‘You’re a Criminal’: Internet Destroys Trump For Lying About Virginia Economy Ahead Of Election

In a tweet encouraging Virginia residents to vote for Republican nominee Ed Gillespie for governor, President Trump on Monday claimed that the state’s economy “has been terrible” under Democrats, despite the fact that, under a Democratic governor, Virginia’s unemployment rate dropped from 5.4 percent to 3.7 — one of the lowest in the country.

“The state of Virginia economy, under Democrat rule, has been terrible. If you vote Ed Gillespie tomorrow, it will come roaring back!” Trump tweeted Monday afternoon, the day before voters head to the polls in the pivotal election.

Democrats shot back, arguing that with unemployment at 3.7 percent, it’s difficult to argue the economy isn’t doing well under Democratic control.

“Our unemployment rate has come from 5.4 [percent] all the way to 3.7, the second lowest of any major state in America,” Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe (D) said Monday.

Twitter users also slammed the lying president and the responses were not pretty:

Gillespie and Democrat Ralph Northam are locked in a tight contest ahead of Tuesday’s election, according to polls.

A defeat for Northam would be devastating to Democrats given Trump’s low approval ratings in the state, which Hillary Clinton won in last year’s presidential election.
