Speaking at a campaign rally in North Dakota a on Wednesday night, the president revisited previous comments he has made bemoaning the fact that his opponents are often referred to as "the elite".

Mostly, the president and other speakers tried to tie Heitkamp to Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer of New York, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi of California and the newest Republican villain, Rep. Maxine Waters of California.

"My phone call with Gen. Kelly". 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. "How the president talks about Sen".

"I mean, (Waters) practically was telling people the other day to assault".

Trump is scheduled to appear at a rally Wednesday evening in a 6,000-seat Fargo hockey arena in a burst of campaign appearances that has included Nevada, Minnesota and SC.

Ahead of the midterm election, and with Senate control at stake, Republicans are eyeing Heitkamp's seat as a top pickup opportunity. She also voted against some of his Cabinet nominees. In recent weeks, he had frustrated Cramer with the appearance of friendly ties to Heitkamp, particularly after she was seated next to the president during the signing into law of a banking deregulation bill.

"You are the people who farm the prairie, tamed the badlands and squeezed oil out of rock", Trump said, speaking directly to the North Dakota citizens who lived under "big attractive skies". But I'll tell you what: "good woman", Trump said then.

Heitkamp says she also talked about global trade, oil prices and health care-related issues with the president. He also told Trump he would "be with you 100 percent of the time".
