Trump Takes on "Globalist" Koch Brothers

Officials with the powerful political network overseen by conservative billionaire Charles Koch on Monday said they do not currently plan to endorse the Republican nominee in North Dakota Rep. Kevin Cramer

Officials with the powerful political network overseen by conservative billionaire Charles Koch on Monday said they do not now plan to help the Republican nominee in one of the GOP's top Senate pickup opportunities this year.

Calling their network "highly overrated", he added: "I have beaten them at every turn".

And little more than three months before the midterm elections, it leaves a marquee Republican Senate campaign without the assistance of one of the conservative movement's most powerful allies as their party fights to maintain control of Congress.

"Heitkamp, we're going to knock her out of the water".

Charles Koch regrets some of the choices he and his political operations have made, and won't make the same mistake again.

A White House spokesman did not immediately respond to questions about when the billionaire president last bought groceries or anything else himself. Heidi Heitkamp's support for rolling back bank regulations.

Brock Turner Appeals, Says He Only Wanted "Outercourse"
Multhaup also accused the jury of reaching their decision by "fill [ing] in the blanks", reports KNTV. He said the jury made "unreasonable inferences" that led to Turner's convictions.

Over the weekend, network patriarch, 82-year-old Charles Koch, refused to criticize Trump personally when The Associated Press asked whether the president should bear any responsibility for the divisive tone in Washington.

Charles Koch has taken the lead after his younger brother, David, stepped down from their political group and their company Koch Industries earlier in June due to poor health.

The conservative Koch network is refusing to help the Republican Party win North Dakota's high-profile Senate contest after determining the GOP challenger in the race is no better than the Democrat.

The president's social media posts came after Tim Phillips, the president of Americans for Prosperity, said Monday at a Koch network summit in Colorado Springs, Colorado, that the group would not be backing Cramer because his policy positions do no align with the organization's. He appeared at a Koch gathering last October in NY to seek the donors' support for the massive tax cut package Trump signed into law late a year ago. And some Trump loyalists were furious with the Kochs' work to undermine Trump and his agenda even before Monday's news dropped. "The Kochs see that being ripped away, thus the open contempt for the president and his movement", said former White House chief strategist Steve Bannon. They never wanted to be Democrats. "They have always been more libertarian independents".

Officials for the Koch network said that AFP is now involved in seven races this midterm cycle across six states: Wisconsin, Missouri, Tennessee, Michigan, Nevada and Florida.

The pair have championed free trade and have launched a multimillion-dollar campaign to oppose Trump's tariffs, which have targeted China, Canada, Mexico and the European Union, among others.
