Trump hits Manchin over tax bill vote at West Virginia event

07 April 2018

President Donald Trump is making another visit to West Virginia. But for the most part, he chose to air his grievances on a variety of topics and regurgitate a string of false claims. "This was going to be my remarks, it would have about two minutes, but to hell (throws paper) with it".

Here is a summary of the president's other head-spinning remarks.

Along with some of the state's premier politicians, Trump was also joined at the table by representatives of three West Virginia companies and three West Virginia families who received a windfall from the tax cut, according to a press handout from the White House.

Six Republicans are competing in a GOP primary to challenge Manchin, who is running for re-election.

Colorado State University releases forecast for upcoming hurricane season
At this point, "We do not anticipate a significant El Niño event this summer/fall", Colorado State researchers said in a release. But, ready or not, the 2018 Atlantic hurricane season begins on June 1.

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

"In many places, like California, the same person votes many times", Trump said".

But other comments drew more attention, particularly his claims about immigration and alleged voter fraud.

Riffing on this week's announcement that he plans to deploy National Guard troops to the southern border ― a move that was likely inspired in part by a Fox News segment ― Trump made several spurious claims about the US immigration system.

Invoking the lines of his June 2015 campaign kickoff speech, in which he suggested that some Mexican immigrants were rapists, the president mused about the threat of violence among immigrants and appeared to make reference to a caravan of migrants that had been working its way north through Mexico toward the United States. "I used the word 'rape, ' and yesterday it came out where this journey coming up, women are raped at levels nobody has ever seen before. They don't want to see it". "Millions and millions of people". "About nine of your people just came up to me outside, could you talk about 202, and we'll be looking at that as soon as we get back", he said. "They always like to say, 'Oh that's a conspiracy theory.' Not a conspiracy theory folks", Trump said.

"I do not watch much television", Trump told the crowd.

Two Republicans competing in the senate primary - Rep. Evan Jenkins and State Attorney General Patrick Morrisey - attended the event, sitting on either side of the president.
