Hours after Brett Kavanaugh was sworn in as a Supreme Court justice on Saturday, President Donald Trump described Democrats to a campaign rally crowd in Kansas as a “radical, angry mob”, as he encouraged them to vote in the November midterm elections.
> "I stand before you today on the heels of a tremendous victory for our nation, our people and our beloved Constitution," Trump said, emphasizing the importance of electing Republicans to Congress in four weeks, given potential future openings on the Supreme Court.
> "It could be three, it could even be four, it could be a lot," he said. "And if you allow the wrong people to get into office, things could change ... You don't hand matches to an arsonist, and you don't give power to an angry left-wing mob."
Trump was in Kansas to lend support for gubernatorial candidate Kris Kobach, who assisted with Trump’s transition, advising the president to curb illegal immigration and develop a Muslim registry.
Kobach’s claim to fame was his insistence that the country’s elections are rife with voter fraud — an assertion with zero support.
