President Donald J. Trump urged voters to go to the polls to push back against a Democratic “blue wave” in the midterm elections. They know we want the wall, Trump told the raucous crowd at the Las Vegas Convention Center. They want to obstruct it. They want to resist. You know their campaign. They want to resist. Trump added “We don’t want America turning into the next Venezuela.” 😉
Huge crowd heading into the Trump Rally Las Vegas! We will not be silenced! Vote Pro-Trump In November. Turn the Democrats “Blue Wave” into a Tiny Ripple! 🙂

Trump did not mention Christine Blasey Ford, who has accused Kavanaugh of sexually assaulting her at a party when they were in high school more than three decades ago.
President Trump focused his remarks on supporting Kavanaugh and said, I think everything will be just fine. I’m not saying anything about anybody else, but I want to tell you Brett Kavanaugh is one of the finest human beings you ever have the privilege of knowing or meeting.
We’ll have to let it play out, but I want to tell you: He is a fine, fine person.
During a television interview with Fox News before taking the stage, Trump questioned the timing of the allegation. Why didn’t someone call the FBI 36 years ago? he asked.
Trump was in town to stump for Nevada Republican Dean Heller, who is facing a midterm challenge for a U.S. Senate seat by Democratic U.S. Rep. Jacky Rosen. During his speech, Trump listed his accomplishments in office, including his tax cuts and immigration policies, while criticizing opposition from Democrats and the media.
He urged the crowd to vote in order to keep the Republican majorities in both chambers of Congress. “You better go out and vote,” Trump told onlookers. “We’re going to be changing that logo to ‘Keep America Great.’”
He also mocked former President Obama for campaigning for the Democrats running in the midterm elections. When I was running he campaigned harder than Hillary Clinton.
