Trump attacked Blumenthal in his endorsement of Levy, calling the Democratic senator “a fool to be laughed at and ridiculed” for making up a “terrible fairy tale” about his military record.
“Leora Levy is running for the U.S. Senate to represent the great state of Connecticut,” Trump Say. “The current senator was a fool to be ridiculed and ridiculed, for years saying he was a brave war hero in Vietnam, then it turned out that he had never been to Vietnam.”

“‘Danang’ Dick acted so sanctimoniously and righteously when in reality he was a coward who has been escaping this disgusting crime against our military for years,” Trump said. Withdrew, in tears, but he didn’t have the courage to leave the race in disgrace in the election a few days later.”
Trump called on Connecticut voters to make Blumenthal “pay for what he did and end your status as a U.S. Senator.”
The former president praised Levy for “doing a fantastic job in life” and mentioned her service on the Republican National Committee.
“In the Senate, she will work to grow the economy, protect the border, fight for energy independence, support our military and our veterans, defend election integrity, protect the Second Amendment, and fight violence and vicious crime. The highest level in Connecticut history. ,” Trump said.
Trump also criticized Levy’s opponent, Themis Klarides, for being backed by “the worst 3 RINOs in the country.”
trump card Say:
Her opponent, Themis Klarides, was backed by the 3 worst RINOs in the country, Larry Hogan’s nominee slumped the other night, and Charlie Baker failed in Massachusetts Get the GOP nomination (thank you, President Trump!), then resign, and of course the “scruffy” Chris Christie, who left with the lowest approval rating of any governor in New Jersey history and whose most recent book had the lowest sales Record every TV interview.
Klarides has the support of the Connecticut Republican Party.
Trump also accused Clarides of being weak on crime, the U.S. military, veterans and the Second Amendment.
“Miss. Clarides is weak on crime, weak on our military and veterinary, and will not protect our beleaguered Second Amendment,” Trump said. “She accused the US of ‘systemic racism’ and, very importantly, she had no chance of defeating Dick Danang despite his fake and fraudulent military career.”
“Leora Levy is an amazing woman, she works hard and smart and will never let you down. What a victory she will be defeating the corrupt Richard Blumenthal in November. Leora has my full and complete support,” Trump concluded.
