After attacking Democrats like Joe Biden, Corey Booker and Elizabeth Warren, President Trump heaped praise on Republican Rep. Marsha Blackburn in her tight Senate race against Democrat Phil Bredesen, and invited her up to the stage.
Afterwards he hugged her, applauded and said:
“She is all about Tennessee values. She has Tennessee values. A vote for Marsha is a vote for me, and everything we stand for and a vote to make America great again.”
Trump then said a vote for Bredesen is a vote for “Chuck Schumer, Nancy Pelosi and the real leader of the Democrats Maxine Waters. Phil Bredesen wants to raise your taxes. He seems like a nice guy.”
And, “He raised taxes and fees by more than one billion dollars. He opposes the border wall. He supported drivers’ certificates for illegal aliens.”
“If you want to stop Schumer from becoming Majority Leader.. then you cannot vote for Phil Bredesen.”
One thing to note: Phil Bredesen, the Tennessee Democrat running to represent the state in the US Senate, said just last week that he would not vote for Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer if he wins his bid in November.
