President in Big Sky Country: Dems would ‘invite caravan after caravan of illegal aliens’

President Donald Trump ramped up his pre-midterm rhetoric at a rally Saturday in Big Sky Country, claiming that if Democrats do poorly in Tuesday’s elections, they will simply “blame Russia.”
His final-days campaign swing also has featured provocative comments about immigration, the economy and Democrats — and a litany of false statements. In October alone, the Washington Post's Fact Checker staff found he said over 1,000 false or misleading statements; CNN calculated he uttered 81 false statements at a rally this week alone. It’s all part of his strategy to rev up his conservative base to drive up Republican vote counts in key districts and states.
