"During a campaign rally in Nashville for Republican Congresswoman Marsha Blackburn - running for Bob Corker's seat - he told the crowd they need to turn out for the midterms or risk the safety of the nation", Ruhle noted. Ms. Blackburn has tethered herself tightly to Mr. Trump in her bid, a vital race for Republicans working to hold off Democratic attempts to seize the majority.

"I've never heard of this guy (Bredesen), who is he?"

"We did it and we did the right thing", said Trump.

Trump won Tennessee decidedly in 2016 and remains popular there.

Blackburn has always been a vocal Trump backer, and in brief remarks to the crowd she promised she'd be a stalwart ally for the president if elected. "To keep on winning, you have to vote Republican in November".

Trump also took aim at Nancy Pelosi, who criticized the president's use of the phrase "animals" while discussing immigrants, labeling the House Democratic leader as an "MS-13 lover". When Trump introduced Corker at the rally, he was met with audible boos from the audience.

Tuesday's rally at the same place drew a promise from Blackburn.

For Trump, the trip to Tennessee comes as part of a ramped-up midterm travel schedule.

"President Trump used the word animals, I'm going to use the word liar", Ruhle said.

Trump on Tuesday criticised Mexico for not helping to stop the flow of illegal immigrants into the United States.

He blamed the Mexican government for a recent caravan of Central American migrants who arrived at the United States border seeking asylum.

Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto, however, had a very different response later via Twitter.

"They make all of this money, and they do absolutely nothing to stop people from going through Mexico, from Honduras and all these other countries. Sincerely, Mexico (all of us)", Pena Nieto wrote in English.

"We have people coming into the country, or trying to come in - and we're stopping a lot of them - but we're taking people out of the country".
