Phyllis Schlafly looked at her support of Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump as her "final political legacy to turn around America," says Brett Decker, co-authored a new book with the barnstorming conservative activist who died on Monday at the age of 92.

"Gen. Douglas MacArthur famously said, 'Old soldiers never die; they just fade away.' That was not how Phyllis Schlafly looked at it," Decker writes in an opinion piece published in USA Today.

"The iconic conservative activist knew she didn't have much time left, but was fighting until her last breath when she passed away."

Schlafly, Decker and Ed Martin are the authors of "The Conservative Case for Trump," published this week by Regnery.

"Schlafly's last crusade was one over which some conservatives were divided: winning the GOP nomination for Donald Trump and getting him elected president," Decker writes.

"The reputed 'Darling of the Silent Majority' looked at her support for Trump as her final political legacy to turn around America, especially on the issues of immigration, trade deals and judicial nominations.

"The Nov. 8 election will determine if Phyllis Schlafly was on the winning side of the national debate one final time."

The hard-right, anti-feminist powerhouse, who helped kill passage of the the Equal Rights Amendment in the 1970s, was feted this week a tenacious activist always up for a fight to defend her often controversial beliefs.

Trump remembered her as "a conservative icon who led millions to action, reshaped the conservative movement, and fearlessly battled globalism and the 'kingmakers' on behalf of America's workers and families . . .

"She was a patriot, a champion for women, and a symbol of strength. She fought every day right to the end for America First. Her legacy will live on in the movement she led and the millions she inspired," Trump said.
