SALT LAKE CITY — Evan McMullin took some shots at Donald Trump on social media Saturday night in response to the Republican nominee’s remarks on McMullin and his supporters in Utah.

Responding to a transcript of comments Trump reportedly made about McMullin and the possibility of him winning Utah, the independent candidate had strong words in response to a charge that no one has, “ever heard of him”.

“[Donald Trump], Yes you’ve never heard of me because while you were harassing women at beauty pageants, I was fighting terrorists abroad,” McMullin tweeted.

That first tweet attracted the most attention, but McMullin had several other remarks as well, including calling Trump a “life-long liberal” who thinks he is “entitled to Utahns’ and other Americans’ votes.”

McMullin used similar language about earning votes rather than expecting them during a visit to Fox 13 News earlier this week, where he contrasted his conservative message with that of Donald Trump and Mike Pence.
