Billionaire conservative Koch political network won't support Trump in 2020: Report

One of the most conservative political networks in the country will not be supporting President Trump in 2020. 

According to the Washington Post, the Koch network led by billionaire Charles Koch told donors that his group will focus on conservative candidates in statewide and congressional races. 

A spokesman for the group told the Post they plan to make a quote, “significant investment to support policy champions in Senate, House and state races, build broad-based policy coalitions, and to launch a major new initiative to fight poverty in America.” 

Now, the President has never been a fan of the Koch brothers since they decided not to support him in 2016.

He tweeted back in July of 2018, “The globalist Koch Brothers, who have become a total joke in real Republican circles, are against Strong Borders and Powerful Trade. 

I never sought their support because I don’t need their money or bad ideas. They love my Tax & Regulations Cuts, Judicial picks & more.”
