President Donald Trump Makes Endorsements in New York Democrat Primaries, Sending Races Into Chaos
President Donald Trump has made endorsements in the New York Democrat primary elections, which has fomented a great deal of chaos within these races.
Trump has endorsed Congressional candidates Dan Goldman and Carolyn Maloney, both of whom are facing far-left progressive primary challengers, less than a week before the voters will decide.
“Lawyer Dan Goldman is running for Congress, NY-10, and it is my great honor to Strongly Endorse him. I do this not because of the fact that he headed up the Impeachment Committee and lost, but because he was honorable, fair, and highly intelligent,” Trump wrote in a post on his Truth Social platform.
Assemblywoman Yuh-Line Niou, a progressive running to challenge Goldman for the seat, jumped on the news to slam her opponent:

“Last week Donald Trump attacked Dan Goldman, who led his impeachment. Now he’s pretending to endorse Goldman. True to form, Trump is trying to meddle in an election,” a Goldman campaign spokesman said.
“This is a pathetic attempt at fooling Democrats who are far smarter than Trump is, and it’s clear that only one candidate in NY-10 is living rent-free in Trump’s head. Buckle up Donald. Dan’s coming for you,” they added.
Trump also endorsed Maloney in her race for re-election in Congress.
“A vote for Carolyn Maloney in NY-12 is a vote for the future! She is a kind and wonderful person, who has always said terrific things about me, and will support me no matter what I do, just as I supported her very early on,” Trump said.
“She begged for a check with no quid pro quo, and I gave it to her,” he added.
Big League Politics has reported on the extreme amount of overreach from Democrats in New York as the far left takes hold over the party:
“New York Governor Kathy Hochul is going to war with the 1st Amendment, exploiting a recent mass shooting in Buffalo in order to attack the Bill of Rights and Constitution.
“The CEOs of [social media] companies need to be held accountable and ensure all of us that they’re taking every step humanly possible to monitor this [racist] information,” Hochul said while appearing on ABC News.
