Trump calls on Gov. Noem to run against “RINO” John Thune

New Year’s Day morning, President Trump tweeted “I hope to see the great Governor of South Dakota @KristiNoem, run against RINO @SenJohnThune, in the upcoming 2022 Primary.”

He added “she would do a fantastic job in the U.S. Senate, but if not Kristi, others are already lining up. South Dakota wants strong leadership, NOW!”

Last month, Trump blasted Thune amid reports the South Dakota Senator called for Republicans to reject challenges to the electoral college vote.

“Republicans in the Senate so quickly forget,” Trump tweeted “Right now they would be down 8 seats without my backing them in the last Election. RINO John Thune, “Mitch’s boy”, should just let it play out. South Dakota doesn’t like weakness.”

“He will be primaried in 2022, political career over!!!” Trump added.

Trump’s tweet came after Thune reportedly said that efforts to object to the Electoral College vote would “go down like a shot dog” in the Senate.
