The country star, awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom by Barack Obama in 2013, said she’s not only supporting Trump but that she’d like to hit the campaign trail with him. This, despite the fact that she’s 83 years young.
“Trump has sold me – what more can I say?” Lynn told a Reuters reporter.
Other Republicans can’t live up to the real estate mogul, Lynn said, but Texas Senator Ted Cruz would be her second choice.
However, she said: “When you’re advertising for the best, forget the rest!”
Lynn added that she wants to campaign for him.
“I just think he’s the only one who’s going to turn this country around,” she said, but added she had no plans to try to contact Trump herself. “I’m going to let him call me.”
Lynn said that her crowds are generally supportive of her comments on Trump, and took a shot at Hillary Clinton in the process.
“When you get up there and try to say you want to see Hillary Clinton win, that wouldn’t go over so big,” she said.
Lynn still carries a lot of influence in the heartland of America. Could this possibly help Trump in the southern states?
