Trump goes after Thune via Twitter, Noem defends

PIERRE, S.D. — Donald Trump took to Twitter this evening to call out South Dakota Senator John Thune after Thune made comments regarding some GOP members support of Trump challenges to the 2020 election.

“The thing they’ve got to remember is, it’s just not going anywhere. I mean, in the Senate it would go down like a shot dog…and I just don’t think it makes a lot of sense to put everybody through this when you know what the ultimate outcome is going to be,” Thune told Capitol Hill reporters Monday night.

Shortly after Trumps tweet was published, Governor Kristi Noem shared her thoughts on the Presidents remarks on her personal Twitter page.

Noem says she will not be challenging Thune’s seat when reelection time comes, however, she did express her intent to run for Governor again in 2022.

Rapid City Mayor Steve Allender also chimed in on the action, stating that Thune’s statements were “the logical conclusion.”
