Donald Trump 'endorses' three New York Democrats competing for two newly-drawn congressional seats
Former President Donald Trump on Wednesday evening "endorsed" three candidates for the United States House of Representatives in a series of posts on his Twitter imitation app Truth Social.
All of them are Democrats from New York, whom Trump appears to want to pit against one another.
The nods were a rerun from August 1st when Trump threw his weight behind two Republicans named Eric who were vying for their party's gubernatorial August 2nd primary nomination in Missouri.
Congresspersons Carolyn Maloney and Jerry Nadler will face off in a primary next Tuesday in New York's newly-drawn 12th Congressional District, which combined Manhattan's East and West sides and eliminated one of their seats. And attorney Daniel Goldman, who served as lead the House's lead counsel during Trump's first impeachment trial, is running for New York's 10th Congressional District, which was redrawn from the Upper East Side – Nadler's territory – to encompass Lower Manhattan and Brooklyn.
Lawyer Dan Goldman is running for Congress, NY-10, and it is my great honor to Strongly Endorse him. I do this not because of the fact that he headed up the Impeachment Committee and lost, but because he was honorable, fair, and highly intelligent. While it was my honor to beat him, and beat him badly, Dan Goldman has a wonderful future ahead….
….He will be very compassionate and compromising to those within the Republican Party, and will do everything possible to make sure they have a fair chance at winning against the Radical Left Democrats, who he knows are destroying our Country. I would like to thank Dan for fighting so hard for America, and for working so tirelessly to stop 'Trump.' He was not easy to beat, but winning against him made me realize just how very talented I am!
A vote for Carolyn Maloney in NY-12 is a vote for the future! She is a kind and wonderful person, who has always said terrific things about me, and will support me no matter what I do, just as I supported her very early on. She begged for a check with no quid pro quo, and I gave it to her. In fact, I gave her many….
….On the other hand, Jerry Nadler is likewise a hard driving man of the people, whose energy and attention to detail is unlike anyone else in Congress. He is high energy, sharp, quick-witted, and bright. You can’t go wrong with either, but Carolyn Maloney is the better man. She will lead our Country into a very GREEN and prosperous future. Carolyn has my Complete and Total Endorsement, she will never let our Conservative Movement down!
Goldman, Nadler, and incumbent Democratic Representative Sean Patrick Maloney (running in New York's 17th Congressional District) were legitimately endorsed by The New York Times on Saturday.
