Trump tells North Dakota: Unseat 'liberal Democrat' Heitkamp

Source: MSN/Associated Press

FARGO, N.D. — President Donald Trump urged North Dakota voters on Wednesday to fire "liberal Democrat" Sen. Heidi Heitkamp in November, claiming that she promised to be an independent mind but instead has voted in lockstep with her party leadership and against his agenda.

Trump called for the election of Republican U.S. Rep. Kevin Cramer instead.

"When Heidi ran for office, she promised to be an independent vote for the people of North Dakota," Trump said to an arena packed with cheering supporters in Fargo. "Instead, she went to Washington and immediately joined Chuck ... and Nancy," a reference to Democratic congressional leaders Sen. Chuck Schumer and Rep. Nancy Pelosi.

Heitkamp has said she was curious about how Trump would portray her record, which she says has favored many issues the president cares about, including overhauling environmental and banking regulations. Heitkamp also voted to confirm 21 of Trump's 26 Cabinet-level nominations.

4. They need to eradiate we fucking liberals who insist on thinking for ourselves...

that isn't allowed in Putin's Acirema (that is America spelled backwards, sort of like evil,is live backward and devil is lived backwards).

Putin is evil and metaphorically the devil.

Trump is just a narcissistic tool who got in way over his head. Hope he goes away for treason.

9. The poster clearly stated they are voting for her

 

Why are you stirring shit by putting words in their mouth?

Their complaint is that Heidi does not like to admit she’s a Democrat when she’s in North Dakota. You’re aware of that, right?

10. Please. It sounds like Disgruntled Bernie Supporting Hillary...

...I'll hold my nose and vote for her. Please. Just don't post if you are going to do your best to damn a Democrat with faint praise. This is not a close call. Also, North Dakota is a red state. If Heitkamp was not liberal enough for Democratic voters, she would have lost her primary. She won the Democratic primary and she is an incumbent. Kudos to her.

11. I find it ironic you're accusing a poster....

 

.....of being disloyal when Heidi herself will probably deny she supported or voted for Hillary at some point during this campaign.

8. Trump demands total loyalty....

to his fucked-up "agenda", but most off all to him, as the leader of the insidious cult. It looks like Heitkamp votes with Trump around 80% of the time, but to Trump that qualifies her as a "liberal".

Anything less than full-tilt fascism won't do in the Orange Shit-Stain's book. Fuck Trump.

13. Here's the thing, conservative Dems can never

support GOP policies enough; they'll still be bashed come re-election time. That's the thing Dems like Heitkamp keep failing to learn. If you're voting for GOP policies/nominees out of heartfelt conviction, that's one thing, but merely because it's political calculation/triangulation, in the end that doesn't work.

For ex, Sherrod Brown supports Trump on import tariffs, but that's something Brown has believed in for a long time.

14. It is rare for a sitting President to wade into mid-term elections

because past attempts have not been very successful

Suspect the full distortion of social media will be targeted here

Trump never does anything unless the outcome is fixed in his favor beforehand

Heitkamp has said she was curious about how Trump would portray her record, which she says has favored many issues the president cares about, including overhauling environmental and banking regulations. Heitkamp also voted to confirm 21 of Trump's 26 Cabinet-level nominations.

16. Democrat Heitkamp to fly with Trump on Air Force One to North Dakota

 

Sen. Heidi Heitkamp, D-North Dakota, will become the first Democratic lawmaker to join Trump on the presidential jet when she accompanies Trump on his trip to North Dakota on Wednesday, where Trump will continue his push to drive up public support for tax reform.

No good ever comes from that.
