On Twitter, Trump Urges West Virginians to Vote Against Blankenship

  • Senator Elizabeth Warren questions Alex Azar during a Senate Health Education Labor and Pensions Committee hearing on his nomination to be Health and Human Services secretary on Capitol Hill in Washington U.S

The exorbitantly wealthy white-collar criminal - who is trying to steal a nomination from career GOP politicians on the strength of his media exposure and the virulence of his racism - also observed, "As some have said, I am Trumpier than Trump, and this morning proves it'".

Some Republicans worry Blankenship's controversial past could jeopardize their chances at unseating Manchin.

"To the great people of West Virginia we have, together, a really great chance to keep making a big difference", Trump said in a Twitter post.

McConnell's wife is Trump's transportation secretary, Elaine Chao, who was born in Taiwan. "I'm the only candidate in this race who has backed Donald Trump since day one, and as senator, I'll continue working side-by-side with him in the best interests of West Virginia and our conservative values".

State Attorney General Patrick Morrisey has said fellow Republican Blankenship failed to file a personal financial disclosure form in violation of the Ethics in Government Act. Trump urged voters to cast GOP primary ballots either for two-term Congressman Evan Jenkins or state Attorney General Patrick Morrisey. He's referring to when Republican Judge Roy Moore won the Alabama Senate primary previous year only to eventually lose the seat to Democrat Doug Jones.

West Virginia was considered a Democratic stronghold during the 20th century.

"Problem is, Don Blankenship, now running for Senate, can't win the General Election in your State", the president said.

Flipkart buys back $350 mn worth shares
Two years ago, Amazon already approached Flipkart with an offer ultimately deemed too low for a 51 to 55% stake in the company. The goal of the move is to regain its status of a private limited company in Singapore ahead of investment by Walmart .

Blankenship was the CEO of Massey Energy until the explosion at the Upper Big Branch mine in West Virginia.

Trump, seeking to tap into nativist sentiment across the country, kicked off his 2016 campaign with harsh rhetoric on Mexican immigrations to the United States, labeling undocumented immigrants as "rapists" who are "bringing drugs" and "bringing crime". In a different location, Mr. Blankenship dubbed Mr. McConnell "Cocaine Mitch" for far-fetched claims that a ship connected to Ms. Chao's daddy the moment smuggled medications. It's unclear, nevertheless, how powerful Mr. Trump's intervention will probably take a state where lots of ancient votes have been throw.

Blankenship argued that neither Jenkins or Morrisey could beat Manchin without his support, but he would prevail over the Democratic stalwart "even without the support of the establishment".

But the President's son does not share that sentiment and unleashed a series of tweets on Thursday urging West Virginia Republicans to vote against Blankenship.

"No more fumbles like Alabama", he also said in the tweet, while the outside group Mountain Families PAC continued to run a reported $1.3 million worth of TV ads against Blankenship.

In a television ad, Blankenship also stepped up his attacks on Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., accusing him of creating "millions of jobs for China people".

"I think the president is right here", McCarthy said. Jeff Flake, a frequent Trump critic and someone mentioned as a possible 3rd party candidate for president in 2020, hit Trump for that mentality in a tweet Monday.
