Donald Trump blasted RINO Rep. Nancy Mace during a rally in her own state on Saturday.
In a desperate attempt to appeal to Trump supporters, Mace had posted a video in front of Trump Tower, implying he had endorsed her — even though he endorsed her challenger Katie Arrington.
After Trump endorsed her opponent yesterday and called her “absolutely terrible” and “very disloyal,” Rep. Nancy Mace this morning stands in front of Trump Tower and pleads with MAGA to support her, saying she is the only one who can hang onto this swing seat for the GOP. 🍿 pic.twitter.com/IRWQatF6n7

During the rally, Trump called Mace out for the “commercial insinuating I was endorsing her.”
“She’s standing in front of Trump Tower in New York, I’m saying can you believe this?” Trump said. “It was untruthful just like everything else she does.”
“[Mace] joined the phony narrative about January 6th. She voted to hold Steve Bannon in contempt, which was terrible,” Trump said. “She’s totally manipulated by raging Never Trumpers and the radical left Democrats that are poisoning our country. She’s a terrible person, and she has no idea what she’s doing.”
Trump urged voters to ditch Mace and Rep. Tom Rice, saying “dump these grandstanding losers and replace them with two rock solid, America First champions.”

When he endorsed Arrington, Trump said, “Katie Arrington is running against an absolutely terrible candidate,” adding that Mace’s “remarks and attitude…devastating for her community, and not at all representative of the Republican Party to which she has been very disloyal.”
Arrington also spoke at the rally, saying “you know I have a name for Nancy Mace, I call her the Liz Cheney of the South. You like that?… It’s true, it’s true. Everybody, I think we deserve to give this gentleman behind me DJT, one hell of a round of applause. Sir, the reason they’re screaming your name is you’re the best damn president this country’s ever had. Period. End of story. Nobody gets it any better. Be our number 47! You were our Number 46. Be our Number 47!”
Mace has claimed that she can win without Trump.
Last month, Mace told The State “I’m gonna win without him.”
When asked by The State if she was groveling in her video, Mace said “If you call it groveling, I would say you didn’t watch the video.”
“I think it’s important to know what I said, but also what I didn’t say — present tense versus past tense,” she added.
Mace has voted to keep Liz Cheney in her position in the Republican Party and was one of nine Republicans to hold Steve Bannon in contempt of Congress.
She also condemned Trump following the protest on January 6.
