Lauren Boebert Announces Meeting With Former President Donald Trump In July

Colorado Rep. Lauren Boebert has announced she is going to be having a meeting with former President Donald Trump in July, leaving many folks to wonder whether or not this little get-together could have anything to do with the congresswoman running for higher office.

“I remain close with President Trump. And I guess not ‘remain’ — so I’ve always been close with him in my heart, but now I am close with him, which is really nice. I’ll be going back out and seeing him again in July,” Boebert said during her interview with the Washington Examiner just before she gave an address at the Western Conservative Summit over the weekend. “He’s still fighting harder than ever for America.”

When she asked about the purpose behind the meeting, Boebert declined to provide further details, noting it’s “just a meeting.”

She was then asked if the meeting might have to do with a potential run for higher office, prompting her to respond by saying, “No, no, no,” adding she’s going to stay focused on “where I’m at right now.”

The planned meeting signals Trump’s continued influence in the confrontational conservative wing of the Republican Party. A staunch Trump supporter and political firebrand, Boebert first met the former president in person at a 2020 Independence Day event in South Dakota, and she has since traveled to Trump’s Mar-a-Lago resort in South Florida for various fundraisers and events.

Boebert’s fiery political style draws the ire of Democrats and makes her the target of confrontational anarchist activists (who should “get a job,” she said).

Most recently, she faced backlash for voting against a bill to give gold medals to U.S. Capitol Police officers who were injured in the Jan. 6 riot. Uniformed Capitol Police officers showed up at her congressional office to demand an explanation, she said.

Boebert recently caught some flack for voting against the bill because the Democrats had added a reference to Officer Billy Evans, who was killed after being rammed by a vehicle being driven by a suspected follower of the Nation of Islam, which the congresswoman noted had nothing to do with what happened on Jan. 6.

“Make something else for him,” Boebert went on to say. “Why are we drumming this up more and more? And that’s all they want,” she added. “If you turn on CNN, all you see is Jan. 6. You don’t see what’s happening in Portland. You don’t see what’s happening in Seattle.”

Boebert is a constant source of frustration for the left because she doesn’t simply vote along party lines, which would make her far easier to hate and fight against.

Instead, she often follows her own personal convictions and principles. For example, she voted in favor of making Juneteenth a holiday, despite 14 Republicans voting against it.

“I voted for it because, I mean, I like freedom,” Boebert declared. “We’re not replacing Independence Day with it.” But she then added that she was not a fan of the bill’s rushed process.
