Republican Gov. Mike Dunleavy says he was elected to a sustainable budget for the state of Alaska.

President Trump on Wednesday threw his support behind embattled Alaska Gov. Mike Dunleavy as a recall effort against the Republican intensified.

“My friend Mike [Dunleavy] from the Great state of Alaska, is treated very unfairly by the Democrats, because he’s doing an incredible job and the fulfillment of his every promise,” Trump tweeted.

After months of budgeting in an effort to return discord in Alaska, a group called “Recall Dunleavy” launched in August, the necessary number of the necessary to get signatures for the recall vote, in order to move forward. The group accuses Dunleavy of the denial of appointment of a judge, for abuse of state funds, the violation of the separation of powers and incompetent to Veto state funds.

The group needs to go for the collection of signatures from 10 percent of the people who voted in the General election for a recall to front. Dunleavy took office last December.

He added: “No Governor or President will have a stormy time, but sometimes, when you try to change the course, to get a state or a country back on track, it is sometimes very difficult, and you will be people and groups, sometimes against.”
