Trump Slams Charlie Baker As a RINO

September 25, 2020

Is Massachusetts governor Charlie Baker a Republican In Name Only?

President Donald Trump thinks so.

The president tweeted about Baker on Friday morning, ripping him for his support for universal mail-in ballots in the 2020 general election.

“RINO Governor Charlie Baker of Massachusetts is unsuccessfully trying to defend Mail In Ballots, when there is fraud being found all over the place,” Trump said. “Just look at some of the recent races, or the Trump Ballots in Pennsylvania that were thrown into the garbage. Wrong Charlie!”

Twitter put a warning-label-link rebuttal beneath the president’s text in the tweet.

The tweet comes after the U.S. Department of Justice found seven military ballots that voted for Trump were discarded — fueling concerns of voter fraud.
