What did President Trump say about the upcoming midterm elections?
On Monday, President Donald Trump spoke at a rally in Ohio about his nomination of Judge Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court. The rally was held in a packed gymnasium at Olentangy Orange High School in Lewis Center, Ohio, and was attended by thousands of Trump supporters.
During his speech, Trump praised Kavanaugh as a “brilliant legal mind” and a “man of great character and integrity.” He also spoke about his commitment to appointing conservative judges to the Supreme Court, who he believes will uphold the Constitution and defend individual rights.
“We need judges who will interpret the Constitution as written,” Trump said. “Not as they want it to be, not as they think it should be, but as it is written.”
Trump also spoke about the importance of the upcoming midterm elections, urging his supporters to get out and vote in November to keep Republicans in power.
“We need to keep the House and the Senate,” Trump said. “We need to keep our majorities because we can’t let the radical Democrats take over.”
The Ohio rally was part of a multi-state tour by Trump to drum up support for Republican candidates in the upcoming elections. The rally was attended by several Republican officials and candidates, including Ohio Governor John Kasich, who has been a vocal critic of Trump in the past.
Kavanaugh’s confirmation hearings are set to begin on September 4th, and Trump has urged Senate Republicans to move quickly to confirm him to the Supreme Court.
“We have to get him through,” Trump said. “We have to get him confirmed, and we will.”
Kavanaugh’s nomination has been met with fierce opposition from Democrats and liberal groups, who have criticized his conservative views and his record on issues such as abortion and corporate power.
Despite the opposition, Trump remains confident that Kavanaugh will be confirmed, and he sees his nomination as a key part of his effort to reshape the judiciary in a more conservative direction.
“We’re going to have a great new Supreme Court justice,” Trump said. “And we’re going to keep America great.”
