Trump Urges West Virginia Voters To Oppose Republican Don Blankenship

Last week, the president's son, Donald Trump Jr., also tweet's a plea for "the people of West Virginia to make a wise decision and reject Blankenship".

President Donald Trump tweeted on Monday that Blakenship can not win the general election on Tuesday and suggested that West Virginians should either vote for Morrisey or the establishment-backed Rep. Evan Jenkins (R-WV).

Blankenship rejects the comparisons to Moore, which were amplified when the president urged voters Monday to "Remember Alabama". Moore lost a deep red seat to Democrat Doug Jones, thinning Republican's majority in the U.S. Senate to the current 51-49 margin.

Mr. Morrissey seized to the president's no announcement at a tweet of his own, saying Mr. Blankenship would-be an "disaster" at the general election. In a Tweet Monday morning, Trump attempted to appeal to the sensibilities of West Virginia Republicans, who voted Trump into office in 2016 by almost 42 points. "As some have said, I am Trumpier than Trump and this morning proves it". No one would be happier about that than Joe Manchin, as Blankenship is the Democrats' dream candidate.

"We don't think that even President Trump can stop it", Blankenship told Fox News.

A defiant Don Blankenship is firing back after President Donald Trump urged West Virginia voters to support two of the convicted ex-coal executive's opponents in the Republican U.S. Senate primary. What about that time he referred to Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, Chao's husband, as "Cocaine Mitch".

President Trump wrote,"To the great people of West Virginia we have, together, a really great chance to keep making a big difference".

Everybody has an opinion about Don Blankenship in West Virginia - and they have for years.

Trump's run was also defined by a host of conspiracy theories, from raising false questions about Ted Cruz's father being tied to President John F. Kennedy's death to repeatedly questioning President Barack Obama's birth certificate to besmirching Muslims by suggesting they were cheering in New Jersey on September 11. Luther Strange - but when it became clear that Moore could well win despite the large number of women who came forward to say he had sought relationships with them when they were under age, Trump went all in for Moore.

McConnell is married to Trump's Transportation Secretary Elaine Chao, whose parents immigrated to the U.S.in 1961 and are both USA citizens.

"Swamp captain Mitch McConnell has created millions of jobs for China people", Blankenship said in the ad Politico first reported.

"The problem isn't that Don Blankenship can't win a general election in West Virginia, it's that he shouldn't win a general election in West Virginia".

Blankenship's campaign argued that failing to disclose his finances was a non-issue.
