say they're punishing every Trump loyalist in the 2018 election season. Notably, the Kochs said they also will not support the incumbent in that race, Democratic Sen. He appeared at a Koch gathering last October in NY to seek the donors' support for the massive tax cut package Trump signed into law late a year ago. The Koch network boasts an army of grassroots activists across 36 states and has promised to spend between $300 million and $400 million on politics and policy this election cycle alone.

Trump asserted Tuesday night at a rally in Tampa, Florida, that he's the most popular person in the Republican Party. Although Trump's name is never mentioned, it's an obvious criticism of Trump's tariffs and escalating trade war. The campaign is focusing on states with Democratic senators that Mr. Trump won in 2016.

"This network will no longer follow anyone's lead or be taken for granted", Seidel said, as donors applauded. "I hadn't heard them do that before".

Though the Koch brothers' alleged reasons for not supporting Cramer are valid, Heitkamp's seat is likely one the GOP can pick off, which means the libertarian billionaires could torpedo the party's chance to solidify its majority in the Senate.

"What they have to do is shut up and get with the program, OK?"


After first running attack ads against Heitkamp earlier in the year, the Kochs last month launched a digital ad campaign thanking the North Dakota Democrat for voting to roll back Obama-era banking regulations.

"We've had divisiveness long before Trump became president and we'll have it long after he's no longer president", he said. And they say they were willing to form alliances with Democrats to achieve top objectives.

And in a variety of other ways, the Koch network remains closely aligned with the Republican agenda. The network is also supporting numerous House and gubernatorial candidates.

Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich, another Trump ally, took a darker view.

Trump's backing has been crucial for some of the network's biggest legislative efforts, including overhauling the Department of Veterans Affairs.


The Kochs were equally concerned about the Trump administration's "protectionist" trade policies, which have sparked an global trade war and could trigger a USA recession, Charles Koch said.

Charles Koch, the chairman and CEO of the industrial conglomerate Koch Industries, oversees the network of about 700 donors. Two nice guys with bad ideas.

Charles Koch oversees Wichita-based Koch Industries.

I'm sure that Charles Koch regards Trump as a vulgar halfwit, no matter how much money the president is shoveling into Koch's pocket. "I'm into hating the sin, not the sinner".
