Trump lashed out at Tester during a rally on Saturday, strongly implying that he could ruin the senator’s career. The attack was a reaction to Tester revealing allegations of misconduct against Trump’s pick for the Veterans Affairs secretary position. The allegations ultimately resulted in Trump’s pick, Navy Rear Adm. Ronny Jackson, withdrawing his nomination.
“Tester started throwing out things that he’s heard,” Trump said during the Saturday rally. “Well I know things about Tester that I could say too. And if I said them, he’d never be elected again.”
On Monday, Warren sent out an email to her huge base of supporters urging them to donate to Tester’s re-election campaign, arguing that Trump had made an unwarranted attack against the senator for “doing his job.”
