Donald Trump announced Friday morning that he will attend the funeral of his friend, supporter and ally Phyllis Schlafly as she is laid to rest Saturday in her beloved Saint Louis.
On Monday, Mr. Trump released this heartwarming condolence:
Phyllis Schlafly is a conservative icon who led millions to action, reshaped the conservative movement, and fearlessly battled globalism and the ‘kingmakers’ on behalf of America’s workers and families. I was honored to spend time with her during this campaign as she waged one more great battle for national sovereignty.
I was able to speak with her by phone only a few weeks ago, and she sounded as resilient as ever. Our deepest prayers go out to her family and all her loved ones. She was a patriot, a champion for women, and a symbol of strength. She fought every day right to the end for America First.
Her legacy will live on in the movement she led and the millions she inspired.
-Donald J. Trump
