Former US President Donald Trump has taken aim at yet another potential challenger should he decide to run for the Oval Office again in 2024, this time targeting Virginia Governor Glenn Youngkin, suggesting his name “sounds Chinese,” while taking credit for his gubernatorial win last year.
In a post to his Truth Social account on Friday, Trump highlighted his endorsement of Youngkin in Virginia’s 2021 governor’s race, insisting the Republican could not have won without his help. The former commander in chief also mocked Youngkin’s name, which he inexplicably deemed “Chinese.”
“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,” he said. “But he knows that, and admits it.”
