President Donald Trump has backed Rep. Dan Donovan over former Rep. Michael G. Grimm in a heated New York Republican primary, despite the latter casting himself as the pro-Trump candidate backed by the president’s former advisers.
“There is no one better to represent the people of N.Y. and Staten Island (a place I know very well) than @RepDanDonovan, who is strong on Borders & Crime, loves our Military & our Vets, voted for Tax Cuts and is helping me to Make America Great Again,” the president tweeted Wednesday night. “Dan has my full endorsement!”
