NEW VIDEO: Greg Gianforte Hoppin’ Onboard the Trump Train? That’s New

 

HELENA – Ahead of Donald Trump Jr.’s controversial visit where he’ll attend closed-door fundraising events for New Jersey multimillionaire Greg Gianforte, the Montana Democratic Party released a new video highlighting Gianforte’s evolving support for President Trump.

WATCH: “Flip Flop Forte”

 

As Montana Public Radio pointed out last week“Back during his run for Governor, Gianforte ignored Trump,” yet, “Gianforte has emerged as a neo-Trumpian since he launched his current campaign.”

 

“It’s funny to watch New Jersey multimillionaire Greg Gianforte jumping onboard the Trump train when he went so far to distance himself from Trump during his failed run for governor last fall,” said Nancy Keenan, Executive Director of the Montana Democratic Party. “Montanans deserve a Congressman who will always stand up for them – not someone who only decides to blindly follow his party's leaders in Washington when it’s politically advantageous.”

See the change yourself, in Gianforte’s own words:
