In an earlier speech to supporters, Arrington said, ” It’s the year of the woman. It’s the year of Trump. Let’s send someone who is going to go to Washington and be supportive of what we, in South Carolina, want – a Conservative agenda.”

Trump accuses Twitter of ‘censoring’ him in bizarre rant on Fox Business
President Donald Trump on Wednesday accused Twitter of "censoring" him in an angry rant on Fox Business.
During an interview with Fox Business's Maria Bartiromo, the president said that Twitter was intentionally lowering his follower count, which he claimed made it "harder for me to get out the message."
Even though Trump currently has more than 61 million people following him on Twitter, he claimed that he should have much more and said that Twitter executives were to blame.
"These people are all Democrats, it's totally biased towards Democrats," the president fumed. "If I announced tomorrow that I was a liberal Democrat i would pick up 5,000 followers!"
Reporting team that busted Trump’s tax secrets crumbles — thanks to ‘wrecking ball’ NYT journalist
In October 2018, The New York Times published a landmark story on how President Donald Trump and his siblings committed large-scale tax fraud in the 1990s to maximize their inheritance.
Even for a story about Trump, who is seemingly invulnerable to financial scandal, it was hugely consequential — among other things, it led to Trump's sister resigning as a federal judge — and the reporters won a Pulitzer Prize for their efforts.
Iran unbowed by US ‘insults’, says supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei
Iran's supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei said Wednesday that his country remains unbowed by pressure exerted by the United States and its "insults" against the Islamic republic.
"The Iranian nation seeks dignity, independence and progress; that's why pressures by cruel enemies do not affect Iranians," Khamenei said in a speech to a crowd in Tehran.
"The graceful Iranian nation has been accused and insulted by the world's most vicious regime, the US, which is a source of wars, conflicts and plunder," he said, quoted by his office.
"The Iranian nation won't give up over such insults," said Khamenei.
