Donald Trump and Joe Biden exchange blows in Nevada as midterms loom

Trump wants to push middle-income tax cut through Congress President Trump, Vice President Mike Pence visit Elko to support Republican political candidates

Rep. Jacky Rosen, the Democratic Senate candidate in Nevada, voted in favor of extending the individual tax cuts permanently even though she opposed the initial tax bill.

"They've gone loco", Trump said.

Trump deployed a refrain he had fine-tuned during his Western swing, declaring that "Democrats produce mobs, Republicans produce jobs". He's a former Trump critic who has become an ally of the president and rallied with him in the northern, rural Nevada city of Elko Saturday.

He tells a Republican rally in Elko, Nevada, that he "likes where we stand in the election" on November 6 that will determine control of Congress.

Biden, whose appearance ended shortly before Trump's began, said the United States was founded "on an idea, the American idea, basic fundamental decency, and it's being shredded".

U.S. President Donald Trump said the administration was studying a tax cut for middle-income earners that could be rolled out some time around the beginning of November, just before pivotal congressional elections.

On Monday, the President will head to Texas to campaign for Republican Sen.

Trump, trying to hold onto Republicans' narrow 51-49 advantage in the Senate, said a vote for Sinema "is dangerous" because it would empower Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi.

White House says ‘saddened’ to hear Jamal Khashoggi’s death
Lindsey Graham, a close Trump ally, tweeted, "To say that I am skeptical of the new Saudi narrative about Mr. Khashoggi is an understatement". "This is far from the end and we need to keep up the worldwide pressure".

The president wants to focus on immigration as one of the defining election issues. "You know, all of the hackers, and all of the - everybody that you see, nothing to do with my campaign", he said.

He won Nevada in his 2008 and 2012 campaigns, and Democrat Hillary Clinton carried the state by 2 percentage points over Trump in 2016.

Though Biden said earlier in the week that he hoped Democrats, if they take back the House, do not start impeachment proceedings against Trump before Special Counsel Robert Mueller has released his report, many Democrats are holding out hope that some Republicans will join their impeachment crusade if Democrats have a big enough House majority.

The President's Nevada stop comes fewer than 24 hours after his Arizona rally, where he also spoke at length about Democrats and immigration.

Trump praised Heller for his votes for conservative Supreme Court Justices Neil Gorsuch and Brett Kavanaugh. Last year, Trump threatened Heller's re-election chances when the senator held up GOP efforts to repeal the Obama-era health law.

"Call me", he told the Democratic leaders in Congress, Sen.

Heller and Rosen held their first and only debate of the campaign on Friday.

President Trump has been traveling across the country the past several weeks, to rally up support for Republican candidates in multiple states.
