Trump mocks #MeToo movement in Montana rally

Trumps eldest son, Donald Trump Jr., received deafening applause as he opened his fathers rally, quickly going on the attack against Tester and welcoming Montana Republicans Sen.

He again referred to Sen.

Mr. Trump noted that he had been criticized for referring to Warren as Pocahontas, a reference to Warren's claimed Native American ancestry.

While repeatedly slamming key Democrats, Trump ridiculed claims by Sen.

Trump also pledged he would give $1 million to a charity of Warren's choice if she took a DNA test.

Trump's obsession with Elizabeth Warren's heritage is long-running. He served many years admirably.

Tester took out full-page ads in more than a dozen newspapers across the state Thursday to thank Trump for signing 16 bills the Democrat sponsored or co-sponsored.

No top Democrats in the U.S. House or Senate have called for such a move, though Democratic senators considered possible 2020 challengers to Trump, such as Kirsten Gillibrand and Kamala Harris, have floated the idea of scrapping the agency.

Warren said Trump's administration was using DNA tests on children at the U.S. -Mexico border "because you ripped them from their mamas & you are too incompetent to reunite them in time to meet a court order".

Trump leaned heavily into the immigration issue as he rallied supporters Thursday in Montana.

"It's not a bad thing", Trump said ahead of his meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin in Helsinki, Finland later this month.

'I hope we can get the #MeToo generation to get Trump out of office - and not very gently, ' one user tweeted.

The president says, "I've been preparing for this stuff my whole life". He adds that journalists questioning his readiness "don't say that".

"Putin's fine", Trump said per the New York Times. "I believe him. Jim Jordan is one of the most outstanding people I've met since I've been in Washington". The president blasted the incumbent Democrat for voting against tax cuts and torpedoing his nominee to run the Department of Veterans Affairs. Facing a huge backlash, Jackson ultimately withdrew from the process.

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

Ultimately, the crowd chanted, "Build the wall", after Trump told the audience his promised wall along the U.S. -Mexico border is now under construction in some areas.

Tester was pivotal in the failed nomination of Ronny Jackson by the president to head the Department of Veterans Affairs.

The National Republican Senatorial Committee in a statement called Tester's ads a "pitiful" effort to paint himself as a Trump ally before the rally.

Trump singled out Tester in April, saying the farmer "will have a big price to pay" for releasing allegations against Jackson that included on-the-job drunkenness, overprescribing medication and fostering a hostile work environment.

"But John Tester said things about him that were terrible and that were not true".

Tester planned to spend Thursday listening to farmers' and business owners' concerns about Trump's import tariffs and was expected to be driving back to his farm when the president spoke, spokeswoman Marnee Banks said.

President Trump has praised Vladimir Putin during a free wheeling rally in Montana at which he vowed to make North Atlantic Treaty Organisation allies pay more for defence, made a series of personal attacks against USA opponents and appeared to mock the #MeToo women's movement.

Air Force One touched down in Great Falls at 3:33 p.m. on Thursday.

The presidential visit was meant to boost the candidacy of Montana's Republican state auditor, Matt Rosendale, who is challenging Sen.
