Protesters greet President Trump's Great Falls visit

Sen. Jon Tester speaks at a hearing on Capitol Hill in 2016

President Trump attacked Senator Jon Tester (D-Mont.) during a rally in Great Falls, Montana, in what many saw as revenge for the Democrat's pivotal role in ending the nomination of Ronny Jackson to the Department of Veterans Affairs.

"We need Matt Rosendale in the Senate to continue our fight", he said.

Trump held nothing back.

President Donald Trump, accompanied by first lady Melania Trump, waves as he greets military families during an afternoon picnic on the South Lawn of the White House, Wednesday, July 4, 2018, in Washington. The nonpartisan Cook Political Report says Democrats are "likely" to carry Montana in the Senate race.

It's fascinating to watch the ultra-rich New Yorker work his thing on a vast blue-collar place like Montana, which is larger than two Floridas with five percent of the state's current population. "It was put out by a Republican wasn't it". "I'll see what Trump has to say and how he delivers his magic words". He said he would've gotten a net - and waited it out. He teased the announcement of his Supreme Court pick and a possible slogan for his 2020 campaign.

"Let's say I'm debating Pocahontas, right?"

Doubling down on his goal of ginning up support for Rosendale, the president explained another reason the senator now holding the seat is unsuitable.

Trump has nevertheless targeted Tester, blaming him for the downfall of White House doctor Ronny Jackson, Trump's onetime nominee for VA secretary. "It's time to retire liberal Democrat Jon Tester".

Jackson denied the allegations but ultimately withdrew his nomination.

A related issue is whether Trump can transfer his magnetic popularity and unshakable bond with his base to less charismatic and idiosyncratic GOP candidates.

Trump then moved to a number of worldwide issues, saying he planned to make it clear that certain North Atlantic Treaty Organisation members must "start paying the bills".

"We're taking them out by the thousands". But he decried much of the media's depiction of his successful negotiating strategy as "too nice".

After the speech, Warren, D-Mass., hit back.

Trump seemingly ignored the outreach, telling supporters that he would rather have people who speak ill of him and vote with him than those who speak highly of him and vote against him.

Trump vowed Thursday at a campaign rally in Montana that he'll be prepared for the July 16 summit in Finland. "These are savage gangs", he said of MS-13. "I won Montana by so many points, I don't have to come here".

Democratic Sen. Elizabeth Warren of MA.

Mr. Trump noted that he had been criticized for referring to Warren as Pocahontas, a reference to Warren's claimed Native American ancestry. Elizabeth Warren to take a DNA test to determine whether she has Native American blood, if she becomes the Democratic nominee for president in 2020.

He joked with the audience about not telling anyone his "secret plan" to resolve the matter of the senator's ethnic heritage once and for all.

"Jon Tester showed his true colors with his shameful, dishonest attacks on a great man", Trump told the crowd.

Tester and colleagues like Donnelly and Heitkamp well know the straddle required of Democratic senators in conservative territory, who face the conundrum of voting with the majority opinion in their states or with their national party.

Trump touted recent success on the employment front, including 3.4 million new jobs, rising wages, and record low unemployment claims among African-Americans, Hispanics, and women.
