Sen. Thom Tillis, R-N.C., joined the president on stage in Charlotte. “Ladies and gentlemen, you have got a stark choice and it starts tomorrow.,” Tillis told the crowd. “We’re both on the ballot. You need to vote for us so we can go back and do it again.” Trump’s words offered a boost for Tillis, whose seat is a major target for Democrats. “Thom has really been incredible. He’s been working every day,” Trump said. “And he really wants to fight the radical left and he does it. And he knows how to fight and take care of our amazing veterans and stop illegal immigration.”

Before Trump entered the arena to deafening cheers and the tune of Lee Greenwood’s “God Bless the USA,” U.S. Sen. Thom Tillis came out to warm up the crowd. He spoke of Trump’s accomplishments, particularly “funding the military at historic levels and taking care of veterans.” Tillis also expressed gratitude for Trump’s support of a bill he introduced in Congress that would allow victims of crimes committed by illegal immigrants released by “sanctuary cities” to sue those cities. Later in the evening, Tillis praised Trump’s efforts to stop socialism. “The president went to the State of the Union and he said America will never be a socialist country. That’s another promise he’s going to keep!”

During the rally, Trump predicted Sen. Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts, who he referred to as “Pocahontas,” would lose her home state to Sanders on Super Tuesday. He also threw his support behind Sen. Tom Tillis, R-N.C., for another six-year term. According to Trump, Tillis introduced a bill that would allow the families of those killed by illegal immigrants to sue sanctuary cities and states for failing to honor ICE detainer requests.

The president campaigned for Republican Sen. Thom Tillis, who came up on stage and urged the crowd to reelect Mr. Trump. Mr. Tillis warned that Democrats and their plans for free college tuition and free health care would bankrupt the country. Referring to the president, Mr. Tillis said, “You got to get this man reelected so we can give you the free stuff that a free country deserves: free markets, free trade, freedom of religion, freedom of speech and the freedom for you to protect yourself with your right to bear arms.”
