Trump tells W. Virginians not to vote. He doesn’t need you anymore
Donald Trump told a rally in West Virginia there was no need to vote now, and acted like he was doing them a favor by showing up.
During a joyful, victorious rally speech in West Virginia on Thursday night, Trump told his crowd of 13,000 that they no longer had to vote in Tuesday’s Republican primary — even though there are still a number of contested local races on the ballot. This came after Trump repeatedly told the crowd that he debated on whether to show up, as he no longer needed their votes in the primary. He said “just didn’t have the heart” to stand them up.
“What I want you to do is save your vote — you know, you don’t have to vote anymore. Save your vote for the general election, okay? Forget this one. The primary is gone,” Trump said. “Save your vote for the general election in November, and we’re going to show you something, and then you’re going to show me something, okay?”
