Minutes before Trump called Texas attorney general candidate Louie Gohmert a longtime friend, he endorsed his opponent, incumbent Ken Paxton, at the “Save America Rally” on Saturday in Conroe, Texas.

Trump commended Paxton as a “brave,” “popular,” and “strong” leader who has “really led the way,” adding that he has his “complete and total endorsement.” He also acknowledged several other Republican attorneys general, including Eric Schmitt of Missouri and Leslie Rutledge of Arkansas, before acknowledging Gohmert.

“Louie Gohmert, what a wonderful guy,” Trump said during his speech. “This is a man who’s been a friend of mine from day one. Thank you, Louie. I just saw you sitting there. He’s very distinctive with that beautiful face.”
