Republican Senate nominee Herschel Walker is shutting down the narrative that former President Donald Trump told him to run for the Georgia seat, The Hill reports.
During an interview with Revolt, Walker revealed that he was "mad" at Trump for claiming to be the inspiration behind his Senate run.
"One thing that people don't know is is President Trump never asked me," Walker said. "I need to tell him that he never asked. I heard it all on television that he's going to ask Herschel, saying Herschel is going to run."
"President Trump never came out and [said], 'Herschel, will you run for that Senate seat?'" Walker continued. "So, I'm mad at him because he never asked but he's taking credit that he asked."
Walker added that God was the reason why he's bidding for Senate.
"I prayed about it," Walker said. "And to be honest with you, I was praying that God would bring somebody else because I'm happy. My life is doing well."
"But I love the Lord Jesus," the Republican nominee said.
Walker, a former University of Georgia football player, was endorsed by Trump in the early days of his campaign. The former football star won the Republican nomination and seeks to unseat Democratic Georgia Senator Raphael Warnock.
