ICYMI: Terry McAuliffe Criticizes Youngkin For Trump Ties, But He Has His Own

May 14, 2021

Washington insider Terry McAuliffe repeatedly criticized Republican nominee Glenn Youngkin for his ties to former President Donald Trump while failing to disclose the Trump ties of his own, according to a report from Fox News.

On Tuesday, McAuliffe launched an attack ad slamming Youngkin for his relationship with Trump and also bashed Youngkin’s endorsement from the former president.

But what McAuliffe neglected to mention was the $25,000 he took from Trump in 2009 for his failed gubernatorial bid.

According to Fox News, he also “toasted Trump at the 2017 National Governors Association dinner after the former president referred to him as a ‘friend’ that he has known for a ‘long, long time,’” and he played golf with Trump at the Trump International Golf Club in West Palm Beach in 2002.

Fox News: “‘I just want to toast you, Mr. President, and say we want to work with you on those ideals that have instilled and brought all of us governors together. That we can respectively grow our states and grow our nation to be truly the great destiny that we are,’ said McAuliffe.”

“Washington insider Terry McAuliffe’s imaginary political dynasty is falling faster than his Chinese electric car company.” Said Virginia Rising Executive Director Tucker Davis. “Virginians deserve real leadership, and McAuliffe’s blatant hypocrisy and failed record should be disqualifying.”
