'This Is New'

"Thanks Trump for saving our lives unlike the Democrats who want to be killed I guess by China- all Democrats go live in China and die," she added in another tweet.prevnext
'Waste of Space'
In September 2019, she tweeted, "Go Trump! I’m so over the waste of time Democrat’s! Focus on changing the world rather then making up things ... waste of space."

Abraham has expressed political ideations of her own, telling Wonderwall in June 2019 that she would love to switch places with Trump in the White House. "I think there's so much. I'm not educated fully on how quick I could turn things around or make things better for children and mothers or just women in general," she said at the time. “So I think that would be my cause and I would kind of stay focused on those areas."
Abraham added that she wanted to make "safety more strict" and make "systems simpler," adding, "It would be enlightening and fun to be president for the day."prev
