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"
"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!Trump tweeted from Wisconsin last night, saying Biden didn't support the police He spoke against the backdrop of an enormous 'Defend The [Police] Force' flagCredit: AFP or licensors The crowd also chanted 'lock him up' about Joe Biden and Barak ObamaCredit: AFP or licensors
"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."
"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."After the crowd slammed CNN, Trump referenced an MSNBC reporter getting hit by a rubber bullet in May Trump criticized Obama for campaigning for Biden Credit: Reuters Trump reiterated that Democrats 'spied on our campaign'Credit: AP:Associated Press
"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.Trump insisted Covid-19 was 'going away, it's rounding the turn'Credit: AP:Associated Press Braving the cold with little social distancing, supporters listen to Trump speak during a campaign rally at Waukesha County Airport Credit: AFP or licensors
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.
During his event in Lumberton, NC, Trump bashed his former rival Hillary Clinton for describing his base as "deplorables."
“The racist, sexist, homophobic, xenophobic, Islamaphobic—you name it. And unfortunately there are people like that," she said. "And he has lifted them up.”Trump laid into Hillary Clinton's 2016 comments at a rally on SaturdayCredit: Reuters He criticized Clinton – pictured at the Veterans of Foreign Wars Convention in NC – for saying half his fans were in 'the basket of deplorables' Credit: Reuters Clinton said Trump lifted up 'racist, sexist, homophobic, xenophobic, Islamaphobic' people at an NYC event in 2016Credit: Getty - Contributor Candidates Hillary Clinton And Donald Trump Hold Second Presidential Debate At Washington UniversityCredit: Getty - Pool
