Far-right social media influencer Laura Loomer confronted Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis, leading to a video that was promoted by former President Donald Trump.

Loomer’s close ties to Trump have raised concerns among allies and advisers, as she has a history of promoting conspiracy theories and extreme views.

Despite criticism, Trump has publicly supported Loomer and even considered hiring her for a campaign role. (Trending: Hunter Biden’s Art Scheme Exposed By GOP Probe)

Some fear her association with Trump could be used against him in the general election.

“He’s going to lose,” Loomer said of DeSantis. “President Trump is going to kick his a– on Monday, Jan. 15. And that’s it for Ron. You killed your political career and I hope you’re happy. You just got Loomered, —–.”

“Everyone who works for him thinks she’s a liability,” a Trump ally stated.

“And if you think that you’re more important than President Trump, then you have some kind of, like, delusional personality disorder,” Loomer said of an ex who felt she was too focused on the former President. “I have to say that was the end of that relationship. President Trump’s my number-one priority right now.”

“Thank you, Laura!” Trump posted.

“At the end of the day, they can’t keep Trump from doing some of these crazier things,” a DeSantis ally said.

“The only people who are worried about President Trump embracing me are people who are disloyal to him and have something to hide. I’ve been nothing but a net positive for President Trump,” Loomer said.

“There seems to be a lot of people who are very triggered by the idea of President Trump having a loyal friend who looks out for him and doesn’t ask for anything in return,” she added.

Loomer’s confrontational tactics and controversial statements have sparked both support and criticism within political circles.

Trump “reached another low over the weekend when he once again met up with extremist and self-described white nationalist Laura Loomer — for at least the second time this year,” the Democratic National Committee wrote previously.

“This is the state of the 2024 GOP primary: With Republicans in no rush to condemn him, Donald Trump continues to surround himself with some of the most far-right, extreme members of the party,” they added. “Never hire or do business with a liar,” Marjorie Taylor Greene said. “Liars are toxic and poisonous to everything they touch. I’ll make sure [Trump] knows.”
