In the video, Trump congratulates Masters for a recent debate performance, reminding him to stick with those who hold the same beliefs he does about election fraud. Masters replied that it was great to put Senator Kelly “on the ropes,” and promised not to let the voters down. He called out the RINOs in Washington for not believing he could match up against a sitting senator. Trump again reminded him, “he was terrible, you were great.”
There was even a bit of fundraising. Trump asked Masters if Peter Thiel, a notorious Republican campaign donor, was helping with funds in the runup to the election. Masters said Thiel has “been great,” For a campaign that had little chance just a few months ago, the excitement of the report and the momentum from Trump’s call could be just what he needs to push past the finish line ahead of his competitor.
