Trump says that rep. Elise Stefanik may become president in 2028 at the Palm Beach fundraiser

Former President Donald Trump garnered praise for the rep. Elise Stefanik during a fundraiser in Florida Tuesday night and said the House GOP Conference chief could be commander-in-chief in 2028.

Trump helped raise $ 3.2 million for the New York Republican, his Political Action Committee and other GOP candidates on Capitol Hill with the event at his Mar-a-Lago resort in Palm Beach.

“I would like to congratulate Elise on her success. Man, she’s moving fast. It means at this rate that she will be president in about 6 years, ”Trump said of the 37-year-old president of the House Republican Conference.

“She’s always been a friend, and people would say she’s upward mobile. She’s going to Washington as a young beautiful woman who took over, and suddenly she’s a rocket ship, she’s the boss. She’s been a great boss , a strong boss. “
