President Trump Blasts Ralph Northam Over Racist Yearbook Photo and Comments on Infanticide

President Trump blasted Democrat Governor Ralph Northam in a pair of tweets Saturday night. 

On Friday, Ralph Northam released a statement admitting he was in the racist yearbook photo and apologized for the hurt his decision caused.

Less than 24 hours later and Ralph Northam is walking back his statement.

On Saturday, Northam changed his strategy and stated, “I believe that I am not either of the people in the photo.”

 

President Trump unleashed on Ralph Northam for his changing statements over the racist photo and for his abhorrent comments endorsing infanticide.

The President then blasted Ed Gillespie’s oppo research team for failing to find the yearbook photo of Ralph Northam presumably in blackface or a KKK robe.

In case you missed it, Northam admitted he was in the racist yearbook photo in a statement he released yesterday:

“Earlier today, a website published a photograph of me from my 1984 medical school yearbook in a costume that is clearly racist and offensive,” Northam said.

“I am deeply sorry for the decision I made to appear as I did in this photo and for the hurt that decision caused then and now.”

“This behavior is not in keeping with who I am today and the values I have fought for throughout my career in the military, in medicine, and in public service. But, I want to be clear, I understand how this decision shakes Virginians’ faith in that commitment,” Northam continued.

“I recognize that it will take time and serious effort to heal the damage this conduct has caused. I am ready to do that important work. The first step is to offer my sincerest apology and to state my absolute commitment to living up to the expectations Virginians set for me when they elected me to be their Governor.”

The Virginian Democrat Governor is digging in his heels and refusing to resign despite mounting pressure from both Democrats and Republicans to step down.
