In a post to Truth Social (via Politico’s Meredith McGraw), the former president acknowledged that Cawthorn made some “foolish mistakes,” but argued those mistakes should not be held against him.
“At 18 years of age, Madison Cawthorn, the now 26 year old Congressman from the Great State of North Carolina, went through a life changing event the likes of which, fortunately, few people will ever have to endure. Trump wrote. “In just seconds, he lost the use of the lower half of his body, a traumatic experience to say the least. When Madison was first elected to Congress, he did a great job. Recently, he made some foolish mistakes, which I don’t believe he’ll make again … let’s give Madison a second chance!”
