Trump blasts conservative megadonors Koch network as 'overrated'

02 August 2018

"Any protectionism at any level, certainly at a national level, is very detrimental", Charles Koch told reporters at the event in Colorado Springs, Colo.

Heitkamp is seen as one of the most vulnerable Senate Democrats up for reelection.

On Monday, the political advocacy network created by the billionaire industrialists announced it would not back the GOP candidate in the North Dakota Senate race.

Charles Koch, who remains in business after his brother, David, took a step back due to health issues in June, recently distanced himself from Trump's policies and bashed his protectionist economics.

Republican Senator Rand Paul supports Trump’s Supreme Court nominee
Manchin was one of three red-state Democrats in April 2017 to vote for confirming Neil Gorsuch to the high court. All but one, from Quinnipiac, find the support for his confirmation outstripping the opposition.

Donors also discussed the status of the network's work on a range of priorities for the constellation of Koch-aligned groups, including free speech on college campuses, supporting anti-poverty programs in communities, conducting new research in an effort to reduce recidivism rates, and more.

The presidential insult followed a weekend gathering of Koch officials who repeatedly condemned Trump's trade policies, the explosion of government spending under his watch and his divisive tone. I don't need Koch money, he wrote, and the brothers are peddling bad ideas. In order to keep everyone in line, they've decided to make some mostly symbolic gestures toward supporting a Democrat here or there, like taking out a web ad thanking Democratic senator Heidi Heitkamp for voting for a bill to deregulate banks.

The Kochs were equally concerned about Trump's "protectionist" trade policies, which have sparked a trade war and could trigger a U.S. recession, Koch said. "We're going to more directly deal with that and hold people responsible for their commitments". - The political groups affiliated with billionaire conservative businessman Charles Koch will not support Rep. Kevin Cramer's (R-N.D.) bid against Sen. Thus, the support for Heitkamp, who took on fellow Democrat Elizabeth Warren from MA and fought to roll back the regulatory measures in the Dodd-Frank regulatory apparatus.

"That's not right", he told the Associated Press.

Tesla also said it was working on a new version of its Autopilot semi-autonomous software that would have greater safety features. CEO Elon Musk said that the goal now is to remain profitable and record positive cash flows in every quarter going forward.

His tweets come after a spokesman for the brothers' network accused the White House of stoking divisiveness. We do the ground game because we're not going to equivocate on who we're going to support.

But recently, Koch opened up to the possibility of funding Democratic candidates as they try to take both houses of Congress in November.

Early morning Twitter attacks by the President of the United States on those who criticize him, have become commonplace these days.

The Kochs have not ruled out similar moves in top-tier Senate races in Indiana, Missouri, Montana, and West Virginia, although they are actively working to help elect Republican Senate candidates in Florida, Tennessee and Wisconsin.
