Republican Mark Sanford has been a vocal President Trump critic in the past few months and years, and today he learned what the price to pay for that is when POTUS slammed him on Twitter just hours before an election which he then went on to lose.

Mr. Trump stated: “Mark Sanford has been very unhelpful to me in my campaign to MAGA. He is MIA and nothing but trouble. He is better off in Argentina. I fully endorse Katie Arrington for Congress in SC, a state I love. She is tough on crime and will continue our fight to lower taxes. VOTE Katie!”

The US President referred to Mr. Sanford’s trip to South America in 2009 to have an extra-marital affair while his unknowing staff in the governor’s office famously told reporters he was hiking the Appalachian Trail.

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">Mark Sanford is in trouble. At about 81% reporting, he&#39;s trailing Katie Arrington 46-51 in the GOP race for South Carolina&#39;s District 1.<br><br>Live results: <a href="https://t.co/qx0MQkVRMy">https://t.co/qx0MQkVRMy</a> <a href="https://t.co/ttTTOukkqS">pic.twitter.com/ttTTOukkqS</a></p>&mdash; POLITICO (@politico) <a href="https://twitter.com/politico/status/1006729220310142976?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">June 13, 2018</a></blockquote>

In fact, for more than twenty years, South Carolina voters had forgiven Mr. Sanford for all his quirkiness, his infidelity, and his lies. But that was until three hours before the polls closed and Mr. Trump sent out his tweet.

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">The age of Trump has ushered in the end of a political era in South Carolina: Mark Sanford concedes to Katie Arrington in SC District 1 race, losing his first election <a href="https://t.co/JdWVa06HIC">https://t.co/JdWVa06HIC</a> <a href="https://twitter.com/hashtag/SC01?src=hash&amp;ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">#SC01</a> <a href="https://twitter.com/hashtag/scpol?src=hash&amp;ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">#scpol</a> <a href="https://t.co/kvCrKnM3M8">pic.twitter.com/kvCrKnM3M8</a></p>&mdash; Caitlin Byrd (@MaryCaitlinByrd) <a href="https://twitter.com/MaryCaitlinByrd/status/1006739110990635008?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">June 13, 2018</a></blockquote>

Losing his first election ever, Mr. Sanford was soundly beaten for the Republican nomination for another term in the coastal 1st District around Charleston by state Representative Ms. Katie Arrington, a strong and vocal Trump supporter.

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">.<a href="https://twitter.com/realDonaldTrump?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">@realDonaldTrump</a> - thank you, Mr. President! Together we will continue to Make America Great Again! <a href="https://t.co/LSBnFPYQ7G">https://t.co/LSBnFPYQ7G</a></p>&mdash; Rep.

After she declared victory Ms. Arrington asked Republicans to come together whilst reminding them that: "We are the party of President Donald J. Trump."
