Trump Hits Heitkamp as High Court, 'Maxine' Become Midterm Issues

President Heads to ND for MAGA Rally LIVE STREAM: President Donald Trump holds rally in Fargo, North Dakota on June 27

Trump had once courted Heitkamp, even inviting her to NY to discuss a Cabinet post soon after his 2016 election victory.

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 also touched on Wednesday's announcement by Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy that he was retiring after 31 years on the bench, giving the president a second opportunity to put a justice on the high court and cement the conservative wing.

But he says he's happy that House Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi and Democratic Rep. Maxine Waters of California will remain the faces of the Democratic Party.

In a 70-minute speech to a raucously supportive crowd, with thousands wearing red "Make America Great Again" caps and waving blue "Drain The Swamp" and "Keep America Great" signs, Cramer received several minutes to make his case and Trump gave him a handful of shout-outs. In doing so he took a narrative crafted by incumbent Senator Heidi Heitkamp, one which supposed that the President likes her more, and threw it in the trash.

"Well, here's the good news about Donald Trump: most of the time he's for North Dakota", Cramer responded.

Seems odd, given that North Dakota is 1,500 miles from El Paso, Texas.

Rep. Kevin Cramer, R-ND, speaks at the 2018 North Dakota Republican Party Convention in Grand Forks, N.D., April 7, 2018. "A vote for any Democrat is a vote for Schumer, Pelosi and Maxine - Maxine, she's a beauty".

"Instead she went to Washington and immediately joined Chuck - you know who Chuck is - and Nancy", he told a crowd of almost 6,000 at a Fargo hockey arena. "What I know at this point is we do not have a schedule for a Trump visit", Tim Rasmussen, campaign spokesman, told me.

It is not the first time the president has suggested that he and his supporters are more elite than the elite - initially making such comments at a rally in Duluth, Minnesota last week, when Trump suggested that since he had a better apartment and more money than his detractors, they shouldn't be called elite.

Heitkamp, who said she didn't listen to the speech by Trump at Scheels Arena on Wednesday night before a raucous crowd of about 6,000 people, said she told Trump what she thought about a Supreme Court nominee.

Can you imagine if I said the things she said?

Trump encouraged Cramer, a Republican, to run for the Senate after the third-term congressman initially said he would instead seek re-election.

"They say Trump is starting a trade war", he said.

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

"Frankly, they find this more exciting than the NFL", Trump said of his ratings.
