In his opening remarks at the event in White Sulphur Springs, West Virginia, the president briefly touched on taxes and the opioid epidemic, which has ravaged that state. You probably heard about that. "Not a conspiracy theory, folks".
While there have been isolated cases of voter fraud in the USA, past studies have found it to be rare.
Trump repeated his unsubstantiated claims of widespread voter fraud. Earlier this year he disbanded a voter fraud commission amid infighting and lawsuits as state officials refused to cooperate.
At one point, he physically threw away his notes, saying that his prepared remarks "would have been a little boring". "They would have taken about two minutes", Trump said as he tossed his script into the air.
Trump adds that "Border crossings are at a still UNACCEPTABLE 46 year low". He dubbed MS-13 gang members "thugs" and said his administration's crackdown on the group was "like a war". "That will all be determined by the requirements that are given to us", Pentagon spokeswoman Dana White said Thursday. "This is the kind of stuff and crap we are allowing in our country, and we can't do it anymore". The president suggested that there's a rampant level of rape among the Central American migrants, while repeating his controversial line that Mexicans are rapists.
The trip marks Trump's fourth visit to the state as president. Everybody said, 'Oh, he was so tough, ' and I used the word rape.
Trump routinely sends tweets that refer to shows he saw on cable news, usually Fox News Channel but other channels, too, such as CNN. White House spokesman Hogan Gidley said Trump wasn't talking about the caravan but rather about extreme victimization of those making the journey north with smugglers in general.
Trump also defended his proposed tariff plan, which many of his fellow Republicans fear will start a trade war with China.

After Trump's Anti-Immigrant Rhetoric, Mexico Halts Refugee Caravan Fleeing Violence
The Mexican government moved Monday evening to break up a migrant caravan that was moving through southern Mexico. Trump has threatened to end NAFTA negotiations and pull out of the deal over the Mexican government's conduct.
He began the event by criticizing Sen.
Before hearing from West Virginians about their families' savings from a recent tax-reform bill, Trump focused heavily on immigration issues - including his call for National Guard assets to be deployed to the U.S. - Mexico border.
Another Senate candidate, West Virginia Attorney General Patrick Morrisey (R), lauded Trump for several achievements, including "focusing on the opioid epidemic with a laser beam".
It underscored the frustration of many congressional Republicans with the president's frequent indiscipline.
"He votes against everything and he voted against our tax cuts, and that was bad", Trump said, eliciting faint boos from the audience.
"Your senator, he voted against, Joe, he votes against everything, and he voted against our tax cuts", Trump said. "This is the last time you have to file a very big and complex tax form".
Moving back to a more comfortable place, that of an off-the-cuff campaigner, Trump praised West Virginia and touted his campaign's success here.
"This is what the Democrats are doing to you", Trump said after telling an anecdote of a man who he said was dismembered by immigrants while jogging along the Hudson River in NY.
