Marjorie Taylor Greene warned Donald Trump against hiring anti-Muslim activist Laura Loomer, branding her as “mentally unstable” and a “documented liar” during a public clash.

Ms Green, a far-right lawmaker from Georgia, claimed on Twitter that Ms Loomer had attacked her for not supporting her own congressional ambitions and supporting Speaker Kevin McCarthy.

And it appeared her warning swiftly worked as The New York Times reported that the job offer was quickly pulled by Mr Trump’s team following Ms Greene’s outburst.

Her scathing remarks about Ms Loomer had come after the newspaper reported hours earlier that the former president has asked aides to find a position for her on his 2024 campaign or a supportive Super PAC.

“Laura Loomer is mentally unstable and a documented liar. She can not be trusted,” tweeted Ms Greene on Friday.

“She spent months lying about me and attacking me just because I supported Kevin McCarthy for Speaker and after I had refused to endorse her last election cycle. She loves the alleged FBI informant and weirdo Nick Fuentes. She tried to get hired on the Ye campaign after the infamous Maralago dinner, but Kanye West refused to hire her so now she’s running to Trump,” she continued. “Never hire or do business with a liar. Liars are toxic and poisonous to everything they touch. I’ll make sure he knows.”

Ms Greene is a vocal supporter of Mr Trump and went to New York to back him on the day of his historic arrest and arraignment.

Ms Loomer, who ran and lost a 2020 campaign in Florida, has referred to Islam as a “cancer” and was banned from Twitter over comments she made about Representative Ilhan Omar.

“Not very “Christian” of you to lie like this.. especially on Good Friday,” Ms Loomer responded on Twitter.

And she added: “Gee, what happened? Why don’t you tell everyone how you asked me for help raising money, you rented my email lists, you asked me to give you my opposition research on Ilhan Omar. Stop being jealous and sabotaging one of Trump’s biggest loyalists.”

She later tweeted, “I don’t think I’ve ever seen MTG attack DeSantis publicly. Really makes you wonder…”

The bickering pair were then invited to squash their quarrels over dinner in Washington DC by Nigel Farage’s former chief adviser Raheem Kassam, which Ms Lassen accepted.

“Look, we all need to support President Trump. I accept this open invitation from (Raheem Kassam) I will sit down (Marjorie Taylor Greene) and iron out these differences in the interest of our country, which is on life support. And in the interest of coming together to support President Trump. Do you accept, (Marjorie Taylor Greene)?” she tweeted.
