Following Ralph Northam's victory over Ed Gillespie on Tuesday night, President Donald Trump sounded off on Twitter saying the GOP candidate "did not embrace me."
Earlier Tuesday, Trump had urged voters to show their support for Gillespie tweeting that Northam is "weak on crime, weak on our GREAT VETS."
