Commentary: Heitkamp’s efforts to manufacture a special relationship with President Trump are getting pathetic
This week President Donald Trump came to Fargo in support of U.S. Senate candidate Kevin Cramer. In doing so he took a narrative crafted by incumbent Senator Heidi Heitkamp, one which supposed that the President likes her more, and threw it in the trash.
But yesterday evening Senator Heitkamp was on social media promoting a meeting she had with President Trump about the appointment of a new Supreme Court justice. To hear Heitkamp herself describe the meeting it’s as if it were all orchestrated strictly for her benefit.
