Trump sounds triumphant at North Dakota rally

Waters's exhortation came after several high-profile incidents last week in which Trump aides, including press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders and Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen, were confronted at restaurants and forced to leave.

Heitkamp says she also talked about worldwide trade, oil prices and health care-related issues with the president.

Heitkamp says Trump wanted to speak with her about the U.S. Supreme Court vacancy created by the retirement of Justice Anthony Kennedy. "Please keep Maxine ... on the air as the mouthpiece of your party".

The president will arrive in the "Peace Garden State" Wednesday evening, where he will hold a "Make America Great Again" rally in Fargo.

He noted that Heitkamp voted against repealing President Barack Obama's health care law and the Republican tax plan and claims she'll also oppose his Supreme Court Justice pick. Trump won North Dakota by 36 points in 2016.

In regards to the president's rally endorsing U.S. House Rep. Kevin Cramer, R-N.D., and his run for Senate, Heitkamp said she "didn't even watch the speech".

Seems odd, given that North Dakota is 1,500 miles from El Paso, Texas. That appears to be Cramer's strategy to motivate Republican voters in November-that he will continue to be an unquestioning Trump supporter.

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". She also voted against some of his Cabinet nominees.


"One of my biggest critics, a slovenly man named Joe Crowley got his ass kicked by a young woman who had a lot of energy", Trump, who was raised in Jamaica, Queens, said. "I said I'm not anxious about what's happened in the past, I just want to talk about what we're going to do moving forward", Cramer said.

Trump went farther than that in attacking Heitkamp, calling her a "liberal Democrat" who blindly follows "Chuck and Nancy".

"I hate it, I meet these people, they call it the elite", Trump told the crowd, The Hill reported. Heitkamp showed off some moderate chops and sided with the White House on then-Supreme Court Justice nominee Neil Gorsuch.

Ahead of Wednesday night's rally in North Dakota, Trump tweeted that Cramer "is an extraordinary Congressman who will hopefully soon represent this great state as your Senator".

"Political speeches are just that, but the next day, I'm ready to get to work", she said in the statement released late Thursday night.

Can you imagine if I said the things she said?

Trump is also predicting that Democrats will do worse than expected in the upcoming midterm elections.

Trump said he was happy that Pelosi and California Rep. Maxine Waters would remain the faces of the Democratic Party.
