Donald Trump, Jr: Time to start saying ‘former’ Senator Doug Jones

In a statement to Yellowhammer News on Wednesday, Donald Trump, Jr. reacted to the confirmation that Senator Doug Jones (D-AL) will vote to convict President Donald Trump on both articles of impeachment.

“The great myth that Doug Jones is some kind of ‘moderate’ has been completely debunked,” the president’s eldest son said.

“The good news is that he’ll be gone in a matter of months and replaced by the kind of America First senator the great people of Alabama deserve,” Trump concluded.

He also quipped in a tweet that it is time to start referring to Jones as “*former senator Doug Jones.”

A competitive Republican primary cycle is currently ramping up to determine who will face Jones in the upcoming general election. The GOP primary will be held March 3.

“Don Jr.” in recent months spoke exclusively to Yellowhammer News about the ultimate goal of defeating Jones in November. Read more here.
