Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin (R) praised business mogul Donald Trump for jumping into the 2016 GOP presidential primary.
In her praise of Trump, Palin provided a subtle diss at 2016 hopeful Hillary Clinton, widely seen as a frontrunner for the 2016 Democratic nomination.
"Trump joins a competitive field of GOP candidates that will duke it out in the arena of ideas and track records, a field representing diverse achievements," Palin said. "This, in contrast with the pro-big government party's practice of merely anointing a chosen one, thus robbing voters of healthy debate."
Palin has praised Trump before, saying the two both share "love for this country, [and] a desire to see our economy put back on the right track" in 2011. That same year, Trump told Fox News Palin would "love" for him to run for president.
