Trump Endorses Opponent of Never-Trumper Mark Sanford

President Trump, in a tweet on Tuesday, endorsed state Rep. Katie Arrington in her primary bid to unseat Never-Trumper Rep. Mark Sanford (R-SC), taking a shot at Sanford’s previous sex scandal.

Trump wrote that Sanford “has been very unhelpful” in passing major legislation.

“He is MIA and nothing but trouble,” he added. Trump called Arrington, Sanford’s opponent, “tough on crime.”

But the president went in on a personal aspect of Sanford’s life, commenting that Sanford “is better off in Argentina.”

The representative once served as governor of South Carolina and ‘disappeared’ for a period of time. Sanford claimed he was hiking the Appalachian Trail, but he was actually visiting his mistress in Argentina. The state legislature censured him.

Sanford, a consistent thorn in the side of the president, has opposed major parts of Trump’s agenda in Congress.
