Donald Trump endorsed Dr. Mehmet Oz’s candidacy for US Senator from Pennsylvania, and right-wingers are split over what to think about it. On the one hand, many have grown to like Dr. Oz from watching him on TV over the years, as they did Trump, and believe that alone is a worthy credential for a US lawmaker. However, other right-wingers are upset with Trump for endorsing Oz as they don’t think the doctor is conservative enough. A former Trump-backed candidate, Sean Parnell, tweeted, “I have enormous respect for President Trump. I was honored to have his endorsement in PA. Twice. But I’m disappointed by this. Oz is the antithesis of everything that made Trump the best president of my lifetime—he’s the farthest thing from America First & he’d be awful for PA.” Breitbart News's Joel Pollak wrote, “this endorsement could divide MAGA in the only way that matters: he could lose America First conservatives over it.” Since Trump isn’t policy-driven, he likely doesn’t care about the reasons why many conservatives oppose Oz’s candidacy. However, the divide could be enough to prevent Mehmet from winning the seat in Pennsylvania or maybe even the Republican nomination.
