Montana teen removed from Trump's rally goes viral as #PlaidShirtGuy

Kevin Lamarque  ReutersPresident Donald Trump greets the crowd as he arrives for his

The president addressed reporters in the midst of a two-day campaign swing through states where Republicans hope to expand their narrow 51-49 majority in the Senate by knocking off vulnerable Democrats from Montana and North Dakota. "'Impeach Trump!". 'But he hasn't done anything wrong.' 'Doesn't matter, we will impeach him!'"

Trump noted that Tester voted against last year's tax cuts, voted for Obamacare, and in 2016 opposed Kate's Law, which would have increased criminal penalties on illegal immigrants who return to the United States after deportation. He engaged in a mock conversation, playing both the role of supporter and defender, during one portion of the rally. "And to have lies told about him - I would never repeat them". On Friday, he attends fundraisers in Fargo, North Dakota, and Sioux Falls, South Dakota. He has emphasized his independence and willingness to cross the aisle to work with Trump, who carried Montana by 20 percentage points two years ago.

Montana has long voted Republican in presidential elections, but Trump proved even more popular than other recent Republican presidential nominees.

Tester unveiled a television ad Wednesday promoting his collaboration with Trump as he seeks to inoculate himself against conservative critics.

And the NFL regular season is set to begin this weekend, with players' protests during the National Anthem expected to continue and Nike launching an advertising campaign featuring a favorite Trump target, former NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick.

Mentioning Democrats President Trump said "the market would crash" and "everybody would be very poor" if Democrats were to take back control of Congress and impeach him.

"But let's say a Democrat gets elected, and let's say we have a Republican House".

Some Democratic lawmakers have avoided speaking publicly about impeachment of late ahead of what is expected to be a closely watched election.

"You look at this awful thing that happened today-is it subversion, is it treason?" It doesn't matter. We will impeach him.

"Before the rally, they told us you have to be enthusiastic, you have to be clapping, you have to be cheering for Donald Trump and I wasn't doing that because I wasn't enthusiastic and I wasn't happy with what he was saying", Tyler said, adding event organizers even tried to get his group to wear the classic, red MAGA baseball caps.

Trump also lit into Tester for his role in torpedoing Trump's nomination of Ronny Jackson to lead the Department of Veterans Affairs.

The president noted that Jackson had been his personal physician and had pronounced the commander-in-chief in great health.

Superville reported from Washington.
