Erick Erickson, who runs the conservative blog The Resurgent and is one of the founders of RedState, is known for being one of the most vocal conservative NeverTrumpers out there. But even Erickson seemingly approves of Trump's U.N. speech.

In a tweet, Erickson stated that the president's U.N. speech "may be my favorite Trump speech so far as President."

"First POTUS in a long time to not do the BS dance at UN," Erickson wrote.

Erickson elaborated on his thoughts in an op-ed posted by Fox News. 

"He was bold and American — giving real clarity to what he meant by an 'America First' speech," Erickson wrote. "He did not mince words and called out rogue nations. But he also noted that he had no intention of imposing the American system on other nations. His speech was a speech on what he sees as realism and getting away from an idealized American foreign policy. His was a speech that will resonate beyond his base."
