( – On Sunday, Rep. Nancy Mace (South Carolina) defended her recent Trump endorsement despite her past criticism of the former President, arguing that, under President Joe Biden, the country has been worse off.  

Speaking on NewsNation’s “The Hill Sunday,” Mace described that “after almost four years of Biden,” seeing the “overwhelming support” for former President Donald Trump wasn’t “that difficult.”  

Blake Burman, anchor for NewsNation, highlighted that Mace’s remarks were a complete flip from remarks she made after the January 6th, 2021, insurrection after Trump lost the 2020 election. At that time, the South Carolina Republican claimed the GOP would need to be “rebuilt,” claiming Trump’s “entire legacy” had been “wiped out.”  

When Burman suggested Mace could have given any GOP candidate her primary endorsement, she insisted that after “three-and-a-half years” of Biden, and observing the country’s decline, it made her decision to support Trump “pretty easy.”  

She explained her support stemmed from the U.S. being “safer” and “more prosperous” under Trump, with better wages and lower inflation.

Mace also noted that there weren’t “endless wars,” suggesting that under Trump, Hamas would not have invaded Israel, nor would Russia have invaded Ukraine.  

Earlier this year, the South Carolina Republican also seemingly made peace with the January 6th insurrection and the former President’s role in it, taking to X (formerly Twitter) to explain that while she didn’t always see “eye to eye perfectly with any candidate,” the GOP had to “unite behind” its nominee to “reverse all the damage” of the Biden administration.
