President Trump heads to Tennessee with eye on midterms

President Donald Trump lambasted "Chuck and Nancy" and told supporters in Tennessee at a rally on Tuesday that Democratic Senate candidate Phil Bredesen would do the bidding of Democratic congressional leaders.

"In the end, Mexico is going to pay for the wall, I'm just telling you that", he said, pointing to negotiations to change the North American Free Trade Agreement.

Trump offered an early endorsement of Blackburn in April, tweeting that she is "a wonderful woman who has always been there when we have needed her".

President Trump slammed Democratic leaders at a Tennessee rally Tuesday night, labeling former Gov. Phil Bredesen, a Democrat in the running to replace retiring Sen.

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

President Donald Trump made his third trip to Nashville since entering office. The two continued to trade insults previous year, with Trump giving the senator the nickname "Liddle Bob Corker" and insisting he wouldn't even be able to get elected "dog catcher" if he tried running for re-election. The Tennessee campaign is among several races crucial to Trump's plans to maintain control of the Senate, where Republicans are defending a narrow two-seat majority.

On his prized southern USA border wall - which he's struggled to get congressional funding for - Trump promised the crowd that "in the end Mexico's gonna pay for the wall", implying it would be done via renegotiating the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA).

He said national security "is a great issue" for Republicans in the mid-term elections.

Trump said one of those surrogates who appeared with Clinton on the campaign trail was rapper Shawn "Jay-Z" Carter. "To keep on winning, you have to vote Republican in November". Corker also greeted Trump at the Nashville airport Tuesday, joined by Blackburn and Sen.

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

"Tennessee needs a senator who is going to support President Donald Trump and I am going to be there to stand with President Donald Trump to take your Tennessee values to Washington, D.C.", Blackburn pledged. "They do nothing for us".
