The Tweeter-in-Chief informed the West Virginia populace Monday morning that they should not vote Don Blankenship for Senate.

O'Connell, who worked on John McCain's presidential campaign, said he believes that if Blankenship loses the primary this Tuesday, the race is the Republicans' to win.

"I want to make sure (U.S. Senate Minority Leader) Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) is not the majority leader". All six of the candidates in the West Virginia GOP primary for U.S. Senate have attempted to align themselves with the president, who are hoping to take on U.S. Sen.

"To the great people of West Virginia we have, together, a really great chance to keep making a big difference", Trump said in an early morning tweet Monday. "Remember Alabama. Vote Rep. Jenkins or A.G. Morrisey!" he posted.

After all, Instagram and Facebook do heavily rely on the feature and it makes sense that it caters to a wider audience as well. Maybe WhatsApp would allow users to get rid of ads by buying into a premium ad-free subscription for a fraction of the cost.

Trump, seeking to tap into nativist sentiment across the country, kicked off his 2016 campaign with harsh rhetoric on Mexican immigrations to the United States, labeling undocumented immigrants as "rapists" who are "bringing drugs" and "bringing crime". In a Tweet Monday morning, Trump attempted to appeal to the sensibilities of West Virginia Republicans, who voted Trump into office in 2016 by almost 42 points.

"I am the only candidate that has beaten Joe Manchin, and I have done it twice". But after Morrisey and Jenkins spent the entirety of a Fox News debate last week attacking each other, a strategy that gave Blankenship a largely free pass, the coal baron is said to be surging. More ominously, Blankenship served a year in prison for failing to provide a safe working environment after a mine explosion killed 29 workers in 2010.

"Swamp captain Mitch McConnell has created millions of jobs for China people, while doing so, Mitch has gotten rich", Blankenship says in the ad. "In fact, his China family has given him tens of millions of dollars". National Republicans have compared the race to last year's Alabama Senate contest where Republican Roy Moore unexpectedly won the primary but then lost to Democrat Doug Jones in the general. He declared himself "Trumpier than Trump", after seeing the tweet, confirming that Trumpism has moved into something larger than just the president.

Meanwhile, Morrissey has attacked Blankenship, accusing him of not filing a personal financial disclosure form, according to The Hill.

The ad also drew criticism for the use of the term "China family", to describe McConnell's in-laws. Should the Mr. Blankenship however win despite the intervention it would be exceptionally uncomfortable to Mr. Trump.

"I think he would follow in the exact same footsteps as our president", Newbrough said.

"No way!" Trump said in his tweet.
