The cordoned off area around the Billings Metra created a wide peripheral walkway where hawkers busily transacted wares stamped with the name of America’s biggest celebrity, folk hero and leader of the free world, President Donald J. Trump. A crowd that had been lining up since dawn on Sept. 6, thousands were deftly moved through the line when doors opened earlier than expected; mostly those with the striking, unique faces of our many made in Montana characters, people unaffected by influences of anywhere outside The Big Sky Country.

Trump’s first appearance was a sideline interview with Fox News as a surprised audience jumped to their feet and cheered. Steve Daines opened it up after an invocation, the Pledge of Allegiance and National Anthem. Greg Gianforte was well received and spoke about the privilege of being Montana’s sole voice in the US House, and his pledge to continue to support Montana if reelected. 

Then the decibel level hit the roof as the President entered and strolled the long, raised walkway, waving, smiling; obviously enjoying the ride. He touted Matt Rosendale as our next US Senator from Montana and brought Matt up to speak. Matt received loud applause and spoke convincingly about his support for the President’s agenda, urging the crowd that a vote for him is a vote to continue President Trump’s great work.

The President continued with the administration’s accomplishments: More American’s working today than ever before with the lowest African American unemployment on record, along with Asian, Latino and female Americans; Kim Jong-un is no longer firing rockets over Japan and has returned hostages (without us paying $1.8 billion) while stating he wants to denuclearize during Trump’s tenure; Isis is on the run. We’re rebuilding our military and creating another branch, the Space Force; Coal miners are back to work. In the first 2 months of 2018 Montana’s clean coal production rose 2.5 million tons. 600,000 manufacturing jobs added nationally; Biggest tax cut in the history of our country. 4 million are off food stamps. Economy humming at 4.2% growth; Death Tax eliminated; Getting rid of burdensome regulations has spurred our economy; The appointment of Supreme Court Justice Neil Gorsuch and the pending appointment of judge Brett Kavanaugh, along with many federal judicial appointments, changing the face of our courts from those who create law from their benches (the job of our elected officials) to those who’ll uphold our Constitution; Moving the American embassy to Jerusalem, recognizing Jerusalem as Israel’s capitol; Dealing with the $375-500 billion trade deficit with China, putting America 1st in new trade deals with Mexico and others. 

Trump also illuminated Tester’s voting record: No on tax cuts, Kate’s law, enhanced vetting for refugees. Yes on Obamacare, Sanctuary Cities, and liberal judges 99% of the time while opposing Neil Gorsuch and other Constitutionally-minded judges. 

He closed with saying impeachment proceedings against a President, because of hatred, “is a dangerous game, opening the door for the same in future elections, turning our system into that of a third world country.”
