Herschel Walker ‘Mad’ at Trump Over Remarks [Video]
Herschel Walker, the former NFL player and current Senate nominee, said he’s “mad” at former President Donald Trump for claiming he convinced Walker to enter the race.
“One thing that people don’t know is President Trump never asked me,” Walker told rapper and Revolt TV host Killer Mike. “I need to tell him that he never asked. I heard it all on television that ‘he’s going to ask Herschel,’ saying Hershel is going to run. President Trump never came out and said ‘Herschel, will you run for that Senate seat?’”
“So, I’m mad at him, because he never asked, but he’s taking credit that he asked,” Walker added.
Walker was victorious in Georgia’s Republican primary election last week. Trump had endorsed the former NFL star early in his Senate campaign.
Walker credited his religious beliefs as his reason for running.
“I prayed about it,” Walker said. “And to be honest with you, I was praying that God would bring somebody else because I’m happy. My life is doing well.”
