Former President Donald Trump endorsed Michael Whatley as the next head of the Republican National Committee (RNC) and Lara Trump as co-chair.

In a notable move within the Republican party, Donald Trump has endorsed Michael Whatley to be the next head of the RNC and his daughter-in-law Lara Trump for the position of co-chair. Trump has previously expressed that it was time for the incumbent RNC chair, Ronna McDaniel, to step aside. These endorsements come as Trump hinted at making recommendations for changes at the RNC following the South Carolina primary on February 24.
