Former President Donald Trump on Monday called Republican National Committee (RNC) Chair Ronna McDaniel his “friend” and said he is waiting until after the South Carolina primary to make a decision on “recommendations for RNC Growth.”
Trump’s comments came in a Truth Social post on Monday evening after he suggested to Fox Business’s Maria Bartiromo in an interview aired Sunday that “changes” in the RNC were likely when she asked about McDaniel’s performance.
In his post, the 45th president touted “things are looking great in the Presidential Race of 2024 against Crooked Joe Biden” before turning his attention to McDaniel and the RNC:
In my successful run in 2016, the State of Michigan really came through – First time in Decades that it was won by a Republican, and it was headed up by my friend Ronna McDaniel. Ronna is now Head of the RNC, and I’ll be making a decision the day after the South Carolina Primary as to my recommendations for RNC Growth.
In their interview on Sunday, Bartiromo said the “RNC doesn’t seem to be so strong” and went on to add it is “seeking credit lines.”
