Trump spoke in support of Republican incumbent Dean Heller, who is fighting against Democrat Jacky Rosen for one of Nevada's United States Senate seats.

Trump deployed a refrain he had fine-tuned during his Western swing, declaring that "Democrats produce mobs, Republicans produce jobs".

The President will hold one of his signature Make America Great Again rallies in Elko, Nevada, where he will possibly speak on a range of topics from a headline-filled week, including the caravan of migrants headed for the Southern border, the Russian national who was charged on Friday with a federal crime for allegedly working to interfere in the 2016 and 2018 elections and the investigation into the killing of Saudi Arabian journalist and Washington Post columnist Jamal Khashoggi.

He tells a Republican rally in Elko, Nevada, that he "likes where we stand in the election" on November 6 that will determine control of Congress.

President Donald Trump is scoffing at the idea of a "blue wave" sweeping Democrats to big victories on Election Day, saying he thinks it's "being rapidly shattered".

U.S. President Donald Trump said the administration was studying a tax cut for middle-income earners that could be rolled out some time around the beginning of November, just before pivotal congressional elections.

Trumps key aides get into heated argument
Trump has lately expressed fury about a large group of migrants who are travelling from Honduras toward the USA border. The argument was over immigration policy, with Bolton wanting a more hard-line approach on illegal border crossings.

Former President Barack Obama, who won Nevada during the 2008 and 2012 presidential elections, will be visiting the battleground state Monday with a get-out-the-vote rally in Las Vegas. In a tweet, the president said Heller had "become a good friend" who was "all about #MAGA". "The Democrats don't care that a flood of illegal immigration will bankrupt our country". Yet Trump tweeted Saturday that "we could write up and agree to new immigration laws in less than one hour" if Democrats "would stop being obstructionists and come together".

According to a report from the Wall Street Journal, the Republican-held governorships in Ohio, Wisconsin, Illinois, Michigan and Iowa are up for grabs, with the Democratic nominee pulling even or ahead in the polls.

In Michigan, Democrat Gretchen Whitmer has a solid lead over Republican state Attorney General Bill Schuette to replace outgoing two-term Gov. Rick Snyder. Last year, Trump threatened Heller's re-election chances when the senator held up GOP efforts to repeal the Obama-era health law.

Biden said in his appearance that "basic American values are under assault" and that the upcoming election was "bigger than politics".

Trump said Heller's challenger Rosen was indebted to the Democratic establishment and opposed the nomination of Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh.
