The president said Saturday that Democrats will "open America's borders" and then "murderous thugs" will "kill us all."

Democrats are pushing for open borders, which means “murderous thugs” will flood the country and “kill us all,” President Donald Trump told a crowd of his supporters in Kentucky Saturday night.

From The Week:

> "The Democrats have become the party of crime; the Republicans are the party of safety," the president claimed, saying Democratic immigration policy would "open America's borders and turn our country into a friendly sanctuary for murderous thugs from other countries who will kill us all."

> McConnell he declared "the greatest leader, in my opinion, in history," praising the Kentucky senator's handling of the contentious confirmation of Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh. "There's nobody tougher, there's nobody smarter," Trump said. "He stared down the angry left-wing mob. ... He's better when I'm president than he ever was when anybody else was president."

According to USA Today, Trump also delivered favorable remarks about Kentucky Senator Rand Paul — who the president once said is "a spoiled brat without a properly functioning brain" and said he "didn't get the right gene” — calling Paul a “good friend” and suggesting the "young and spry" politician join him onstage.
