Laura Loomer, banned on much of social media, wins Republican primary and praise from Trump - 2020-08-19
A far-right online provocateur whose hate speech got her banned from many social media platforms won her Republican primary on Tuesday and will challenge Democratic Rep. Lois Frankel for Congress in November.
Laura Loomer also won praise from U.S. President Donald Trump early Wednesday, who retweeted several posts on her victory and said: "Great going Laura. You have a great chance against a [Nancy] Pelosi puppet!"
Trump's new official residence, his Mar-a-Lago resort, is in Loomer's district.
