Former President Donald Trump is now turning his attention toward Virginia Governor Glenn Youngkin (R) in his latest rant.

On Friday, November 11, Trump took to his social network where he delivered multiple verbal blows, some of which many have described as racist.

The former president began his fiery post with a mocking breakdown of the Republican governor's last name adding, "now that’s an interesting take. Sounds Chinese, doesn’t it?”

In the post, Trump appeared to take credit for Youngkin's success in winning the state's gubernatorial election. According to Trump, it was his influence that motivated voters from his base to cast ballots for Youngkin.

"Young Kin (now that’s an interesting take. Sounds Chinese, doesn’t it?) in Virginia couldn’t have won without me. 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's latest rant follows his previous attack aimed at Rupert Murdoch and Fox News over the network's presumed support of Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (R). On Thursday, November 10, Trump sounded off with his concerns as speculation looms about the possibility of DeSantis being a contender for the 2024 presidential election.

“NewsCorp, which is Fox, the Wall Street Journal, and the no longer great New York Post (bring back Col!), is all in for Governor Ron DeSanctimonious, an average REPUBLICAN Governor with great Public Relations, who didn’t have to close up his State, but did, unlike other Republican Governors, whose overall numbers for a Republican, were just average—middle of the pack—including COVID, and who has the advantage of SUNSHINE, where people from badly run States up North would go no matter who the Governor was, just like I did!” Trump wrote.

Then, he turned his attention to the Florida governor. "Ron came to me in desperate shape in 2017—he was politically dead, losing in a landslide to a very good Agriculture Commissioner, Adam Putnam, who was loaded up with cash and great poll numbers. Ron had low approval, bad polls, and no money, but he said that if I would Endorse him, he could win."
