Johnson says he's pining after two particular categories of voters. First, there are the "concerned Minnesotans who see what Omar is doing and think she’s almost an embarrassment to the district and state, and they’re looking for someone to run against her." That demographic, he said, has provided "some of the most passionate responses" to Omar's radical agenda.
The other group Johnson is fighting for are the open-minded individuals who don't have a stomach for partisan politics. Reaching them will require "a precise political strategy" that lets these voters get to know him, he muses.
