2016 Presidential Candidate Waits For Election Day To Say Gillespie Pushes ‘White Nationalism’

Former presidential candidate Evan McMullin waited for election day in Virginia to come out against Republican gubernatorial candidate Ed Gillespie, saying he “peddled fear and white nationalism” on Twitter Tuesday.

The unsuccessful presidential candidate also hit back against President Donald Trump’s endorsement of Gillespie. President Trump galvanized Virginia voters Tuesday morning, tweeting that Gillespie would go a long way toward cutting violent crime and gang activity across the state.

Several users took offense to McMullin’s response, claiming Virginia has a huge gang problem, with one of the highest density’s of MS-13 members in the country. Last month, a Washington Post fact check inadvertently proved Gillespie’s point on gang crime in Vriginia when it reported that police in Virginia’s wealthiest county are equaled–if not outnumbered–by MS-13 members.
