here’s my story about tonight’s rally: a trademark speech with a surprise dash of love for McConnell https://t.co/D0cRqYr1d6

Trump on @AmyMcGrathKY: "This is an extreme liberal named…chosen by Nancy Pelosi, Maxine Waters and the radical Democrat mob." Says she wants "open borders…socialism [and] to decimate your now thriving coal industry."

Read the comments on the humorous tweet below:
I think he just accused Democrats of killing Davy Crockett.

Yet again, as he's done at past rallies, Trump tells his KY crowd that a huge throng — 25,000 to 35,000 people — are outside because they couldn't get in the packed house, & there are "movie screens" set up so they can watch the rally.
None of that is true.

Everyone out here laughed as the president gave these numbers. “What?!?” one woman said as she scanned the crowd herself. https://t.co/2UGa6bUWXL

Trump now decrying "chain migration" at his Kentucky rally. No mention of his in-laws (the First Lady's parents) benefiting from those very policies as they recently became American citizens.
