On Wednesday night, President Donald Trump was met with thunderous applause at a North Dakota rally where he threatened supporters with anarchy if they didn’t vote Republican in the upcoming elections.

The president was met with open arms in a state where he had previously won the presidential election by a whopping 36 points. This is the fourth state he has visited in his ongoing campaign to endorse Republican candidates in the upcoming state primaries in order to maintain GOP control over Congress. In the case of North Dakota, Trump endorsed Republican candidate Kevin Cramer who is up against Democratic incumbent Sen. Heidi Heitkamp.

The president also extravagant claims during his appeals for constituents to vote Republican.

We find the news you need to know, so you don't have to.

“Democrats want judges who will rewrite the Constitution anyway they want to do it and take away your second amendment, erase your borders, throw open the jail house doors, and destroy your freedoms.” shouted Trump. “We must elect more Republicans.”

Riding on a wave of cheers, the President triumphantly referred to his supporters as the “super elite” that he would protect from the alleged chaos that would ensue in the hands of Democratic control.


“Radical Democrat protesters, they really want anarchy,” he said. “But the only response they will find from our government is very strong law and order.”

The President also relished in his newfound opportunity to nominate a new Supreme Court Justice, claiming that Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy purposely chose to retire during Trump’s term “because he felt confident in [Trump] to make the right choice and carry on his great legacy.”

The president even claimed his presidency is the real cause behind a recent decline in NFL ratings, noting that no one has the time to watch NFL “because everybody is watching us on the different cable networks.”

“Frankly, they find this more exciting than the NFL,” Trump said of his ratings. “And a hell of a lot more dangerous.”
