Alleged Democratic Senator Manchin says he might support Trump

Mediaite - According to a new profile, [West Virginia Senator Joe] Manchin’s position on the president might evolve into complete endorsement down the line.

“I’m open to supporting the person who I think is best for my country and my state,” Manchin said to Politico when asked about his 2020 endorsement. “If his policies are best, I’ll be right there.”

The piece notes that Manchin could end up supporting Trump’s re-election in 2020 if he manages to stay in the senate after the upcoming midterm elections...

“I’m with him sometimes more than other Republican senators are with him,” said Manchin. “Washington Democrats are making it more difficult for me to be a West Virginia Democrat.”
