Trump is working really hard to win the state of Minnesota in 2020.
He held an outdoor campaign event there on Friday night which drew a massive crowd.
Trump used the opportunity to go after Joe Biden and the Democrats.
FOX News has details:
President Trump told a crowd of supporters in Bemidji, Minnesota that Joe Biden “will turn Minnesota into a refugee camp.”
The president hit refugees, in particular Somali nationals, who committed crimes in the U.S. There are 43,000 Somalis living in Minnesota.
“Biden has promised a 700 percent increase in the importation of refugees from the most dangerous places in the world,” Trump remarked. “Biden will overwhelm your children’s schools, overcrowd their classrooms, and inundate your hospitals in the middle of a global pandemic. Biden has even pledged to terminate our travel ban on jihadist regions – opening the floodgates to radical Islamic terrorism.”
“My Administration is keeping terrorists, extremists and criminals OUT of our country. Just today, we deported dozens of Somali nationals charged or convicted for grave crimes – including rape, assault, robbery, terrorism charges, and MURDER,” he continued.
Trump also described his opponent Joe Biden as “wholly-owned and controlled by the left-wing mob,” noting that he’d opposed sending in the National Guard.
