At the lively campaign event, the audience began to shout "CNN sucks" while Trump stood against the backdrop of an enormous thin blue line flag.

"As long as I am President, I will always stand with the HEROES of Law Enforcement!" he tweeted from The Badger State. "Joe Biden won’t"

The president then discussed MSNBC reporter Ali Velshi, who was hit by rubber bullets during the Black Lives Matter protests in Minneapolis.

"I hate to give him the publicity but who the hell cares, right?" Potus said. "'I'm reporting from Minneapolis, where it's a very peaceful demonstration.'

"You look behind him, right, and the entire city is burning down! It looked like Berlin on it's worst day.

"The entire city and he's talking about a 'peaceful' – and then he got hit on the knee by a canister of tear gas, right? And he went down – he's down!

"And I felt very badly that he went down. He was hit by either pepper spray or a canister of tear gas ... I've never seen anyone go down so fast."

Back in May, Velshi tweeted that he was injured when "State Police supported by National guard fired unprovoked into an entirely peaceful rally."

Speaking on MSNBC on Sunday, Velshis said the president "lie[d] about me at his campaign rallies" and clarified that he was hit by "a rubber battle, not a canister."

Earlier on Saturday, Trump also took aim at his Democratic rival Joe Biden ahead of the election, along with his predecessor Barack Obama.

"We've got the Biden deal, pretty crazy but no administration – listen to that sound, it's coming from so far away," Trump said as attendees began to scream "lock him up."

"This should never happen to another president again – they spied on our campaign," he continued, before mocking Obama for "[coming] on to the scene today."

"[Biden's] at 50 percent," Trump added. "And at 50 percent he wins. You explain: is politics crazy or what?"

As coronavirus cases hit record highs in 12 states, Trump said the virus crisis was "going away, it's rounding the turn."

On Friday, the US reported more than 83,000 new confirmed cases, a significant uptick since the previous high of 77,000 cases in July, per Johns Hopkins University data.

Now, there have been more than 8.4 million cases as the death toll rises to 223,000 people.

Trump then remarked that "doctors get more money and hospitals get more money" during the pandemic.

Meanwhile, the changing weather appeared to be an issue for the president yesterday.

He went from "baking in the sun" in North Carolina rally before the "freezing" event in Wisconsin, where it was just 36 Fahrenheit.

After voting in West Palm Beach, Florida, Trump then traveled to North Carolina, Ohio, Wisconsin, and Maryland before returning to the White House late last night.
