“The Faux Information media, along with a few of the perverts doing adverts advert nauseam on primarily Fox (Fox shouldn’t take these adverts!), are attempting to create an impression that Glenn Youngkin and I are at odds and don’t like one another. Importantly, this isn’t true, we get alongside very properly collectively and strongly imagine in lots of the similar insurance policies. Particularly in relation to the essential topic of schooling,” Trump stated in a press release despatched to his electronic mail distribution checklist.
The previous president went on, “The rationale the Faux Information and perverts are working over time is to try to persuade folks that we don’t like one another, and subsequently, my nice and unprecedented Make America Nice Once more base won’t present as much as vote. Additionally, I’m not a believer within the integrity of Virginia’s elections, a lot of unhealthy issues went on, and are happening. The best way you beat it’s to flood the system and get out and vote. Bear in mind this, Glenn Youngkin is an efficient man, a hardworking man, a profitable man.

He was a horrible high-tax governor and can be, if elected, an excellent worse governor once more. I say to all of our thousands and thousands of followers, don’t hearken to the Faux Information and deceptive ads written largely by already-acknowledged perverts. Get out and vote for a person who can be a terrific governor, Glenn Youngkin!”
