Elise Stefanik, Trump’s senior adviser, condemns the NYT for portraying Trump as suspicious of Stefanik

Rep. Elise Stefanik (R-NY) and former President Donald Trump’s 2024 senior adviser Boris Epshteyn criticized the New York Times Sunday for portraying Trump in a hit Saturday article as suspicious of the New York state congresswoman, despite Stefanik and Trump talking to each other several times a week.

the Time The article, which cited two unnamed sources close to Trump, alleged that the former president did not trust Stefanik, a claim that Stefanik’s team and Trump adviser Boris Epshteyn told Breitbart News that it was fake news.

The relationship between Stefanik and Trump has emerged as one of the strongest alliances within the America First movement. Trump endorsed Stefanik in 2021 to replace Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY) as GOP conference chair. “Elise Stefanik is a far superior choice, and she has my FULL and TOTAL endorsement for GOP conference chair,” Trump said. “Elise is a tough and smart communicator!”

Stefanik, as the third-highest-ranked Republican in the House, is also the highest-ranked Republican to endorse Trump’s 2024 campaign. “Republican voters determine who the leader of the Republican Party is and it’s very clear that President Trump is the leader of the Republican Party,” she told Breitbart News in November.

In a Breitbart News exclusive, senior Trump adviser Boris Epshteyn defended Stefanik from the Time‘baseless’ libel as one of the strongest supporters of America’s first moment.

“Rep. Elise Stefanik is one of President Trump’s staunchest supporters and one of the staunchest champions of the America First movement,” Epshteyn said. “I’m proud to have helped Elise defeat Liz Cheney to become President. from the GOP conference and working with her during the 2020 presidential campaign. The baseless slander against Elise Stefanik is a great testament to her strength, impact, and reputation.

Team Elise executive director Alex Degrasse called Stefanik’s relationship with Trump completely solid and denied the allegation in the Time‘ as a mere ‘lie’ of the ‘Socialists and their sycophant press stenographers’.

“Middle-aged men in the mainstream media are obsessed with Congresswoman Stefanik and will lie to smear her just because she’s an effective Republican and a champion of President Trump’s agenda,” Degrasse told Breitbart News. “What the lame media fails to realize is that their relentless lies and baseless slander serve only as additional fuel in Elise’s searing mission to help save America from the disastrous rule of the socialists and their sycophant press stenographers.”

Stefanik’s team also told Breitbart News that the relationship between Stefanik and Trump is so strong that the two speak to each other several times a week. Stefanik’s team also revealed that Trump sings his praises in public and private, a fact that directly contradicts the Time‘ Reporting by far-left journalist Nicholas Confessore, who used quotes from unnamed sources to attack Stefanik.

Epshteyn and Stefanik weren’t the only Republicans to fend off the hit. Mike Caputo, who was an adviser to Trump for more than 25 years and is also close to Stefanik, told Breitbart News that Time’ the story was “duck” and that Trump “admires” Stefanik for his strength and courage.

“I read that story and laughed,” Caputo said. “It’s a canard. President Trump admires strong, brave, determined people and I can promise you that Elise has his friendship and respect, unlike the anonymous coward who lied about their relationship.

Mike Davis, founder and chairman of the pro-Trump Article III project, echoed Caputo’s opinion and noted that Trump “trusts” Stefanik and thinks their relationship is “genuine and solid.” Davis also defended Stefanik from the Time“criticism and slander” from an anonymous source.

“Elise has been a conservative warrior since we worked together in the Bush White House 43 17 years ago. His relationship with President Trump is genuine and solid,” he told Breitbart News. “As I’ve followed her congressional career, it’s clear that she always supported Trump — and endured endless criticism and slander from the media and Democrats for her fierce loyalty to Trump.”

“Whether it was the Access Hollywood drama or two impeachment hoaxes, Elise has always and firmly held the line for Trump. It is clear from their very close and public partnership – for years – that Trump the knows and trusts him. Anyone who claims otherwise is trying to split the America First movement for personal gain,” Davis said.

the Time has a record of false reports. Just in December, the Time falsely claimed that Hunter Biden’s laptop was ‘stolen’ from a laptop repair shop. Hunter’s laptop was actually abandoned at a computer repair shop where he had taken it to be repaired by Hunter. It took the Time 17 months to finally report that Hunter’s laptop was genuine after Emma-Jo Morris of Breitbart News first reported on the laptop’s story in October 2020.
