Trump stumps in Montana: "It’s time to retire liberal Democrat Jon Tester".

In front of a raucous rally crowd in Great Falls, Montana, Thursday night, President Donald Trump heaved a now routine onslaught of verbal jabs toward a number of his critics, potentially saving his most vicious rebuke for possible future 2020 campaign rival Sen.

The President was here to campaign for Matt Rosendale, the Republican State Auditor who's running to defeat two-term Democratic Senator Jon Tester.

"I'm going to get one of those little kits, and in the middle of the debate when she proclaims that she's of Indian heritage, because her mother says she has high cheekbones", Trump said.

"While you obsess over my genes, your Admin is conducting DNA tests on little kids because you ripped them from their mamas & you are too incompetent to reunite them in time to meet a court order".

Jill and the other reporters set up in the press pen where most got their laptops set up and began live tweeting or sending stories to their newsrooms.

Ultimately, the crowd chanted, "Build the wall", after Trump told the audience his promised wall along the U.S. -Mexico border is now under construction in some areas.

"If you tune in Monday at 9 o'clock [Eastern time], I think you're going to be extremely happy with the selection", he told the Montana crowd.

The US on Wednesday asked all countries to stop oil imports from Iran by November 4 this year, adding that waivers are unlikely. As per economists' forecast, the data is expected to show a draw of -2.4M vs. -5.9M previously.

Trump motioned to news media covering the Great Falls rally and said 75 per cent "of those people are downright dishonest".

He said that if the pair ever clashed in a presidential debate he would give her a DNA test to identify her ancestry. "And the problem when this president is out at an event and he goes off teleprompter - I pray this was not on the teleprompter - when he goes off prompter, he becomes out of touch". "This movement is so powerful, it has brought down some of the most powerful men in the country, and it could still bring down Donald Trump".

Appearing in a state he won by roughly 20 points in 2016, Trump cast Tester as a "liberal Democrat, " railing against his voting record on issues like abortion, immigration and taxes. "They really do. And they don't know who they're playing with, folks", Trump said.

"She of the great tribal heritage".

Trump also used his Montana speech to deride Rep. Maxine Waters, the veteran Democratic lawmaker from California whose call for aggressive protests against Trump administration officials drew the president's ire last month. I tend to take a light-hearted approach to this exercise because Trump's word-salad tendencies when speaking extemporaneously are exacerbated when reading a transcript of his speeches.

He is expected to talk about several issues, including his next Supreme Court Justice nomination to veterans affairs to foreign relations, and possibly today's announcement that Scott Pruitt, the head of the Environmental Protection Agency, resigned today.

US intelligence agencies say Putin meddled in the 2016 election to benefit Trump.

"Getting along with Russian Federation, and getting along with China and getting along with other countries, is a good thing", he added, "not a bad thing".
