President Trump arrives in Fargo to cheers

Posted June 30, 2018

Heidi Heitkamp in November, claiming that she promised to be an independent mind but instead has voted in lockstep with her party leadership and against his agenda.

Rep. Kevin Cramer, R-ND, speaks at the 2018 North Dakota Republican Party Convention in Grand Forks, N.D., April 7, 2018.

"Instead she went to Washington and immediately joined Chuck - you know who Chuck is - and Nancy", he told a crowd of almost 6,000 at a Fargo hockey arena.

But on Wednesday, the president accused Heitkamp of voting lockstep with Senate Democratic Leader Chuck Schumer. "Please, please, please don't remove Nancy Pelosi". Heitkamp showed off some moderate chops and sided with the White House on then-Supreme Court Justice nominee Neil Gorsuch. She's largely backed the oil-rich state's corporate interests on energy and has opposed some restrictions on guns.

'Maxine, she's is a beauty, I mean she was practically telling people the other day to assault.

Heitkamp told the AP she's curious how Trump will portray her record, which she says has favored many issues the president cares about, like environmental and banking regulations. When Trump traveled to North Dakota last fall to promote the tax bill, she traveled with him on Air Force One and joined him on stage, where he called her "a good woman". That's what you need.

Ahead of Wednesday night's rally in North Dakota, Trump tweeted that Cramer "is an extraordinary Congressman who will hopefully soon represent this great state as your Senator".

President Donald Trump said his supporters should be called the "super elite".

All of this is true, which is why Cramer began to smell a rat this month when Trump kept playing nice with Heitkamp.

Trump urged the election of more Republican senators, saying the current 51-49 GOP majority is a "problem".

"You know", Trump said, "so many elements go into the making of a great justice of the Supreme Court".

"It's a very tough situation", he said.

Trump said that, with Crowley's loss, he hopes Pelosi (D-Calif.) and Rep. Maxine Waters (D-Calif.) remain as party leaders.

"They say Trump is starting a trade war", he said. "Heitkamp, really, that's something the swamp monsters are more concerned about than I am". It's evident Trump and the GOP see the path to victory in the midterms as focusing on immigration.

"As I said, if the president wants to meet with me, I'm ready to participate and advocate for North Dakota".

On Wednesday, Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy announced he is retiring - allowing Trump to appoint his second justice.

Trump said he has to name someone young enough "that's going to be there for 45 years. Heidi will vote no to any pick we make".

Rep. Waters, a California Democrat who has always been a far-left voice in the party, has gained new notoriety with her recent calls for citizens to confront Trump administration officials in restaurants, gas stations or any public place.
