Though boisterous and bellicose, Trump steered clear of the trouble he stirred up the night before when he blasted one of Ohio's favorite sons, LeBron James on Twitter, questioning James' intelligence. First lady Melania Trump, in a statement, distanced herself from the broadside, which resembled a racial dog whistle, and praised James' efforts. "But in the general election, Democrats all hate Trump and among Independents he's mostly upside-down", Murphy said on NBC's "Meet the Press".
"What happens is they get lost in our country and in some cases, these are not people that you want in the country", Trump said of so-called "catch-and-release" practices by which suspected illegal aliens are often allowed to remain in the United States while their cases wind through the woefully overburdened immigration courts. "And I became president and they didn't".
