President Donald Trump went on a Sunday morning tweet storm before heading to his Virginia golf course – making an incendiary charge at the state's governor after huge lines of early voters in the states.
Trump retweeted his own tweet from Friday, where he predicted victory in the Old Dominion and attacked Gov. Ralph Northam.
'Voting starts in Virginia TODAY, and we are going to WIN. You have a crazy Governor who wants to take away your guns, which he will do without me in office. He is in favor of executing babies after birth - this isn’t late-term abortion, this is a step way beyond!' Trump wrote.

An Associated Press fact check of a similar claim last week found it to be a 'gross distortion' of Democrat Northam's position on late term abortion. It was a reference to Northam's confusing comments in an interview last year where he said if a woman wants a baby while going into labor, the baby could be 'resuscitated if that’s what the mother and the family desired, and then a discussion would ensue.'
It was presumably a reference by Northam, a pediatric neurologist, to 'palliative care' where medical intervention is denied to a newborn expected to die due to abnormalities.
'Vote!' Trump wrote while firing off the retweet.
