Trump Generally Sticks to Hammering Donnelly at Indiana Rally

"I'm not a supporter (of President Trump)", said Doug Mulvaney, a local attorney.

On Tuesday night, Republican voters in IN overwhelmingly elected Braun to take on Democratic Sen.

He said the relationship between the USA and North Korea was "good" and previewed the planned summit in Singapore between himself and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un.

Trump called his relationship with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un "good", then added, "but you remember everybody in the fake news when they said he's going to get us into a nuclear war". "When the time came to defund Planned Parenthood, Joe voted no".

The rally marks Trump's return to the campaign trail. Joe Donnelly, who faces Republican businessman Mike Braun in one of the most competitive Senate campaigns. He says when Trump asked him to support his tax overhaul or his plan to end the Affordable Care Act, "Joe voted no". Before his 2012 election, the senator represented a House district that included Elkhart.

He also touted how the president's actions helped to create 8,000 new jobs in Elkhart. Obama returned to Elkhart in 2016 to point to economic progress, but Trump carried the county and much of the region overwhelmingly that year.

President Donald Trump and Vice President Mike Pence touched down in IN for a rally less than 24 hours after welcoming home three Americans freed by North Korea.

The Indiana rally is Trump's fourth political-style event in the past two weeks. Trump skipped the White House Correspondents' Dinner late last month to rally supporters in Macomb County, Michigan. And last Saturday, Trump was in OH, long the key electoral piece for any GOP presidential hopeful. Jim Banks, Larry Bucshon and Todd Rokita, who lost the GOP Senate nomination to Braun on Tuesday, joined Pence aboard Air Force Two for the flight to the rally, according to Banks' office.

"To me, it's a protest against fascism and its leading US representative, Trump", said Wolf.

The photo op was at first less than ideal, with Braun appearing to try to get the president's attention for a handshake as the new GOP Senate nominee was speaking, but Braun and Trump eventually got the photo.

"It's okay that the President and Vice President are here today for politics, but problems only get solved when you roll up your sleeves and put in the hard work", Donnelly said in a statement in response to the Trump-Pence rally, calling himself "Indiana's hired help in the Senate".

Obama suffered broad losses in Congress and in statehouses during the 2010 and 2014 midterm elections, an outcome Trump hopes to avoid. "They tell him", Trump said. "But they must not have nuclear weapons, we must be able to go to their site and check that site", he said. "There was tremendous enthusiasm".
