President Trump making another visit to West Virginia

WHITE SULPHUR SPRINGS, W.Va. (AP) — Tossing his "boring" prepared remarks into the air, President Donald Trump on Thursday unleashed a fierce denunciation of the nation's immigration policies, calling for tougher border security while repeating his unsubstantiated claim that "millions" of people voted illegally in California.

Before moving on to those impacted by tax cuts, the state's political leadership represented on stage took turns praising the president and the tax cuts.

Two of the companies were Elkins-based banks, Citizens Bank of West Virginia and Davis Trust Company. "And he does other things that I don't like". "They always like to say, 'Oh that's a conspiracy theory.' It's not a conspiracy theory". "They don't want to mention that".

"In many places, like California, the same person votes many times", Trump said". "Millions and millions of people". Earlier this year he disbanded a voter fraud commission amid infighting and lawsuits as state officials refused to cooperate.

"This was going to be my remarks".

Morrisey said it was a privilege to work closely with the president and his administration in repealing his predecessor's anti-coal agenda.

It is not clear who the "they" in this statement are. Trump ended his opening comments when he held up some white paper, what his staff had meant to be his opening remarks.

"Thank you for listening to us, thank you for fighting for us, thank you for caring enough", said Jessica Hodge, a business administrator, as she broke into tears.

"Y$3 esterday it came out where this journey coming up, women are raped at levels that nobody has ever seen before", he said.

Bringing up his infamous 2015 campaign announcement speech, when he referred to Mexican immigrants as "rapists", Trump claimed without evidence that migrants who have been traveling through Mexico in a large group this week are responsible for rampant amounts of rape. "I believe it is important for the president to speak directly to West Virginia voters about these tax cuts that let them keep more of their hard earned money".

In closing, Trump thanked Governor Jim Justice and Senator Shelley Moore Capito before directly acknowledging that Congressman Evan Jenkins and state Attorney General Patrick Morrisey - who were flanking the president at the table - are both vying for the Republican nomination to unseat Manchin in November.

A March survey by The Associated Press-NORC Center for Public Affairs Research found that an improving economy and the tax cuts passed by Republicans appear to have helped lift Trump's approval rating to 42 percent - up seven points from February. And, of course, he reminisced about his 2016 electoral victory in the Mountain State.
