( - President Donald Trump put out a Tweet on Saturday night saying that Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam’s 2017 Republican opponent, Ed Gillespie, must now be thinking it was malpractice and dereliction of duty for his opposition research staff not to find the photo on Ralph Northam’s medical school yearbook page that shows one man in black face and another in a Ku Klu Klan outfit.

Trump said he believed that if Gillespie’s campaign had found that “terrible picture” in Northam’s yearbook before the election, Gillespie would have won by 20 points.

As it turned out, Northam defeated Gillespie 53.9 percent to 45.0 percent.

“Ed Gillespie, who ran for Governor the Great State of Virginia against Ralph Northam, must now be thinking Malpractice and Dereliction of Duty with regard to his Opposition Research Staff,” Trump tweeted.

“If they find that terrible picture before the election,” Trump said, “he wins by 20 points!”
