Navajo Nation leader promotes Donald Trump as tribal citizen is set for federal execution


August 27, 2020

With the life of one of his own in the hands of Donald Trump, Vice President Myron Lizer of the Navajo Nation addressed fellow Republicans on the second day of their party's nominating convention.

Speaking via video from the New Mexico portion of the reservation, Lizer made history as the first tribal leader with a prime-time slot at the Republican National Convention. He praised the Trump administration for its efforts in Indian Country, pointing to the the recent passage of the Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security Act, also known as the CARES Act, which set aside $8 billion for tribes to address the impacts of COVID-19 in their communities.

"President Trump delivered the largest financial funding package ever to Indian Country," Lizer said of a law that Congress wrote and sent to the White House as the pandemic took hold in America in March.
