I won’t reprise that tonight.
But it’s grimly, blindingly obvious to me that someone’s going to get hurt or killed between now and Election Day 2020.
President Trump said he "very quickly" stopped the "send her back" chants during Wednesday's rally.— The Fix (@thefix) July 18, 2019
Trump waited 13 seconds, until the chants stopped, to start speaking again.https://t.co/5kdCzXpg4I pic.twitter.com/msRZQMOqSW
