Andrew Gillum thrashes Trump for calling him a ‘thief’: ‘He’s howling because he’s weak’

Published

Democratic Florida gubernatorial candidate Andrew Gillum on Monday hit back hard at President Donald Trump after the president accused him of being a “thief” on Twitter.

In a statement issued Monday morning, Trump called Gillum “a thief” who is “Mayor of poorly run Tallahassee, said to be one of the most corrupt cities in the Country!”

Trump has taken a keen interest in the race for Florida governor, especially after his personally endorsed candidate, Ron DeSantis, got repeatedly thrashed at debates with Gillum last week.

Gillum did not take the president’s insults lying down, however, and called out Trump for not having the guts to tag him in his latest tweet.

“On Twitter there is a choice between having the courage to @ the person you are trash talking, or not,” Gillum wrote. “Donald Trump is howling because he’s weak. Florida, go vote today.”

Gillum has maintained a consistent lead over DeSantis across multiple polls of the Florida governor’s race, and the Real Clear Politics polling average currently shows him up by 3.2 percentage points.

There are questions as to whether Kanye West is running a "spoiler" bid for president to help re-elect his friend, Donald Trump, according to a new report by The New York Times.

"At least four people who have been active in Republican politics are linked to Kanye West’s attempt to get on the presidential ballot this year. The connection raises questions about the aims of the entertainer’s effort and whether it is regarded within the G.O.P. as a spoiler campaign that could aid President Trump, even as those close to Mr. West have expressed concerns about his mental health as he enters the political arena," the newspaper reported.
