Trump Rips Dem Joe Manchin: 'You're Not Getting Help'

Trump Rips Dem Joe Manchin: 'You're Not Getting Help' Trump Rips Dem Joe Manchin: 'You're Not Getting Help'

Trump was in White Sulphur Springs, West Virginia, on Thursday for what was promoted as a tax cuts roundtable, however, he literally threw out the script and opted for a more classic Trump off-the-cuff opening statement, which included calling out the state's Democratic senator.

In discussing elections with West Virginia voters, Trump took time to attack one of the top Republican targets this fall: Local incumbent Sen.

U. S. Senator Shelley Moore Capito, U.S. Representative Evan Jenkins, WV Governor Jim Justice, and WV Attorney General Patrick Morrisey are all scheduled to attend the roundtable event.

Donald Trump revisited remarks he made about Mexican "rapists" crossing the US border when he announced his run for president and assailed the nation's immigration laws in a speech on Thursday that was supposed to focus on his tax law.

The Trump administration hasn't determined how many troops it will seek to have deployed to the U.S. -Mexico border.

While he and Manchin are friendly with each other - "he grabs me; I grab him; he says hello; I say hello" - Trump told the friendly crowd that the West Virginia Democrat "votes against everything, and he voted against our tax cuts. and he also voted against medical help and health care and that's bad".

Moving back to a more comfortable place, that of an off-the-cuff campaigner, Trump praised West Virginia and touted his campaign's success here. Everybody said, 'Oh, he was so tough, ' and I used the word rape. But Manchin voted for the bill, which passed the Senate 67 to 31 last month.

Although Trump's administration billed the event as an official visit to tout the benefit of the tax cut package Trump signed into law previous year, Trump literally threw away his single page of prepared remarks and delved into 20 freewheeling minutes, alternating between policy points and political jabs.

Elizabeth Lilly told Trump that their tax savings had now averaged out to some $3,500 and that it has enabled the family to travel across the state in support of their daughter who has joined an archery team.

He repeated his unfounded and unsubstantiated claim that "millions and millions of people" voted illegally in 2016.

. "That's going to help you in so many different ways".

He says, "They always like to say, 'Oh, that's a conspiracy theory.' Not a conspiracy theory, folks".

It wasn't immediately clear what he was talking about, but he appeared to be referring to a so-called caravan of Central American migrants that had been traveling through Mexico toward the US border.

That's according to Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen.

In a Thursday morning tweet, the president credits "the strong immigration laws of Mexico and their willingness to use them".
