President Donald Trump on Wednesday praised Republican Corey Stewart for advancing through the GOP primary in Virginia, saying that voters shouldn’t “underestimate” the controversial Stewart while labeling Democratic incumbent Sen. Tim Kaine “a total stiff.”

The conservative Stewart has pushed a vehemently anti-immigration stance, has defended confederate civil war monuments and displayed the confederate flag at events.

“Congratulations to Corey Stewart for his great victory for Senator from Virginia. Now he runs against a total stiff, Tim Kaine, who is weak on crime and borders, and wants to raise your taxes through the roof. Don’t underestimate Corey, a major chance of winning!” the president tweeted early Wednesday morning after he landed at Andrews Air Force Base from his trip to Singapore to meet with North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un.

Stewart won the primary Tuesday night over former Green Beret and Virginia Delegate Nick Freitas (R-Culpeper), who had the support of the GOP establishment.

After Stewart’s win, Bill Bolling, Virginia’s former Republican lieutenant governor, posted on Twitter his displeasure with Stewart’s nomination.


“I am extremely disappointed that a candidate like Corey Stewart could win the Republican nomination for U.S. Senate. This is clearly not the Republican Party I once knew, loved and proudly served. Every time I think things can’t get worse they do, and there is no end in sight,” he stated.

Kaine was Hillary Clinton’s running mate during the 2016 presidential election.
