Trump Backs This Famous TV Host For Senate

Mehmet Oz

( – In what is already proving to be a controversial endorsement, former President Donald Trump has endorsed Mehmet Oz — Dr. Oz — for the United States Senate seat that is up for grabs this November in Pennsylvania.

A quick scan of social media platforms finds a significant number of conservatives who doubt Oz’s conservative credentials.

Still, with his first choice now out of the race, Trump has thrown his weight behind Oz.

As Breitbart confirms in “Donald Trump Endorses Mehmet Oz in Pennsylvania U.S. Senate Race“:

“Former President Donald Trump endorsed celebrity doctor Mehmet Oz in Pennsylvania’s U.S. Senate Race on Saturday after his initial pick, Sean Parnell, dropped out amid a contentious custody battle with his estranged wife last fall.”

In endorsing Oz, Trump said in a written statement:

“The Great Commonwealth of Pennsylvania has a tremendous opportunity to Save America by electing the brilliant and well-known Dr. Mehmet Oz for the United States Senate. I have known Dr. Oz for many years, as have many others, even if only through his very successful television show.”

Trump added:

“Dr. Oz is Pro-Life, very strong on Crime, the Border, Election Fraud, our Great Military, and our Vets, Tax Cuts, and will always fight for and support our under-siege Second Amendment. He will ensure America will become Energy Independent again. Dr. Oz also passionately believes in high-quality education and protecting parent involvement throughout the process.”


“Perhaps most importantly, I believe that Mehmet Oz will be the one most able to win the General Election against a Radical Left Democrat looking to do unthinkable harm to our Country. Women, in particular, are drawn to Dr. Oz for his advice and counsel. I have seen this many times over the years. They know him, believe in him, and trust him. Likewise, he will do very well in Philadelphia and Pittsburgh, where other candidates will just not be accepted.”
