President Trump heads to Tennessee with eye on midterms

Today in Trump’s America Trump hits the campaign trail to try to save a vulnerable GOP Senate seat

President Trump campaigned in Tennessee on Tuesday night for Republican Senate candidate Marsha Blackburn, blasting her Democratic opponent as a "tool" of congressional Democratic leaders and a supporter of Hillary Clinton's presidential bid.

Mexico has said it would not pay for a border wall.

Blackburn, a Republican congresswoman, is vying for her party's nomination to replace retiring Corker, a Republican.

"Yes, we do", Rep. Blackburn told News late last week.

The president's main goal with the Nashville event was to campaign for GOP Rep. Marsha Blackburn, who finds herself in a close Senate contest with former Democratic Gov. Phil Bredesen that could be pivotal in deciding control of the Senate.

Trump's visit will also set off a scramble for Tennessee's Republican candidates for governor to get face time and presidential shoutouts.

Corker, who has publicly criticized the President, announced a year ago he would not seek re-election.

Corker's sometimes tense relationship with President Trump will also be on display during this trip.

Mr. Trump is expected to continue to campaign around the country to help elect or reelect Republicans, as Republicans hope to increase, or at least hold, their majority in the Senate.

U.S. President Donald Trump on Tuesday accused Mexico of doing "nothing" to stop illegal immigrants crossing into the United States, and repeated his election campaign pledge that Mexico would pay for his planned border wall.

Earlier Tuesday, Trump raised the prospect of special counsel Robert Mueller's Russian Federation probe affecting the November elections and blamed Democrats for "Collusion". Trump says he was referring to MS-13 gang members when he used the term. "Sincerely, Mexico (all of us)".

Tuesday's rally at the same place drew a promise from Blackburn.

Corker has called Bredesen a friend and said he won't actively campaign against him.

Blackburn thanked Trump for his endorsement and said that "he's had an wonderful 18 months" in part because he has "repeal [ed] a record number of regulations". "They do nothing for us".
