Trump gave Lord a shout out during his speech focused on taxes in Pennsylvania. Lord resides in Pennsylvania and attended the president's speech.

“Hi Jeffrey. The great Jeffrey Lord. He was on fake news CNN for a long time. He was one of my few sources of truth. Thank you Jeffrey, for being here,” Trump said.

Lord was a prominent surrogate for Trump on CNN until August, when the network cut ties with Lord after he tweeted “Sieg Heil!” in response to a liberal activist on Twitter.

"I have no hesitation about [using a Nazi salute]. If I had known this was going to end up like this, I would have done it again," Lord told The Hill in August. "You have to go after these people. This is not allowable under any circumstances."
