Trump is showing that he’s still about shaking up the status quo in Washington D.C.
The word on the street is that Trump will be using his time leading up to his much-anticipated run in 2024 as a way to start stacking the House and Senate with GOP members who carry the MAGA torch.
And he’s got one heavy hitter who he’s got his eye on.
And President Trump just sent shockwaves through DC and beyond by urging Pro-Trump NFL legend Hershel Walker to run for the Senate.

Former President Donald Trump on Wednesday urged retired pro-football running back Herschel Walker to run for the U.S. Senate next year in Georgia.
Walker, 59, was born in the Peach State and played college football at the University of Georgia. He would be an instant favorite for the Republican nomination.
Trump said in an emailed statement from his Save America PAC: “Wouldn’t it be fantastic if the legendary Herschel Walker ran for the United States Senate in Georgia? He would be unstoppable, just like he was when he played for the Georgia Bulldogs, and in the NFL. He is also a GREAT person. Run Herschel, run!”
Walker, an avid Trump supporter during his presidency, would face Democratic Sen. Raphael Warnock, who won a special election in January to fill out the remainder of retired GOP Sen. Johnny Isakson’s six-year term.
Walker would bring name recognition to the contest and could boost GOP support among black voters, who make up almost a third of the electorate in Georgia.
Walker is the 1982 Heisman Trophy winner and played in the old USFL and NFL over 15 years, first with the USFL New Jersey Generals, owned by Trump, and later in the NFL for the Vikings, Eagles and Giants.
We hope and pray that Herschel heeds Trump’s words and runs for office.
Wouldn’t that just be the most epic sight ever?!
