Donald Trump election announcement is exploding heads at the White House

There’s no underestimating how critical the next election will be. Everything is on the table.

But former President Trump has made an election announcement that has the White House losing their minds.

The state of Virginia has suddenly turned into a battleground state that is reliably purple and could go anyway. No one really thought Virginia’s sitting Governor Glenn Youngkin (R) was going to win against the heavy favorite Terry McAuliffe (D). His win just highlighted how unpredictable Virginia can be.

At one point it used to be reliably red. Virginia wasn’t nearly as infected by the Washington, D.C. bureaucracy as it is today. The federal government’s expansion has been bleeding deeper and deeper into the south of Virginia, to the point that there’s individuals who will commute from the most southern regions of Virginia, like Newport News and Virginia Beach, to the Fairfax area for a federal government desk job.

This has happened because the Democrat Party has specifically targeted Virginia to flip it deep blue. There have been leaked presentation slides from the DNC that lay out the plans the Democrats have to turn Virginia into California. They believe if they can make a formerly deep red state like Virginia into deep blue, they can do it anywhere.

So all eyes are on what happens in Virginia this election cycle. Every single Republican in the state has to be on edge and prepared to fight for their Congressional seat, even if they’ve previously won races by double digits.

An example of this is Bob Good (R-VA-5), who won his election to the U.S. House of Representatives back in 2022 by about fifteen points. Democrats have been circling around this seat, however, trying to get it to flip. Reports indicate that Democrats are spending millions upon millions to target any potential vulnerability on the part of the Republicans in Virginia.

Donald Trump is aware of this and is considering this as an opportunity to potentially take out Mr. Bob Good of Virginia’s Fifth Congressional District and install a stronger America First conservative in Congress in his stead.

This week, Donald Trump announced that he was endorsing the primary opponent of Bob Good, Mr. John McGuire, saying that McGuire has his “complete” and “total” endorsement for the 2024 election in Virginia’s Fifth Congressional District.

Donald Trump in his announcement said that Bob Good is “bad” for Virginia and the United States, saying that Good has turned his back on the America First “movement.” He even implied that Good has been two-faced in his time in Congress thus far. Mr. Trump said that Mr. Good’s endorsement of Trump for the presidential election is “too little too late” to save him from a tough primary race.

“Bob Good is BAD FOR VIRGINIA, AND BAD FOR THE USA. He turned his back on our incredible movement, and was constantly attacking and fighting me until recently, when he gave a warm and ‘loving’ Endorsement – But really, it was too late. The damage had been done!” Donald Trump shared on his Truth Social account.

Former President Donald Trump argues that John McGuire is the man for the job as he is a Navy Seal and current Virginia State Legislator who honestly has the interests of America at heart and not the interests of the political game being played in Washington, D.C.

“I just want to MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN, and the person that can most help me do that is Navy Seal and highly respected State Legislator, John McGuire, a true American Hero. John, who fought the Cartels on the Front Line, and then came home and fought the drug dealers in Virginia, will ALWAYS PUT AMERICA FIRST,” Trump added in his post.

Furthermore, he said McGuire will work better with a second Trump administration than Bob Good will, highlighting the success that the first Donald Trump administration had when Republicans were willing to work with him on critical issues like border security and crime.

“I had the safest Border in history, built hundreds of miles of Wall, and then Crooked Joe Biden came along and ruined it, making it one of the worst human catastrophes ever in our Country. John and I will correct this situation, and fast! He is strong on crime, will protect our great Military/Vets, and will always defend our under siege Second Amendment. John McGuire has my Complete and Total Endorsement! MAGA2024,” Trump finished in his post.

Interestingly, Donald Trump may be looking at the efforts of the Democrats in Virginia and considering if he can use them to his advantage to prop up strong America First conservatives who may be attractive for Virginia voters. That could be at the heart of this endorsement of the primary challenger of Bob Good.

Bob Good has been on Trump’s bad side for a few reasons. Firstly, Congressman Good is one of the eight Republicans who voted to oust Mr. McCarthy as the Speaker of the House, which has led to chaos for the Republican leadership in the lower chamber of Congress. Donald Trump has been extremely critical of the Republican Party for mishandling the House of Representatives’ leadership in recent years.

Secondly, Mr. Bob Good also called the cops on a Trump rally because he was kicked out of the event that was being held in Farmville, Virginia. Not exactly something that happens to an ardent Trump supporter.

As for the polls of the race, it seems Bob Good is up against it as McGuire is up by as many as a dozen points or so, depending on the pollster you ask.
