President Donald J. Trump sent out a tweet after he left a campaign-style rally in Montana on Thursday.
Trump tweeted: It was my great honor to join proud, hardworking American Patriots in Montana tonight. I love you – thank you! #MAGA
Trump was in Montana supporting the candidacy of state Auditor Matt Rosendale, the Republican challenger to Democratic U.S. Sen. Jon Tester.
The Yahoo reports further:
In the crowded arena, Trump made clear the campaign stop was personal as he lamented the failed nomination of White House physician Ronny Jackson to lead the VA. Trump blamed Tester for “shameful dishonest attacks on a great man, a friend of mine.”
Tester is one of 10 Democrats running in states Trump won in 2016. Trump singled out Tester in April, saying the farmer from Big Sandy “will have a big price to pay” for releasing allegations against Jackson that included drunkenness, overprescribing medication and fostering a hostile work environment. Jackson denied the claims but withdrew his nomination. The Pentagon is investigating.
“Tester said things about him that were horrible and they weren’t true,” Trump said. “And that’s probably why I’m here. Because I won Montana by so many points, I don’t have to come here.”
