Trump congratulates Stewart, calls Kaine 'total stiff' on Twitter

RICHMOND, Va. (AP) -- President Donald Trump has congratulated his loyalist Corey Stewart for winning Virginia’s Republican Senate primary. The president’s tweet also calls Virginia’s Democratic Sen. Tim Kaine a “total stiff,” saying he’s “weak on crime and borders, and wants to raise your taxes through the roof.”

Trump’s tweet just before 6 a.m. Wednesday also says Stewart has “a major chance of winning!”

Stewart is an outspoken defender of Confederate symbolism. He says he plans a “vicious” general election campaign against Kaine, who battled Trump as Hillary Clinton’s vice presidential candidate and has a huge fundraising advantage.
