In the midterm elections this fall, Republican candidate Matt Rosendale hopes to unseat incumbent Democrat Sen.
The President accused the two-term senator of voting down the line with liberals on issues of Obamacare repeal, immigration, abortion, and tax cuts, grouping him with GOP hate figures like Rep. Nancy Pelosi of California, Sen.
"He's going to be your next senator", Trump predicted as he called Rosendale to the podium.
Jon Tester, Trump noted, had leveled "vicious" accusations at Jackson, clearly referring to Tester's April comments that Jackson handed out prescriptions "like candy".
In a freewheeling speech in Montana, Trump cycled through many of his favourite themes but repeatedly returned to vigorous campaign-year attacks on Democrats. We have no national president. Mr. Trump called Jackson a "beautiful person" who did not really want to be VA secretary but accepted the nomination out of a sense of duty.
Tester, the top Democrat on the Senate Veterans' Affairs Committee, led the charge against Jackson, the White House physician who was briefly Trump's pick to lead the embattled agency.
"I'd rather have him say bad about me but vote for me, right?" "I believe him. Jim Jordan is one of the most outstanding people I've met since I've been in Washington".
Montana, a purple state that elects both Republicans and Democrats to statewide offices, strongly supported Trump in the 2016 election, leading both candidates to compete for Trump supporters.
Security for the event has prevented any mad scrambles for the best seats in the house, but the arena is expected to be packed when President Trump arrives. I promise you I'll do this, you know those little kits they sell on television for $2: "'Learn your heritage", Trump bragged to the crowd, saying if Warren brought up her Native American heritage, he would respond by pulling out one of "those little kits". To you, I apologize. To the fake one, I won't. I know one thing. To sweeten the deal, he kidded about giving a million dollars to her favorite charity if the DNA test revealed her heritage to be Native American.

"And you're going to get on your side a real Montana fighter, you see it, you've been watching for the last six months, he's a tough cookie, he's a fighter. We have to do it gently".
He described Rep. Maxine Waters, D-Calif., who has been calling for his impeachment for more than a year, as a "low IQ individual" and pegged her level of intellect as "somewhere in the mid-60s", which is considered the range for a mental disability. "We will take that little kit and. we have to do it gently because we're in the "MeToo" generation so we have to be very gentle".
After the speech, Warren, D-Mass., hit back.
Warren shot back at Trump on Twitter on Thursday night by criticizing his administration's "zero tolerance" immigration policy, which has resulted in the separation of thousands of migrant children from their parents.
"Maybe you should focus on fixing the lives you're destroying", she tweeted.
Trump was in Montana, he unabashedly told the crowd, to settle a political score with Sen. "We go forward to victory".
Trump then shifted to the topic of his Supreme Court nominee. "Trump mocking the #MeToo movement at his Montana rally is disgusting, especially after hiring ex Fox Co-President who covered up sexual assaults". "You wouldn't think it would play very well out here".
Early on in the speech, Trump delivered a sweeping rebuke of Tester, arguing that while the senator tells Montana voters that he stands with the President on certain issues, he doesn't when it matters.
