Trump also backed Nehls, who recently accused the Capitol Police of spying on his office late last year.

Nehls accused police of entering his office unlawfully after an officer walked inside the first-term lawmaker’s office after seeing the door ajar. Capitol Police maintained it is their job to secure an office if the door is open and no one is inside, citing security concerns.

The inspector general has launched an investigation into the incident.

“Randy is tirelessly working to Secure our Border, Grow our Economy, Cut Regulations, Champion American Energy, Support our Military and Vets, and Defend the Second Amendment. Randy is a strong advocate for our America First agenda. He has my Complete and Total Endorsement!” Trump said.
