In a tweet shortly after midnight on Wednesday, Trump said that Laura Loomer has “a great chance against a Pelosi puppet” in November, referring to Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.). Loomer’s Democratic opponent, Rep. Lois Frankel (D-Fla.), is favored to win the district.

Loomer was banned from ride-sharing apps Uber and Lyft in 2017 after a public tweet threat in which she told the companies that she “never want[s] to support another Islamic immigrant driver,” along with others calling for “someone… to create a non Islamic form of @uber or @lyft.”

“Isn’t it ironic how the twitter moment used to celebrate ‘women, LGBTQ, and minorities’ is a picture of Ilhan Omar?” she added in a 2018 message shortly before being banned from Twitter as well, referring to the Democratic Minnesota congresswoman. “Ilhan is pro Sharia Ilhan is pro-FGM Under Sharia, homosexuals are oppressed & killed. Women are abused & forced to wear the hijab. Ilhan is anti Jewish.”
