Trump in West Virginia: 'There were no Russians in our campaign'

Trump in West Virginia: 'There were no Russians in our campaign'

West Virginia Governor Jim Justice announced Thursday at a rally for President Donald Trump that he was shifting party allegiances and becoming a Republican.

"That's all it is", Trump said. "Fantastic man, fantastic guy".

"This man is a good man", Justice said.

On MetroNews' "Talkline" radio program, Justice further explained his decision to host Hoppy Kercheval.

Manchin is up for re-election in 2018.

I have said it once and I will say it a thousand times more during the course of Trump's first term. There's going to be real carnage. "I was sick and exhausted of the way the Democrats cry about everything". I have been a shining knight trying to carry the flag. Justice has also "identified as a Republican and an independent in the past". "They're not so forgotten anymore", he said.

"What in the world is wrong with us as people", Justice said. He spoke of working with them during the legislative session.

Senate President Mitch Carmichael, R-Jackson, also attended the rally. "I wanted to come here to stand in support of everyone else whose rights he [Trump] has so blatantly been stomping. They don't like it because it was a Republican idea".

Butch Conley traveled from OH to see Trump in Huntington with his whole family. I don't really know. He can help our state in any and every way. He is likely salivating at the prospect of using Manchin's opposition to Trump's proposals to paint him as out of touch with the state. His roots are conservative, though - he actually was a Republican at one time - and his successful golf resort business savvy and million dollar bank account has led to a long-time friendship with the Trump family. We have ended the war on lovely, clean coal.

"Now, what if there is a bomb?" However, outside of the Washington-New York-Boston power corridor, the American people have a very different perspective.

Justice reiterated that he only has the state's best interests at heart.

As I said in No. 4, this area is struggling through some hard times. However, he made clear that he'll work with anyone regardless of party affiliation to benefit West Virginians. West Virginia followed at 3 percent GDP growth.

"I'm exhausted of it".

Justice was elected in November with just 49% of the vote, 20 percentage points behind Trump's total in the presidential contest in the state.

"Nick and I have had many, many, many discussions", he said. "I don't like just relying on everything in the news". Still today, three coal miners die daily from black lung disease.

Party Chairman Conrad Lucas said Republican criticism of Justice is a thing of the past.

"He wants to continue supporting the coal industry, and he's looking for innovative ways to do that", Lucas said. "Me and my wife both switched to Republican to vote for Donald Trump". We ran and gave up a part of our lives. We don't want high taxes.

Nevertheless, this announcement has shaken West Virginia and the nation. "We will treat him as a member of our party, but we expect him to act as a member of our party", he said.

Trump invited Justice to the stage to share his announcement. I hope we are able to work together.

"Republican principles are smaller government, more efficient government, lower taxes".

The state's other senator, Republican Shelley Moore Capito, traveled with Trump to West Virginia. And he managed to make his political case in a way that did not immediately dismember and detract from the arguments of his lawyers - a feat that he has not always achieved. "It's surprising yes, but I think he's trying to do what he believes is right and what he believes will help". In a statement, Carmichael said he is pleased with Justice's decision. As you've seen, I've kept that promise.

Biafore said she was "duped" by Justice.

But Trump has never been a politician whose fundamental appeal is logical. All of those are not true. Few, if any of the remaining Democrats in these regions would contemplate switching parties. Am I supposed to assume now that he doesn't care about people? But Democrats were still taken aback by the announcement. However, this move could indicate a bigger shift in the state.

"In a statement released Thursday evening, Armstead also said, ". Joe Manchin, a guy who's frequently seen on national television as the voice of calm reasoned liberal thinking - because he tries to appease his mostly Republican base. How wise would it be to run as a member of one party, then switch not long after the election?

To be sure, Trump can still assemble big, enthusiastic crowds in places like West Virginia, Kentucky, and Ohio. Trump campaigned promising to bring back coal mines to states such as West Virginia.

Additionally, Justice didn't seem to pay much attention to party labels.

"I welcome Jim Justice to the Republican Party", he said. He talked about it with close advisers, wondering if the move would empower him to accomplish more with the Republican majorities in the House of Delegates and the Senate.
