Their network is highly overrated, I have beaten them at every turn.
The president's social media posts came after Tim Phillips, the president of Americans for Prosperity, said Monday at a Koch network summit in Colorado Springs, Colorado, that the group would not be backing Cramer because his policy positions do no align with the organization's.
While the two have backed Trump over taxes and judicial appointments, the Kochs have joined other business groups as vocal critics of the president's trade policies.
"I made...them richer", he continued in a second tweet. They have specifically criticized the White House over Trump's "protectionist" trade policies, which they fear could trigger a US recession in addition to a looming worldwide trade war.
The presidential insult followed a weekend gathering of Koch officials who repeatedly condemned Trump's trade policies, the explosion of government spending under his watch and his divisive tone. The Kochs plan to ignore North Dakota's high-profile Senate contest. "We're going to more directly deal with that and hold people responsible for their commitments".

Phillips said AFP has met with Cramer's team to express their concerns, "but maybe he needs to hear from you, give Kevin Cramer a call", Phillips urged a ballroom filled with donors who have contributed a minimum of $100,000 to the network. The Kochs have been very anti-Trump.
"Where did the money go, what do they really spend it on, and how much, if anything, do they really put into the network?"
Though the Koch brothers' alleged reasons for not supporting Cramer are valid, Heitkamp's seat is likely one the GOP can pick off, which means the libertarian billionaires could torpedo the party's chance to solidify its majority in the Senate. Bannon asked in a brief interview with The Associated Press.
But during a private briefing over the weekend, donors were given a hand-out that indicated the network is also now not supporting Senate candidates in two other key states - in and Nevada - according to a photo of the document obtained by POLITICO. We do the ground game because we're not going to equivocate on who we're going to support.
Officials for the Koch network said that AFP is now involved in seven races this midterm cycle across six states: Wisconsin, Missouri, Tennessee, Michigan, Nevada and Florida.
Asked if Democrats were to retake control of the House, he said, "I don't care what initials are in front, or after, somebody's name...."
