Friday, Republican Virginia Governor Glenn Youngkin refrained from responding to the former president’s criticism of him.
“Young Kin (now that’s an interesting take. Sounds Chinese, doesn’t it?) in Virginia couldn’t have won without me,” Trump posted on Truth Social.
“I Endorsed him, did a very big Trump Rally for him telephonically, got MAGA to Vote for him – or he couldn’t have come close to winning. But he knows that, and admits it. Besides, having a hard time with the Dems in Virginia – But he’ll get it done!” regarding Youngkin, Trump wrote.
Later that day, when he was cornered by reporters, Youngkin resisted engaging.
Youngkin stated in a video that WRIC-TV reporter Jackie DeFusco shared on Twitter, “First of all, I didn’t see it.”
Asked about former President Trump saying Gov. Youngkin’s name “sounds Chinese” and that he couldn’t have won without him, @GovernorVA says he didn’t see the comments. He said he does not call people names and he is focused on bringing people together @8NEWS pic.twitter.com/PlZ9aFXTWv

“Listen, you all know me. I do not call people names. I really work hard to bring people together and that’s what we’re working on,” he remarked.
Youngkin made it clear that he didn’t want the message read aloud.
“That’s not the way I roll, and not the way I behave,” he declared. “This is a moment for us to come together.”
Trump became interested in Virginia after Lt. Governor Winsome Earle-Sears said on Thursday that Trump might be more of a part of the GOP’s history than its future.
According to Earle-Sears, “What we saw was, even though he wasn’t on the ballot, he was, because he stepped in and endorsed candidates.”
“And yet, it turns out that those he did not endorse on the same ticket did better than the ones he did endorse. That gives you a clue that the voters want to move on. And a true leader knows when they have become a liability to the mission,” the speaker continued.

A Trump representative responded with a statement to the Post.
“Winsome Sears rode a wave of President Trump’s voters to election victory in 2021,” the statement said. “Her comments are a slap to the face to all of the grassroots Republicans that worked so hard to get her elected. They won’t forget this and there will be a reckoning. There always is in politics.”
Radio host John Fredericks, who chaired Trump’s campaigns in Virginia both times he ran for president, also fired off a reply. CONTINUE READING…
