ManchinDems face hard choices on resources in battle for Senate House members demand Senate confirm Jim Bridenstine as NASA chief The Hill's 12:30 Report MORE (D-W.Va.) on Thursday, after cultivating a working relationship with the red-state Democrat past year.
President Donald Trump is seething over immigration policies at a tax event in West Virginia.
Finishing his opening remarks, Trump noted that he had gone off script.
"The lawlessness that continues at our southern border is fundamentally incompatible with the safety, security, and sovereignty of the American people", Trump wrote Wednesday in a memo authorizing the move, adding that his administration had "no choice but to act". Trump's trip to the West Virginia town was meant to promote the law in a state where his party believes it can win the Senate seat of Democrat Joe Manchin.
This was President Trumps's fourth visit to West Virginia. But he says that "yesterday it came out" that during "this journey coming up, women are raped at levels that nobody has ever seen before".
Speaking at a tax event Thursday, Trump referenced the fact that Manchin did not vote for his tax plan. "Good luck", said Trump before asking the audience to cheer for Jenkins or Morrisey in a demonstration of how the crowd planned to vote in the upcoming GOP senate primary. Sue Cline, the sate senator from the 9th District, said she was grateful for the opportunity to celebrate the success of West Virginians.
Among those who joined him in White Sulphur Springs were business owners, Virginia-based families and elected officials. "Millions and millions of people". "They always like to say that's a conspiracy theory".
"You're going to have a chance to get a senator that's going to vote for our program", he said.
"You've made a huge difference", said Terry Dotson, a president, chairman and CEO of Worldwide Equipment who took part in Thursday's roundtable.
Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen said she had been working with governors of the southwest border states to develop agreements on where and how many Guardsmen will be deployed.
In a tweet, the president credits "the strong immigration laws of Mexico and their willingness to use them". He said other countries have much tougher immigration laws than the US, and that even those who are caught illegally crossing the border receive easygoing treatment under current law, which he wants to change.
