I hope to see the great Governor of South Dakota @KristiNoem, run against RINO @SenJohnThune, in the upcoming 2022 Primary.

The President’s Tweet comes after Sen. Thune spoke on the Senate floor against the $2,000 stimulus checks for Americans.
“This proposal is a shot-gun approach where a rifle makes a lot more sense. If you really want to help people who need this the most at a time when we are running a $26 trillion debt borrowing every penny that we’re making available to do this we ought to sit down and figure out the most efficient, effective, targeted way possible, this absolutely does not do that,” said Sen. Thune.
