Trump Preps Election Day Spin: We Saved The Senate!

  • Trump takes tough line on immigration and Iran in mid-term election campaign

On Wednesday, the President told reporters ahead of a campaign event that Republicans are "doing well in the Senate and it looks like we're doing OK in the House".

"It's no surprise that Joe Donnelly is holding a rally this weekend with Barack H. Obama", Trump said as the crowd jeered. While Donnelly has sought to highlight his cooperation with Trump on issues such as immigration, he voted against last year's tax cuts and this year voted against Trump's choice of Brett Kavanaugh to fill a vacancy on the U.S. Supreme Court.

Republican Strategist and TV news personality Ford O'Connell, however, said that while historical precedent is in Democrats' favor, "the only question here is whether the Republicans in the House can minimize their losses and hold onto the House by a sliver".

Trump has scheduled seven more rallies - in Montana, Florida, Georgia, Tennessee, Ohio, Indiana and Missouri - through Election Day.

Knight coached the Indiana University basketball team for almost 30 years, winning three NCAA championships.

At an airport rally earlier Friday in Huntington, West Virginia, Trump opened the final sprint to the midterms by defending his decision to tweet a video warning of people crossing into the US illegally at the border with Mexico. The ad, condemned as racist, was used in 1988 against Democratic presidential candidate Michael Dukakis, who supported the furlough program when he was governor of MA.

But even if Republicans are swept out of power in the House, Trump seemed unconcerned about the implications, telling a crowd gathered at an airport hangar here: "I'll just figure it out".

His comments came amid a row over a caravan of an estimated 5,000 to 7,000 people mostly from three Latin American countries, El Salvador, Honduras and Guatemala, who are now at the southern U.S. border along Mexico with the intention to enter America. It ominously warns, "Who else would Democrats let in?" and suggests more violence will soon penetrate the border. If this happens, the House will likely begin impeachment proceedings against the President - and if passed by a simple majority, it goes to the Senate which acts as a jury and if it "convicts", it needs to confirm this with a two-thirds majority.

Trump effusively praised Morrisey, the state's attorney general, saying that "he'll always vote for us".

"Trump is helping. He's becoming more and more radioactive", Manley said.


O'Rourke, 46, whose given names are Robert Francis but who goes by Beto, is mounting a suprisingly strong challenge to the 47-year-old Cruz in the reliably Republican "Lone Star State".

Twenty-seven states plus the District of Columbia have recorded more early votes at this point in the campaign than they did in all of 2014, according to The Election Project at the University of Florida, which tracks turnout. Now, after two years, Democrats are eager to get back in the ring and slug it out with the GOP.

President Donald Trump - in an exclusive interview with The Washington Times on Thursday - denounced House Minority Leader Nancy's threat to subpoena the president if Democrats win Congress - calling the threat 'illegal, ' before vowing to take the fight to the Supreme Court.

He says what rock-throwing migrants did to the Mexican military was a "disgrace".

Democrats have gone from being optimistic to confident that they will take back the House of Representatives following the midterm elections.

Trump had said earlier Friday the video was tough "but correct".

Press secretary Sarah Sanders confirmed that the pair voted by absentee ballot "a few weeks ago" in NY, where their primary residence is located. A White House that has struggled to stay on course under favourable circumstances would be tested in dramatic ways. New York's Democratic Gov. Andrew Cuomo is facing Republican Marc Molinaro in the governor's race.

O'Rourke, a three-term congressman and former member of a punk band, is drawing enthusiastic support from many urban dwellers in Texas while Cruz does better in conservative rural areas. It will be held at Allen County War Memorial Coliseum at 6:30 p.m.

The president said a vote for Braun's opponent, incumbent Democrat Sen. That video was timed to the one-year anniversary of Trump's inauguration and meant to promote his immigration agenda.

"Nothing Hoosiers heard tonight distracted them from Rep. Braun's repeated lies about his support for dismantling health care coverage for the 1.1 million Hoosiers with pre-existing conditions or how he'll help Mitch McConnell gut their Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid".
