'How Did He Get Elected?': Trump Blasts Sen. Jon Tester, Asks Voters to 'Right Their Wrong' in November

08 July, 2018

Trump's speech on Thursday night contained a number of genuinely unsafe lines, lines no president before Trump would even considering uttering among a small group of friends - much less in front of thousands of people. While Tester opposed Trump's first Supreme Court nominee, Neil Gorsuch, and the Republican tax bill, he has also taken flak from the left for a bill easing the rules on banks.

U.S. Sen. Jon Tester speaks with a supporter during an event at the Tester campaign headquarters in Billings, Mont., June 8, 2018.

Montana, which elects both Republicans and Democrats to statewide office, strongly supported Trump in the 2016 presidential election, leading both Senate candidates to compete for Trump supporters. Jon Tester (D) this November.

Trump championed legal immigration on a merit system, noting that businesses are coming back to the USA, wages are going up, and that we "need people".

Trump accused Tester of saying one thing in Montana and doing the other in Washington D.C., and criticized him for voting against ending Obamacare and the GOP tax cut. "Jon Tester showed his true colors with his shameful, dishonest attacks on a great man". "And they don't know who they are playing with, folks", Trump said. "I put him into the world of politics", Mr. Trump said.

A local NBC affiliate reports that about 200 people gathered outside the rally in Great Falls.

Trump is boosting Tester's challenger, State Auditor Matt Rosendale, at Thursday's rally in Great Falls. "After Donald Trump mocks the #MeToo movement and makes up a Low IQ score for Maxine Waters to make a crowd cheer... would once again like to thank Melania Trump on her wonderful job with her anti-bullying and "Be Best" initiatives".

The online version of the Serbian newspaper Blic wrote on June 23 that the gesture "shamefully provoked our fans". With one group game remaining, they will not want to be without three of their key players.


Trump's rally on Thursday was a classic display of virtuoso demagoguery and hardball populism that has already been aimed at red-state Democrats like Sens. Ever the fan of Twitter nicknames, he's dubbed her "Pocahontas", referring to an accusation popularized by Warren's 2012 Senate race opponent Scott Brown, who said the senator of falsified claims of Native American heritage in order to gain a teaching job at Harvard. On Thursday, the Department of Health and Human Services announced it would conduct DNA tests as part of the effort to reunite migrant children who were separated from their parents as a result of the White House's "zero tolerance" immigration policy.

"We will take that little kit and say - but we have to do it gently, because we're in the #MeToo generation, so have to be very gentle", Trump said to laughter.

"Pocahontas, I apologize", Mr. Trump said. To the fake Pocahontas, I won't apologize'. "You're going to get on your side a real Montana fighter". He called her a "low IQ individual", estimating her IQ to fall in the "low 60s".

USA intelligence agencies say Putin meddled in the 2016 election to benefit Trump.

President Trump spent the vast majority of the hour-plus speech hitting on familiar themes: trade, taxes, immigration, protests by National Football League players, the economy, the press, better relations with Russian Federation and North Korea, his proposed "space force", and the Supreme Court vacancy. He said the European Union and China had been taking advantage of the US but said that he was in the process of correcting any trade imbalances.

Trump then moved to a number of global issues, saying he planned to make it clear that certain North Atlantic Treaty Organisation members must "start paying the bills". Mr. Trump did not mention Pruitt Thursday.
