Last week, the New York Times wrote a piece detailing President Trump's take-down of Senator Manchin. In the story Trump said "He talks. But he doesn’t do anything. He doesn’t do. ‘Hey, let’s get together, let’s do bipartisan.’ I say, ‘Good, let’s go.’ Then you don’t hear from him again. … He is not a centrist."
President Trump is simply articulating what West Virginia voters have come to know from Two-Face Joe.
Having been called out by the President, Two-Face Joe is flailing, by blaming the President’s staff, to control the damage from his decision to vote against a tax cut for West Virginians. As you cover Two-Face Joe’s latest attempt to have it both ways, please consider the following statement from me:
"This excuse is so thin that you can't help but see right through it. Senator Manchin met with the President and his staff on numerous occasions and never actually tried to work with them and ultimately decided to vote against tax cuts for West Virginians. Now Manchin wants to blame the President’s staff now that the tax reform bill turned out to be a great move for West Virginians and Americans as a whole. Desperation is not a good look for Two-Face Joe and voters are tired of his antics and blatant political posturing. " - RNC Spokesperson Brett Tubbs
