TUBERVILLE ATTENDING PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP’S REPUBLICAN NOMINATION ACCEPTANCE SPEECH AT THE WHITE HOUSE
Republican U.S. Senate candidate and retired NCAA football coach Tommy Tuberville is among the select group that will join President Donald Trump in Washington on Thursday as he accepts the Republican Party’s nomination for another term in office.
The president, who is scheduled to give his acceptance speech from the South Lawn of the White House on Thursday night, extended the invitation to Tuberville earlier this week.
“President Trump’s reelection is our nation’s last line of defense against the Socialism and fringe beliefs that the modern Democrat Party represents,” Tuberville said. “If liberals like Joe Biden, Nancy Pelosi, Bernie Sanders, and Doug Jones are allowed to take control of our country, the freedoms that Americans have enjoyed for almost 250 years will be eroded and taken away virtually overnight.
“I believe that Donald Trump is the greatest president to serve in my lifetime, and over the past several months, I have come to know him as a friend, so being on hand as he accepts our party’s nomination will be a humbling and historic experience,” Tuberville continued.
Trump formally endorsed Tuberville’s Senate candidacy in March and hosted him aboard the Air Force One presidential aircraft during a trip to Texas in June.
On the night Tuberville won the Republican runoff election, Trump tweeted a congratulatory message that said, “[Coach Tuberville] will be a great Senator for the incredible people of Alabama,” and he added “[Doug Jones] is a terrible Senator who is just a Super Liberal puppet for Schumer & Pelosi. Represents Alabama poorly. On to November 3rd.”
Jones twice voted to remove the president from office during the partisan impeachment effort launched by Speaker Nancy Pelosi and House Democrats, and the interim senator also opposed the successful confirmation of Brett Kavanaugh, a Trump nominee to the U.S. Supreme Court.
