President Donald Trump on Thursday predicted that Virginia will flip red again following a series of scandals involving the state’s top leading Democrats.
“Democrats at the top are killing the Great State of Virginia. If the three failing pols were Republicans, far stronger action would be taken. Virginia will come back HOME Republican) in 2020!” Trump tweeted Thursday morning.

The president’s tweet comes after Democratic Gov. Ralph Northam signaled his support for a bill that would allow for post-birth abortion — infanticide — if the mother and doctor agreed, and the discovery of a photo that appeared in his 1984 medical school yearbook featuring someone dressed in blackface and someone else in a KKK hood and robe. Northam has claimed that he isn’t in the photo, though it was on his personal page in the yearbook.
Meanwhile, Lt. Gov. Justin Fairfax has been accused by a former female acquaintance of sexual harassment, which he has denied. Fairfax would take over for Northam if he were to step down; Vanessa Tyson said she felt compelled to come forward when she found out that he could be the next governor of Virginia.
Meanwhile, Virginia’s attorney general, Mark Herring, is third in line to the governorship; he admitted this week to wearing blackface during a skit in college.
Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton won Virginia with 49.8 percent of the vote, while 44.4 percent voted for the president. However, that could change, according to POTUS, now that the state’s top three Democrats are embroiled in major scandals.
