President Heads to ND for MAGA Rally

"President Trump and I had a solid discussion about the Supreme Court vacancy", Heitkamp said in a statement after the White House meeting.

Trump's rally in North Dakota's largest city-like rallies he's held in other cities-was part rock concert, part theater, part political rally and mostly about Trump.

"Justice Kennedy's retirement makes the issue of Senate control the vital issue of our time", Trump declared.

Heitkamp went on to say it was time for us to "roll up our sleeves" and move on to "more important" issues, like passing the farm bill, finishing the budget and advancing programs for opioid relief.

The president implored the 5,800 supporters at a packed Scheels Arena to vote for Republicans in the midterm elections, including Kevin Cramer, a Republican congressman from North Dakota who is challenging Democratic incumbent Sen.

In his remarks, Trump attacked Democrats, including Rep. Maxine Waters (D-Calif.), who called on activists to publicly confront Trump administration officials to "push back" on them for the president's policies.

President Donald Trump has claimed his supporters should be referred to as the "super elite" after last week claiming he was better than his "elite" opponents because he had more money and a bigger house.

Heitkamp's campaign confirmed to ABC News that the senator will not be in the state during President Trump's rally because the U.S. Senate is now in session.

The president met in person with Senate Judiciary Committee chairman Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa; Susan Collins, R-Maine; Lisa Murkowski, R-Alaska; Heidi Heitkamp, D-N.D.; Joe Manchin, D-W.Va.; and Joe Donnelly, D-Ind.

The president was in full-on campaign mode during the event, begging Democrats to "please please" keep Nancy Pelosi as their leader and constantly invoking Maxine Waters as the new face of the party. He labeled Heitkamp a "liberal" and tried to tie her to Senate Minority Leader Charles E. Schumer and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi.

Those "elites" from either coast have clearly been poll-tested and clearly are not popular in North Dakota, as the boos from the crowd indicated each time their names were mentioned. She won her first term by only about 3,000 votes, and both sides have stockpiled millions for the race.

Cramer thanked Trump "for not forgetting us" and said he'll always be with "them and with you". But Kennedy's decision to retire seemed to give him extra firepower, and he said he wanted to pick a jurist who could spend at least 40 years on the court.

"I was taught that two wrongs don't make a right", she said.

"Heidi voted no on our massive tax cuts for North Dakota families", Trump said to the crowd.
