Former President Trump used Saturday in a rally in Anchorage, Alaska to target Senator Lisa Murkowski (R-Alaska), who will be re-elected in November, claiming that “she is worse than a Democrat.”

While Trump has been able to campaign for several candidates he has supported, he focused much of his speech on Murkowski, calling her “a worthless senator” shortly after starting his stump speech.

“She’s a creature of the Washington swamp, but much worse than that, and a tool of a corrupt establishment, the likes of which we have never seen. The fake news media loves her,” Trump said.

The former president criticized Murkowski for resisting the confirmation of Judge Brett Kavanaugh, while joining two other Republican senators and all 50 Democrats to vote for Supreme Court confirmation of Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson.

He also criticized her for voting for bipartisan gun safety legislation passed in the wake of high-profile shootings in Buffalo, NY, and Uvalde, Texas.

This is your precious chance to dump the horrific RINO Senator Lisa Murkowski, who is worse than a Democrat. She’s worse than a Democrat,” Trump said, using the acronym for “Republican in name only.”

Trump-backed Alaska Senate candidate Kelly Tshibaka called Murkowski “Biden’s CEO,” adding that she was his “chief enablen officer.”

Murkowski has sparked Trump’s ire after she and six other Republican senators voted to convict the former president after the Jan. 6, 2021 Capitol riot. In June 2021, he approved Tshibaka and hosted one of the most watched Senate races for Nov.

Trump’s rally in Alaska comes ahead of the August 16 primary. Cook Political Report rates the Senate race as “solid Republican,” meaning whoever wins the GOP primary will be considered the heavy favorite in November.

The former president also praised former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin (right), who is running for the state’s only seat in the House and is one of Trump’s supporters.

“She will be a real fighter for your state and for the country,” Trump said at his meeting on Palin.

‘Sir, we need you back. Four more years, four more years,” Palin said as he took the stage next to Trump. “And President Trump, you are home.”

Trump also dabbled in a slew of other topics, including Elon Musk’s decision to buy his Twitter deal and terminate Tesla’s CEO’s “rotten” contract.

“You know [what] did he say last? “Oh, I’ve never voted for a Republican.” I said, “I didn’t know that.” He told me he voted for me,” Trump said. Musk has made multiple comments about his party choices in recent months, saying in May that he “may have never voted for a Republican” and tweeting last month that he had voted for a Republican for the “first time.”

“So he’s another bulls-t artist, but he won’t buy it. He’s not going to buy it. Although he may be later, who knows what will happen? He has a pretty bad contract.”

The comments come after Musk tweeted last month that he hadn’t decided who to support for president in 2024, but leaned toward Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (R). Rumor has it that DeSantis is considering running for president and could challenge Trump in a GOP primaries if both decide to nominate the party.
