EXCLUSIVE: Rep. Claudia Tenney endorsed former President Trump on Friday, telling Fox News Digital that he is “the only candidate” who can restore the United States to “prosperity and security.”

Tenney, R-N.Y., told Fox News Digital on Friday that during his first term, Trump’s “visionary and bold leadership secured the border, put our economy in overdrive by lowering taxes, cutting unnecessary regulations and unleashing American energy independence.”

In contrast, Tenney described President Biden’s tenure as “pathetic and feckless.”

“Illegal migrants are flooding our communities, crime is rampant and unchecked, Bidenflation is crushing families and dangerous and costly wars are breaking out across the globe,” Tenney said.
