Phyllis Schlafly: Trump Is ‘Last Hope For America’
Long-time conservative leader and publicist Phyllis Schlafly believes that the only person who can save America from the precipice of disaster is Donald J. Trump.
In a weekend interview with WND, Schlafly said of the GOP front-runner, “He does look like he’s the last hope [for America]. We don’t hear anybody saying what he’s saying. In fact, most of the people who ought to be lining up with him are attacking him.”
She attributed some of the criticism Trump receives from Republican rivals to their jealousy over the billionaire receiving more air time than they do. The conservative author also said that The Donald’s trademark slogan “Make America Great Again” is very poignant at this point in time.
“The reason he gets so much press coverage is the grassroots are fed up with people who are running things, and they do want a change. They do want people to stand up for America. It really resonates when he says he wants to ‘Make America Great Again,'” she told WND.
Schlafly declared that Americans have been “betrayed” by both parties — citing the omnibus crafted and passed by House Speaker Paul Ryan last week as a prime example — and that Trump’s combative message, in her opinion, is attracting discontented voters from all over the political spectrum.

“It sounds like Donald Trump is the only one who has any fight in him,” she stated. “He will fight for the issues that we really care about and are very hot at the present time, such as the immigration issue. I don’t see anyone else who’s eager to fight.”
