Ramsey Trump in Indiana: President Trump and Vice President Pence campaign in Indiana for Senate candidate Mike Braun – live update


President Trump and Vice President Mike Pence joined forces in a rally in Indianapolis, Indiana on Friday night, the first of two rallies, Mr Trump going to the state of battle before Election Day. Trump's Indianapolis rally was similar to his earlier race in West Virginia, although he did not mention his previous theory that the Republicans could lose the House of Representatives.

The emergence of a campaign that supports Indiana Democratic candidates, particularly Senate candidate Mike Braun. Pence, the former governor of Indiana, has also made a series of campaign events in recent days on behalf of Democratic candidates across the country.

The President has focused heavily on illegal immigration in the days before the elections, a topic that could motivate Mr Trump's base to be proven and voted in the media even if he is not in the polls. This fight included a well-known rhetoric about immigration, especially a migratory caravan to the US from Central America, weeks away from their arrival at the border.

"Democrats want to invite caravans after caravans," Mr Trump said falsely, adding that Democrats want caravans "filled with illegal aliens to flood in our country." It was also discussed that he believed the caravan would help Republicans mobilize on election day. "Between Justice Cavana and the caravan, you are activated," he said, referring to Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh, who was accused of being sexually assaulted.

"A blue wave will amount to a wave of crime and a red wave will be equal to justice and security," said Trump. Facing a weak point he understands – Mr Trump's approval among women – said border security was a matter for women because they "want security." He also reiterated the untrue claim that he won women in 2016. In fact, he won white women, but women voted in total for Hillary Clinton.

At one point, Mr Trump brought a renowned and beloved former coach of Indiana Hoosiers. He soon led the crowd with a song of "Go," Donald!

Pence spoke in front of Mr Trump as a warm-up for the president, reinforcing the crowd, discussing the achievements of the administration.

"I'm here today because I'm with President Trump," Pence said. "We are here because President Trab and I are standing on shoulder with Indiana's next big senator, Mike Brown." He added that "it is time to vote" no "for Joe," referring to Democratic Senator Joe Donnelly.

Mr Trump also attacked Donnelly, reviving a manicure he had given to the senator at previous meetings: Sleepin Joe. "It's no surprise that Joe Donnelly is conducting a rally this weekend with Barack Obama," said Trump, writing with his fingers Obama's mean middle, meaning "Hussein." Mr Trump was the main supporter of the conspiracy theory of birther, who suggested that Obama was not born in the United States.

Donnelly, one of the Senate's most vulnerable Democrats, for re-election this year, and the outcome of the race could determine the Party's balance of the Senate. However, despite the fact that Mr Trump won Indiana with almost 20 points, Donnelly mostly retains a fine lead in the ballots. A poll by Fox News on Wednesday found Donnelly leads Braun among potential voters from 45% to 38%, while 5% supports Libertarian Lucy Brenton. An NBC News / Marist survey also released on Wednesday showed that Donnelly leads Braun among potential voters 44 to 41 percent, with 8 percent supporting Brenton. However, a Poll of CBS News Battleground Tracker published on Sunday found that Braun leads Donnelly among potential voters 46 to 43 percent, and the CBS News Battleground Tracker scores the race as "Republican edge."

Mr Trump climbed his appearances in the campaign and his incendiary rhetoric on the days leading up to mid-year, gathering in states that won in 2016. In a rally in Missouri on Thursday, Mr Trump said Pittsburgh's suspected slaughtering squad and the man accused of sending bombs to the post of prominent Democratic personalities managed to slow the Republicans' political dynamics before the mid-term elections.

"We had two maniacs to stop a momentum that was incredible, because seven days no one spoke about the elections," he said. "It stopped a tremendous momentum." He added, "The most important thing is that we have to take care of our people and we do not care about momentum when it is a shame just as it did in our country."

"However, it stopped a certain momentum, and now the dynamics is gathering," said Trump.

In addition to his usual claims that Democrats support "open borders," the president has largely focused on his rhetoric about the caravan of immigrants, most of whom seek asylum.

In a Press conference on immigration on Thursday, Mr Trump debated the decision to send 15,000 military troops to the border. He said the army would not tolerate violence at the border, and any rocks thrown into the army would be treated as "a firearm."

When a journalist asked him about it, the president said he had told the US Army. to "consider it a rifle".

"We will consider the maximum we can consider this because they throw stones in a bad and violent way," he said. "You saw that three days ago, really damaging the army, we do not want to put it, if they want to throw rocks in our army, the soldiers repress us, consider them a shotgun." When they throw rocks as they did in the army and its police Mexico, I say, consider yourself a weapon. "

During the fight on Thursday, Mr Trump also criticized the Democrats for immigration, saying they "do their best to delay, stop" the wall. "And we need it more than ever," he added.

Mr Trump also urged his proposal to end the nationality of the championship, which is guaranteed by the 14th amendment of the Constitution. Mr Trump called the nationality of the championship right a "crazy, robbery policy" and pledged to end him, although it is unclear if that is possible.
