Donald Trump’s message for West Virginia voters to “stay home” is making national headlines after the presumptive Republican presidential nominee told more than 10,000 people packed into the Charleston Civic Center not to vote in the primary election on Tuesday.
“The vote was supposed to be on Tuesday, but now I can say ‘stay home, but get twice as many people in November,'” Trump told the crowd.
“What I want you to do is save your vote. You know, you don’t have to vote anymore. Save your vote for the general election. Forget this one, the primary is gone,” he said.
His remarks immediately garnered feedback, even from his own party.
