Trump mocks #MeToo movement in Montana rally

The discomfort of red state Democrats torn between their own political interests and those of the national party has been multiplied by the sudden detonation of a Supreme Court battle in the middle of a midterm election campaign - and Trump is not wasting his golden chance.

President Donald Trump has arrived in Montana to campaign against Democratic U.S. Sen.

Trump's eldest son, Donald Trump Jr., opened the rally to deafening applause and quickly went on the attack against Tester.

"Do we have an incredible president or what?"

US intelligence agencies say Putin meddled in the 2016 election to benefit Trump.

"I promise you I'll do this: I will take, you know, those little kits they sell on television for $2.00" Trump began, despite the fact the ancestry kits don't actually cost $2.00.

Tester earned the president's ire for helping lead the fight against his onetime nominee for Veterans Affairs secretary, Dr. Ronny Jackson.

But overall, organizers say things have gone peacefully here today, and they're relatively happy with how it all went down. I really couldn't hate him more. How vicious is the world, ' Trump lamented. While Tester voted against Trumps Supreme Court nominee Neil Gorsuch and the Republican tax bill, he is considered a more centrist member of the caucus.

But his most extended attack was aimed at Warren, a Democrat he has long targeted for claiming that she is part Native American and derisively nicknamed "Pocahontas", after the 17th century historical figure.

There were some heated words exchanged with Trump supporters, especially as people left the rally but some protesters said they took the opportunity to have civil discussions with people they disagreed with. "Pocahontas, I apologize to you, to you I'll apologize". I apologize. To you, I apologize. "To the fake Pocohantas I won't apologize". I know one thing. "You're going to get on your side a real Montana fighter. We have to do it gently". Elizabeth Warren (D-MA), Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA), the economy, Tester, immigration, tax reform, and Russian relations. In the process, he also mocked the "Me Too" movement, saying that he would be considerate as he pushed her to take it. "Even though it only weighs probably two ounces".

Then he continued on: "And we will say, 'I will give you $1 million to your favorite charity, paid for by Trump, if you take the test and it shows you're an Indian.' And let's see what she does".

During his speech, the president repeatedly called out the "crooked press", pointing at cameras and media assembled in the back of the arena.

Warren shot back at Trump on Twitter on Thursday night by criticizing his administration's "zero tolerance" immigration policy, which has resulted in the separation of thousands of migrant children from their parents. "Maybe you should focus on fixing the lives you're destroying", she tweeted Thursday.

Trump also voiced his support for State Auditor Matt Rosendale, who is challenging Tester in November.

"Jon Tester showed his true colors with his shameful, dishonest attacks on a great man", Trump told the crowd. "We're going to be out there fighting for Montana". He has also dismissed the special counsel's investigation into potential Russian collusion with Trump's campaign as a "witch hunt" meant to delegitimize his presidency.
