President Donald Trump touted United States economic growth and painted a grim picture on immigration in rallies with Republican candidates ahead of Tuesday's (Nov 6) elections as Democratic former vice-president Joe Biden urged voters to reject division. Joe Donnelly- by tailoring his message to them personally but then tying them to their party leadership.

Casey Talbert, 30, said she voted for Machin when he ran in 2012 but is supporting Morrisey because "we need people who are going to support President Trump's agenda".

Bracamontes' snarling, expletive-filled courtroom rant about killing police officers appeared in a little-noticed January 2018 Trump campaign ad. Bracamontes sports a shaved head and long chin hair in the video.

Mr Obama is set to campaign again Sunday in his adopted hometown of Chicago, as well as in IN, where the seat of Democratic Senator Joe Donnelly is in danger.

Trump has scheduled nine rallies in West Virginia, Indiana, Montana, Florida, Georgia, Tennessee, Ohio and Missouri between Friday and Election Day.

Trump was joined on stage by former Indiana University basketball coach Bobby Knight, who led the crowd in a cheer "Go get'em Donald".

At an airport rally earlier Friday in Huntington, West Virginia, Trump opened the final sprint to the midterms by defending his decision to tweet a video warning of people crossing into the US illegally at the border with Mexico. And Rep. Carlos Curbelo, R-Fla., seeking re-election in a Democratic-leaning South Florida district, said he'd not seen the video but criticized Trump's use of it.

The video, which looks like an ad campaign video, shows twice-deported Mexican immigrant Luis Bracamontes laughing about killing two officers in California, and saying he wished he had killed more.

But even if Republicans are swept out of power in the House, Trump seemed unconcerned about the implications, telling a crowd gathered at an airport hangar here: "I'll just figure it out". "Democrats let him stay". It includes scenes of a migrant caravan moving toward the USA, warning ominously, "Who else would Democrats let in?" and suggesting that more violence would soon penetrate the border.

The lap itself was organized by both Porsche and Manthey-Racing and was set by Lars Kern on October 25. Today, Porsche have confirmed that they were able to achieve a faster time for the Porsche 911 GT2 RS.

Trump's aggressive travel schedule over the next several days is aimed at boosting GOP Senate candidates as the party tries to expand its 51-49 Senate majority, rather than working to defend embattled Republicans in the House, where the party's control appears in doubt. Obama responded by citing anger among Trump supporters despite their candidate's win and asked, "Why are they so mad?" "We don't want to put anti-coal people - they are anti-coal people and they vote anti-coal, and frankly that's what you are getting".

Trump didn't present a complete picture of Manchin's voting record. On major issues, Manchin did join Democrats in voting against tax cuts that Trump signed into law past year, but he broke with his Democratic colleagues and voted for both of Trump's Supreme Court nominees: Neil Gorsuch and Brett Kavanaugh.

Hoping to keep Republican control of the House and Senate, President Trump has used a campaign rally to ramp up his hard-line immigration plans.

Trump also said "nobody was worse to the press than Obama", after Obama spoke in defense of the First Amendment.

"We've created 4.5 million new jobs since the election".

Trump will return to the Hoosier State again on Monday, Nov. 5 in Fort Wayne for another rally.

Trump told The Washington Times in an interview published Friday that he didn't view it as a "Willie Horton ad at all".

The president also railed against Miller's opponent, Richard Ojeda - purposely mispronouncing his name and calling him a "radical liberal".
