After the Kochs said they would not back the Republican in a key Senate race, Donald Trump duly took aim at the conservative billionaire brothers, calling them “globalists” and a “total joke” with a “highly overrated” political network.

The midterm elections, in which many analysts expect a “blue wave” to place the House and possibly the Senate under Democratic control, are less than 100 days away.
Republicans across the US will be alarmed by such loud shots in a fight between a president hugely popular with party members and Charles and David Koch, the libertarian industrialists who have poured money into achieving rightwing legislative priorities.
