Trump Visits Key Battleground State; Calls Out ANTIFA As A Domestic Terrorist Organization

President Trump returned to the campaign trail on the night after the first debate with Joe Biden and paid a visit to the battleground state of Minnesota.
The president spoke to an enthusiastic crowd in Duluth, the state's fourth-largest city, and one where residents are becoming concerned that the lawlessness and socialism of Minneapolis could spread if Biden wins the election.
In addition to hammering lunchbucket Joe for "shipping your jobs and dreams abroad and for bowing to the violent mob at home," Trump countered Biden's running cover for Antifa, the highly-organized and violent movement that serves as the paramilitary arm of the Democrat party.
Trump called out Antifa as a domestic terrorist organization; a fact that Biden refused to acknowledge when he called the agents of destruction an "idea" and not an organization during Tuesday's debate.
Per the POTUS:
"Biden says Antifa is just an idea. Ideas don’t assault cops & burn down buildings. Antifa is a domestic terrorist organization."
Trump also mocked the former vice president as a weakling and lambasted his allies for demanding that future debates be canceled:
“Joe Biden is too weak to lead this country. You know Biden lost badly when his supporters are saying he should cancel the rest of the debates,”
A day after fighting for attention in a nearly audience-free debate, President Donald Trump on Wednesday returned to his safe space: an adoring crowd of hundreds who were happy to declare him the winner.
Trump visited Minnesota less than 24 hours after the first debate for a fundraiser outside of Minneapolis, followed by a campaign rally in Duluth at an airport hangar. Unlike the previous night, when he was criticized for refusing to condemn white supremacists and for deploying his pugnacious style on the debate stage, Wednesday marked a return to his rallies, where he receives little pushback and tons of applause and feeds off the energy of his base.
He kicked off the event here by bragging about what he called high TV ratings for the debate, glossing over any criticism or negative headlines about the lack of substantial discussion.
“Last night I did what the corrupt media has refused to do,” Trump said. “I held Joe Biden accountable for his 47 years of lies, 47 years of betrayal and 47 years of failure. I held Joe accountable for shipping your jobs and dreams abroad and for bowing to the violent mob at home.”
“Joe Biden is too weak to lead this country,” he added.
President Trump continues to focus on the themes of law and order as a contrast to Biden and the Democrats' refusal to denounce Antifa and Marxist-inspired Black Lives Matter rioters, the economy, and Biden's complicity in offshoring millions of jobs and the preservation of our nation's history.
He also continues to point out to Minnesotans that their fate could be like residents in Ilhan Omar's district, a great midwestern city that has been overrun with refugees and is rife with violence and corruption, including election fraud on Omar's behalf.
