Trump campaigns for candidate in Indiana, cites employment, migration
US President Donald Trump continued his closing midterm campaign tour in Indiana, a state he easily won two years ago, as he launched a feverish push to help elect Republicans in next week's voting. Trump came to Indiana to campaign for Republican Senate candidate Mike Braun, a former state representative and businessman who is putting up a stiff challenge to Democratic incumbent Joe Donnelly. Trump opened a rally at an Indianapolis high school by highlighting the news from earlier Friday that the economy had added another 250,000 jobs in October. He also talked about the low unemployment rate. Trump's efforts got a boost Friday night from a Hall of Fame basketball coach. The president was joined at a rally in Indianapolis by Bob Knight, who coached the Indiana Hoosiers for three decades. Knight appeared briefly on stage, leading the crowd in a chant of, "Go get 'em, Donald!" Trump has scheduled nine rallies in West Virginia, Indiana, Montana, Florida, Georgia, Tennessee, Ohio and Missouri between Friday and Election Day.
