President Trump spoke of praise for Reeves, citing how much Mississippi’s current Governor Phil Bryant liked Reeves. He also indicated the following regarding Reeves via Twitter:
“He loves our Military and supports our Vets! Democrat Jim Hood will never give us his vote, is anti-Trump and pro-Crooked Hillary. Get out and VOTE for Tate Reeves on November 5. He has my complete and total endorsement.”
“Thank Mr. President. Mississippi welcomes you. Mississippi is Donald J. Trump Country. We gave you almost 60 percent of the vote in 2016 and next year we are going to do even better,” Reeves said via his Twitter page.
According to the Clarion-Ledger, Reeves only spoke for approximately 3 minutes.
“Are we gonna stand with President Trump?” Reeves asked the crowd who roared. He later asked them ”Let’s stand up to keep America great… I need your prayers. I need your support, and most importantly. I need your vote.”
President Trump spoke for an hour and a half. “America is winning again. While we’re creating jobs and killing terrorists, the Democratic party has gone completely insane,” said President Trump. He spoke about the great state of the economy, and informed the crowd, “The stock-market today hit another all-time high.”
A group known as the “Oath Keepers” were present to keep the peace, and escort people back to their vehicles safely after the rally ended.
