President Donald Trump on Thursday railed against Sen. Lisa Murkowski (R-AK), calling her disloyal in the wake of her public criticism, pointing out all the money he gave her state and saying he would back any candidate opposing her “good or bad.”
Trump was responding to Sen. Murkowski’s praise of former Defense Secretary James Mattis for criticism of Trump’s response to the protests. The Alaska senator also revealed she was “struggling” over whether she will support Trump’s 2020 reelection campaign.
Trump took to Twitter to rant about it.
“Few people know where they’ll be in two years from now, but I do, in the Great State of Alaska (which I love) campaigning against Senator Lisa Murkowski,” Trump tweeted. he added: “Get any candidate ready, good or bad, I don’t care, I’m endorsing. If you have a pulse, I’m with you!”
Twitter users quickly deluged the president in mockery for his threat:
…Unrelated, I gave Alaska ANWR, major highways, and more. Get any candidate ready, good or bad, I don’t care, I’m endorsing. If you have a pulse, I’m with you!

You’ll be in jail in 2 years. Also, your decision to endorse anyone with a pulse shows you care nothing about the state or Republican Party. You only care that Murkowski spoke out against you (barely).

Thank you! I supported this bum the first two years of his presidency and it’s one of my biggest regrets today..

You lost it, old man. Just give up already and enjoy golden years in a nice room with padded walls.

"If you have a pulse, I’m with you". That's pretty much how you pick all the candidates you endorse, isn't it? Meanwhile, while you're attacking your own, there are 109,000 dead Americans and you have no plan and do not care.https://t.co/X8BmcyGdDh@maddogpac pic.twitter.com/GQgpEpQZch

Your faux gangster mantra “when they hit me, I hit back 10x as hard” is beneath the dignity of your office and serves as stark reminder that ALL of your actions in EVERY circumstance are ONLY for your personal benefit. You continually betray those whom you were elected to serve.
