Rush Limbaugh has been one of the most important voices of conservatism for decades, and he has a message about the upcoming election.
Limbaugh posted a video on his Twitter account reaffirming his support for Trump moments before now-Justice Amy Coney Barrett’s Supreme Court confirmation.
“Hey, folks, sitting here in the library getting ready to watch the confirmation vote — Amy Coney Barrett, Supreme Court — and it just reminds me: Folks, we don’t have a choice in this election. It’s got to be Donald Trump,” Limbaugh began.

Limbaugh pointed out the fact that the 2020 presidential election is especially important, because the Democrat Party isn’t what it used to be.
“We’re not going to have the kind of country everybody thinks we’re going to have,” Rush predicted. “This is not the old ‘Republicans versus Democrats,’ where we all have the same objectives, just different philosophies on how to get there.
They do not have those objectives any more. Their purpose is to erase the Constitution, start over rewriting it, eliminating the concept of ‘The citizen has rights which prevail over government.’”
“It’s serious, and it’s scary, and we don’t have a choice. You have to get out there and vote Trump,” he insisted.
“It’s got to be Trump … we’ve got to be America,” Limbaugh concluded.
Rush was diagnosed with stage 4 lung cancer in February, and has told his listeners that it is terminal.
The host reluctantly gave an update recently, saying that “it’s tough to realize that the days where I do not think I’m under a death sentence are over.”
Soon after Rush announced his condition in early February, President Trump insisted that the talk-radio host attend his 3rd State of the Union address.
During the event on February 4th, First Lady Melania Trump presented Rush with the Presidential Medal of Freedom, which was a teary-eyed moment for many conservatives who have been following him throughout his career.
Rush has shared that he is heavily relying on his Christian faith to endure his illness.
“I have a personal relationship with Jesus Christ,” said the talk-radio host.
“It is of immense value, strength, confidence. And that’s why I’m able to remain fully committed to the idea that what is supposed to happen will happen when it’s meant to,” Limbaugh added.
