President Trump: “Something Big Is Happening”
- Big Blue Wave’r Debunked
Monday, US President Donald Trump hailed the size of his political rallies, saying they are “far bigger” than ever before ahead of the midterm elections in November.
“The crowds at my Rallies are far bigger than they have ever been before, including the 2016 election,” President Trump Tweeted early Monday morning.
“Never an empty seat in these large venues, many thousands of people watching screens outside. Enthusiasm & Spirit is through the roof. SOMETHING BIG IS HAPPENING – WATCH!”
President Trump has repeatedly pushed back against the idea that a “blue wave” will usher Democrats into office in the midterms, arguing that he sees signs of a “red wave,” instead.

Also Monday, President Donald Trump said he will not donate money on behalf of Senator Elizabeth Warren, (D-Mass) until he “personally” handles a DNA test that would prove she is part-Native American.
In response to whether he would pay her the money Senator Warren claims he owes her or the charity of her choice, President Trump said she would 1st have to win the 2020 Democratic nomination for President.
“You mean if she gets the nomination in the debate where I was going to have her tested?” President Trump said in Georgia when asked about the story.
“I’ll only do it if I can test her personally, OK? That will not be something I enjoy doing, either.”
Warren had a DNA test done to show whether she really has Native American heritage, a claim she’s made for years. Trump and others on the right have ridiculed her for it because they felt she was lying.
Warren’s DNA test results showed that there’s a slight chance between 1/64th and 1/1,024th that she is actually Native American.
“Using a DNA test to lay claim to any connection to the Cherokee Nation or any tribal nation, even vaguely, is inappropriate and wrong,” Cherokee Nation Secretary of State Chuck Hoskin said
“It makes a mockery out of DNA tests and its legitimate uses while also dishonoring legitimate tribal governments and their citizens, whose ancestors are well documented and whose heritage is proven. Senator Warren is undermining tribal interests with her continued claims of tribal heritage.”
