Donald Trump, in several posts on his Truth Social platform on Wednesday, began sarcastically endorsing democratic candidates in the party’s primary.
The first target of Trump’s democrat endorsement campaign was lawyer Dan Goldman, who the former President praised for having “headed up the Impeachment committee and lost”.
“Lawyer Dan Goldman is running for Congress, NY-10, and it is my great honor to Strongly Endorse him,” Trump quipped. “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!”
Trump’s “endorsement” of Goldman seems to be poking fun at the New York Times, which also endorsed Goldman in the Democratic primary last week, lauding his “work on the impeachment trial” and his “close working relationships” with the D.C establishment.
Trump’s next target was the struggle between Rep. Jerry Nadler (D-NY) and House Oversight Chair Carolyn Maloney (D-NY), a race that is the product of Democrats’ botched gerrymandering attempt, forcing two top Democrats to contend over a single seat.
“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!”
