Former President Donald Trump heaped praise on Rep. Elise Stefanik, R-New York, during a Florida fundraiser, even giving a potential peek into her promising political future.

Stefanik has long been a defender of Trump, and it looks like that support is paying massive dividends. Trump used his influence to raise a massive $3.2 million for Republican candidates as well as his PAC during the Tuesday event at his Mar-a-Lago resort.

During the fundraiser, he had nothing but good things to say about Stefanik, calling her “a rocket ship” and “upwardly mobile.”

“I want to congratulate Elise on her success. Man is she moving fast. That means at this rate she’ll be President in about 6 years,” Trump remarked. “She’s always been a friend and people would say she’s upwardly mobile. She goes to Washington as a young beautiful woman who took over and all of a sudden she becomes a rocket ship, she’s the boss. She’s been a great boss, a strong boss.”

Trump also dropped some hints about his own presidential run, once again implying that he may run in 2024. The crowd was all for it, chanting things like “four more years” and “2024.”

The event hosted about 200 guests at about $1,000 per person, but there were some more philanthropic guests who paid up to $25,000 for a seat in Mar-a-Lago’s “white and gold room.”

NYS Conservative Party Chairman Gerry Kassar was also in attendance, explaining that both Stefanik and Trump were both supported by the state’s Conservative Party during their first primaries.

“Elise called me and said I’d like to have you there, you’re the state chairman of the party,” Kassar reminisced about his first visit to the massive resort.
