WASHINGTON (Newsradio 1020 KDKA) - President Donald Trump has reposted a tweet endorsing Sean Parnell who is running to oppose local Congressman Conor Lamb in the general election.

Parnell is unopposed in the Republican June primary.

Trump called Lamb an “American Fraud” in his tweet.

The president falsely claims in his post that Lamb voted for Nancy Pelosi as Speaker of the House in 2019, but he did not. He voted for Massachusetts Democrat Rep. Joe Kennedy III.

Sean Parnell is an American Hero. Conor Lamb has proven to be an American fraud, and a puppet for Crazy Nancy Pelosi. He said he would NOT vote for her for Speaker, and did. Will kill 2A. Voted to impeach (on nothing). A TOTAL & COMPLETE Sean Parnell Endorsement! https://t.co/v1OnY0MI8m
