Former President Donald Trump has reportedly said to a group of people at Mar-a-Lago that:
“[Laura Loomer] likes me, so she’s okay. But yeah, she is f***ing ugly as hell.”
Trump recently stated that he expected to be arrested in connection with the investigation by the Manhattan District Attorney soon. He went on to call for protests as New York law enforcement prepares for a possible indictment. A photo of Donald Trump’s plane taking off to fly to New York for his arrest was also leaked.
The controversy sparked around the hush money payment that Cohen admitted that he made to Stormy Daniels during the fall of Trump’s 2016 White House bid to keep her from coming forward about an alleged affair she had with the then-candidate. Trump has denied the affair. Previously, TMZ reported that Daniels was experiencing the impact of Trump’s potential impending arrest and reportedly strengthening her security after receiving multiple threats.
Trump is reportedly asking aides to find a role in his campaign for Laura Loomer, a former congressional candidate, and far-right activist with a lengthy history of anti-Muslim comments.
The New York Times reported that Trump met with Loomer recently and has directed advisers to give her a position supporting his candidacy, potentially with the campaign itself or with a super PAC aligned with the former president’s 2024 White House bid.
