Friday, Republican Virginia Governor Glenn Youngkin refrained from responding to former President Donald Trump’s remarks on him.
“Young Kin (now that’s an interesting take. Sounds Chinese, doesn’t it?) in Virginia couldn’t have won without me,” Trump wrote 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!” Trump wrote about Youngkin.
Later in the day, when reporters cornered Youngkin, he declined to engage.
Jackie DeFusco of WRIC-TV tweeted a video clip of Youngkin stating, “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 said.
Youngkin said that he did not wish to hear the message read aloud.
“That’s not the way I roll, and not the way I behave,” he said. “This is a moment for us to come together.’
Lt. Gov. Winsome Earle-Thursday Sears’s remark that Trump may be more a part of the GOP’s history than its future drew Trump’s attention.
The Washington Post quotes Earle-Sears as saying, “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,” she said.

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.” CONTINUE READING…
