President Donald Trump tweeted directly at voters in Virginia on Monday with a message about Gov. Ralph Northam, the Second Amendment and gun rights.
“Your Governor wants to obliterate your Second Amendment. I have stopped him,” Trump wrote, in part, in a tweet on Monday.
Trump continued, “I am the only thing between you and your Second Amendment.”
Trump urged that Virginians should vote for him or “wave goodbye” to low taxes and gun rights.
The tweet was posted along with several others on various topics Monday morning. Trump left Walter Reed National Military Medical Center just after 6:30 p.m. on Monday night. Marine One landed at the White House just before 7 p.m.
Virginia Voters! Your Governor wants to obliterate your Second Amendment. I have stopped him. I am the only thing between you and your Second Amendment. Working hard in Virginia. It’s IN PLAY. Better Vote for your favorite President, or wave goodbye to low taxes and gun rights!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) October 5, 2020
Meanwhile, Gov. Ralph Northam shared an update via Twitter later on Monday morning, letting supporters know he’s “feeling good” as he and wife Pamela Northam both recover from COVID-19.
Pearl and I are back with another update. Over the weekend, I developed some mild cold-like symptoms, but I am feeling good and continue to do the work of the Commonwealth.@FirstLadyVA and I are grateful to everyone for continuing to take #COVID19 seriously––let's keep it up. pic.twitter.com/4ev1X1uKkl— Ralph Northam (@GovernorVA) October 5, 2020
