President Donald Trump in a statement this week affirmed that he and Virginia Republican gubernatorial candidate Glenn Youngkin have a great relationship despite contradicting narratives propagated by the mainstream media.
He said that the “Fake News media” along will other ads are attempting to create an image of Trump and Youngkin at odds with each other.
“This is not true, we get along very well together and strongly believe in many of the same policies,” he said in the statement.
“Especially when it comes to the important subject of education,” he continued, touching on a hot-button issue for many Virginians right now, notably in Loudoun County.
He also noted that the media is hoping to create this divisive image of Youngkin and Trump in order to suppress Trump supporters from getting out to vote on Tuesday.
“The way you beat it is to flood the system and get out and vote,” the 45th president opined in regard to the integrity of Virginia’s elections.
Contrasting Democratic candidate Terry McAuliffe, whom he referred to as a “low-life politician,” with his opponent, Trump noted that the Youngkin “will be a great governor.”
Urging again for Virginians to vote red, he said: “Remember this, Glenn Youngkin is a good man, a hardworking man, a successful man. He loves Virginia and wants to cut your taxes, save your children’s education, and many other very good things.”
