Australian Senator Expresses Support for Donald Trump in Letter

Victorian Senator Ralph Babet has declared his support for U.S. presidential candidate Donald Trump in a letter reposted on Mr. Trump’s Truth Social account. 

The United Australia Party senator penned the letter to the former Republican president wishing him success and cheering him on in his 2024 presidential campaign. 

“I have always been an admirer of the United States. But to see the deterioration in America over the past four years has been truly heartbreaking,” Mr. Babet wrote.

“Watching the way the Biden administration has brought the U.S. into disrepute around the world through weak leadership, both at home and abroad, has been devastating for lovers of freedom everywhere,” he continued.

“I cannot begin to imagine the forces aligned against you, but I am confident that the American people will see through all of that to elect you once again as your president,” wrote Mr. Babet to Mr. Trump. 

The United Australia Party—formerly known as Clive Palmer’s United Australia Party and the Palmer United Party—piggy-backed on Mr. Trump’s “Make America Great Again” campaign with its own slogan, “Make Australia Great Again” in 2018 with the billionaire Mr. Palmer even being dubbed “Australia’s Trump” at the time.

However, Mr. Babet sees a Trump presidency as a way to restore America as a “beacon of freedom.”

Trump Makes History 

Mr. Trump has been embroiled in court battles ahead of the U.S. presidential election becoming the first president to be arrested in 234 years.

Mr. Trump is now out on a US$200 bail after turning himself in in August on felony charges in connection with efforts to overturn the 2020 presidential election, marking his fourth arrest so far. 

He faces 34 felony counts in over allegations regarding porn star Stormy Daniels in Florida and faces 13 felony counts for alleged election interference in Georgia. 

However, Mr. Trump maintains the charges against him are a “witch hunt” and has told the judge presiding over his criminal racketeering case to move it to federal court. 

“They rigged the 2020 election and now they’re trying to do the same thing all over again by rigging the most important election in our country’s history, the 2024 election,” said Mr. Trump in a public announcement. 

Mr. Trump remains the frontrunner to secure the Republican nomination and will likely face Joe Biden in the 2024 presidential election.  

Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis, Vivek Ramaswamy, former Vice President Mike Pence, former South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley, and South Carolina Sen. Tim Scott are among the other 13 Republican nomination candidates. 

Meanwhile, Robert F. Kennedy Jr., current President Joe Biden, and Marianne Williamson are running in the Democratic primary.

U.S. polls show a tight race across the country if it came down to a Trump vs. Biden election. Mr. Trump is ahead nationally by 1 percent, according to a 270toWin Polling Average. He leads in 10 states while Mr. Biden leads in 11. 

As for Australian public opinion, 58 percent say they have some or a lot of confidence in President Biden, an 11-point decrease from 2021, according to a Lowly Institute poll. 

That is also a 30 percent increase in a vote of confidence for Mr. Biden than in former President Trump in 2020.
