Trump warns voters not to underestimate Corey Stewart

Source: Politico




By POLITICO STAFF 06/13/2018 06:36 AM EDT

President Donald Trump on Wednesday praised Republican Corey Stewart for advancing through the GOP primary in Virginia, saying that voters shouldn’t “underestimate” the controversial Stewart while labeling Democratic incumbent Sen. Tim Kaine “a total stiff.”

The conservative Stewart has pushed a vehemently anti-immigration stance, has defended confederate civil war monuments and displayed the confederate flag at events.

“Congratulations to Corey Stewart for his great victory for Senator from Virginia. Now he runs against a total stiff, Tim Kaine, who is weak on crime and borders, and wants to raise your taxes through the roof. Don’t underestimate Corey, a major chance of winning!” the president tweeted early Wednesday morning after he landed at Andrews Air Force Base from his trip to Singapore to meet with North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un.

Stewart won the primary Tuesday night over former Green Beret and Virginia Delegate Nick Freitas (R-Culpeper), who had the support of the GOP establishment.

1. I'm not surprised

I always felt that there a lot racists and bigots living in Virginia!


By the way, I live in Virginia and I've seen my share of semi-Americans so much more prouder of the star & bars, then they are of the Stars & Stripes!!!

4. People overlooked this story at the time, but Corey Stewart accepted....

NarrowlyDecidedHat Retweeted:

People overlooked this story at the time, but Corey Stewart accepted – and then publicly defended last year – an endorsement from a prominent neo-Confederate who protested a statue to a black tennis star and did a racist attack on Nikki Haley.

Because as evidence comes out in next 5 months that shows what a crook hes been Don the con will be like and albatross around the GOP candidates neck and some of the democratic candidate will win in GOP territory because their GOP rival sided with a crook.

Heres hoping anyway
