Prior to the MAGA rallies President Trump took to Twitter where he expressed his unhappiness with a 60 minutes story, told Mexico to move flag waving migrants, “many of whom are stone cold criminals,” back to their own countries. He went on to tweet about the “Mueller” report, and wondered if Mueller would include “hundreds of people closely involved with my campaign who never met, saw, or spoke to Russia,” he added they have also not been interviewed by Mueller.
He continued to tweet marking the ten-year anniversary of the Mumbai attack that left 166 people dead, “including 6 Americans”, before he suggested that it was time for America to have State Run Media. He ended his pre-rally tweeting with endorsing Brad Raffensperger for Secretary of State of Georgia.
Prior to departing the White House for Mississippi, President Trump spoke with reporters, in this clip via NBC News, he is “told” his policy and Obama’s were not the same, he replied, “I tried to do it differently, but Obama had a separation policy.”

TRUMP: “They’re not — as you know, they’re not — they had to be used, b/c they were being rushed by some very tough people & they used tear gas. And here’s bottom line. Nobody’s coming into our country unless they come in legally” pic.twitter.com/lzHdwL7w6F
Twitter responded to President Trump’s State Run Media suggestion:
Good idea. Practically all we see while travelling is CNN.— ron allan (@misterron1) November 26, 2018
In the same Q&A with reporters President Trump was asked about Russia and the Ukraine Kerch Strait conflict, which as the News Blender reported led to Russia capturing three Ukrainian vessels as well as Russia detaining 24 sailors. He replied, “We don’t like what’s happening either way. We don’t like what’s happening.”
He ended the questions expressing his unhappiness with GM’s decision to close four U.S. production plants, saying, “I’m not happy with what she did,” he added that “the U.S. saved GM and for her to take that company out of Ohio is not good.”
Trump ends Q-&-A w/journos by ranting about GM: “I’m not happy with what she did. You know, the US saved GM & for her to take that company out of Ohio is not good. I think she’s going to put something back in soon. That car is not selling, it’s the Cruz, Chevy Cruz. Not selling.” pic.twitter.com/ByuKNcni16— Aaron Rupar (@atrupar) November 26, 2018
