President Trump once again left the echo chamber of Washington, D.C. to meet with and speak to real Americans.
James Conley Justice Jr., an American coal mining and agriculture businessman and politician who is the 36th and current Governor of West Virginia was introduced by President Trump. Governor Justice said he could not longer serve West Virginia as a Democrat. Governor Justice said that the Democrats had let him down. He called President Trump ” a good man.” Governor Justice then said he is switching party affiliation from Democrat to Republican.
To cheers of USA, USA, USA, President Trump used this occasion to remind the people of West Virginia and all Americans that he was elected to represent the people, not the special interests.
President Trump said Washington “is full of people only looking out for themselves.” The President said about all Democrats, “The only reason they are talking about the made up Russia story is that they have no message, no agenda and no vision.” The President then asked the crowd, “Are there any Russians here tonight?”
