Donald Trump endorses Michael Whatley for RNC chair and Lara Trump for co-chair amidst discussions of the current chair's resignation.

Former President Donald Trump has announced his endorsement of Michael Whatley as the new chair of the Republican National Committee (RNC), with his daughter-in-law, Lara Trump, taking the position of co-chair. This move comes while current RNC Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel and Trump have reportedly discussed her stepping down, although the RNC stated McDaniel would not resign or announce any future plans until after the upcoming South Carolina GOP primary.
