President Trump held another ‘Keep America Great’ rally in Las Vegas on Friday. The event came just a day before Democrats are expected to hold their caucus in Nevada.
The president stated he will defeat his Democrat opponents in a “big beautiful landslide” and touted his successes, including a rebuilt military, a booming economy and a plummeting poverty rate.
“They have a big election tomorrow, we’ve already won the state,” he said. “This November, we’re going to defeat the radical socialist Democrats, and we are going to win Nevada in a big beautiful landslide.”

In the past three years, the Trump administration has reportedly created over 125,000 manufacturing and construction jobs in the state. The president won almost every county in 2016, but overall lost the blue state to then-candidate Hillary Clinton.
During the rally, the president also touted the diversity and “boundless optimism” of his party.
“Republicans are fighting for citizens from every background, every community and every walk of life,” stated President Trump. “We are welcoming Americans of all parties and political persuasions to join our incredible movement to make America great again.”

Meanwhile, Republicans are entering peak election season with a major fundraising lead over Democrats. The latest Federal Election Commission filing this week showed the RNC has $76 million cash on hand. This figure is about eight times more than the DNC’s $9.9 million.
Democrat hopeful Mike Bloomberg himself has four times more cash on hand than the committee.
According to RNC Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel, support for President Trump is growing. She has claimed Americans are choosing results over a crowded Democrat field that has no vision for the nation.
“As we saw last night, Democrats are a disaster,” she said on Twitter. “Let’s keep winning with Trump!”
