Former President Donald Trump showed support for his former White House Press Secretary, Sarah Huckabee Sanders, this weekend.
During a campaign stop for Sanders’ bid for Governor of Arkansas, none other than President Trump made a surprise appearance.
Sanders took to twitter to celebrate Trump’s visit:

Sanders was Trump’s right-hand press official in the White House until 2019. After her stint in the White House, Sanders took a position with Fox News as an on-air contributor. Her contract with Fox News has since ended and Sanders has focused primarily on her run for Governor of Arkansas.
Trump has supported Sanders run for Governor since the beginning, stating, “I’ll always support those who do the right thing.”
“Sarah is strong on Borders, tough on Crime, and fully supports the Second Amendment and our great law enforcement officers,” Trump said in a statement. “She loves our Military and Veterans — and her home state of Arkansas. Sarah will be a GREAT Governor, and she has my Complete and Total Endorsement!”
Trump insisted Sanders run for the open Governor’s seat since she left the White House in 2019.
Sarah Huckabee Sanders was born in Hope, Arkansas, the same town as former president Bill Clinton, in 1982. She hopes to create somewhat of a political dynasty in Arkansas as her father, Mike Huckabee, is the former Governor of Arkansas.
