Trump was in New Hampshire on Thursday night for another capacity crowd at a massive rally.
Trump lost New Hampshire by a tiny margin in 2016 and is clearly making a play to flip the Granite State in 2020.
Trump hit Democrats on the left pretty hard.
FOX News reports:
Trump tells NH rallygoers ‘we have a bunch of socialists or communists to beat’ — as Dem rivals gather nearby
A fiery stage was set hours before Thursday’s rally, when the president told reporters at a New Jersey airport that Reps. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., and Rashida Tlaib, D-Mich., were “very anti-Jewish and anti-Israel” — and said he supported Israel’s decision to bar them from entering the country.
“Now we have a bunch of socialists or communists to beat,” Trump said, as the Manchester crowd jeered. “They’re not far away. Does anybody want to pay a 95-percent tax?”
Trump went on to say that recent episodes in which people threw water on New York City police officers were indicative of a larger trend among progressives.
“They view everybody as fascists and Nazis … They accuse our heroic border agents of running concentration camps,” Trump said, in an apparent reference to New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. “And, they look down upon the hardworking citizens who truly make our country run.”
Look at the crowd waiting to get in:
