  • President Heads to ND for MAGA Rally

Trump is known for his freewheeling style during campaign rallies and will have plenty of topics to hit on, including the news earlier Wednesday that Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy, a key swing vote on the court, is retiring next month. Together, we are MAKING AMERICA SAFE AND GREAT AGAIN!

Trump mentioned Senate Minority Leader Charles E. Schumer (D-N.Y.) and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif) and said: "Now they have a new leader, who's the new leader?"

"You are the people who farm the prairie, tamed the badlands and squeezed oil out of rock", Trump said, speaking directly to the North Dakota citizens who lived under "big attractive skies".

Trump, at a North Dakota rally where he was campaigning against the state's sole incumbent Democrat, said Kennedy's retirement added a new urgency to increasing the number of GOP votes in the U.S. Senate. He was also greeted by North Dakota Gov. Doug Burgum and his wife, Kathryn Helgaas Burgum, as well as North Dakota National Guard Adjutant General Al Dohrmann and 119th Wing Commander Col. Britt Hatley. "That's what you need, and that's Kevin Cramer", Trump said.

She said the duty of picking a justice is "one of the most important roles of a US senator, and I don't take this job lightly". But, referring to the rally, said, "Maybe because of this she will be forced to vote 'yes'".

Mr. Trump ticked off a list of votes cast by Ms. Heitkamp that challenged conservative values, including votes against repealing Obamacare, a crackdown on sanctuary cities and banning late-term abortions.

In a statement, Heitkamp dismissed Trump's attacks as "election-year politics" and said she was eager to work with Republicans, "including with the president".

Trump, campaigning for Republican Rep. Kevin Cramer, who is challenging Democratic Sen. She said she hoped the president will sit down with farmers and oil industry people "who have been calling me and are concerned about trade wars" as the result of tariffs imposed by Trump.

Mike Murphy, a GOP strategist, said having a Supreme Court retirement and confirmation in a midterm election year will make a "red-hot" election year even hotter - especially because a fifth consistently liberal justice could bring hot-button issues like abortion and gay rights onto the court's docket.

"Can you imagine if I said the things she said?"

"We are going to make trade fair and reciprocal", Trump said.

The president also mocked Democrats' talk of a "blue wave" in November that help their party take back the House, saying they "keep talking about this blue wave", but "their blue wave is really sputtering pretty badly".

"I hate it, I meet these people, they call it the elite", Trump told the crowd, The Hill reported.
