Trump in Green Bay:

"And there’s no place I’d rather be right now than in America’s heartland."
Trump says his heart is with the victims in Poway. He praises law enforcement, particularly the off duty Border Patrol agent.
“We will get to the bottom of it. We’re going to get to the bottom of a lot of things happening in our country.”
“Name any country, and we lost. We’re not losing anymore."
"By the way -- Saturday night, is there any place that’s more fun than a Trump rally?"

Trump is speaking at the same time as the White House correspondents dinner.
He's going after "Sleepy Joe" Biden and Elizabeth Warren, whom he calls Pocahontas. He says he has "more Indian blood" than Warren.
Trump says he heard there was going to be a big snow storm in Green Bay but there isn't.

"The people that get it wrong the most are the weather forecaster and the political analysts."
It's snowing in southern Wisconsin, but Green Bay is getting better weather.
"Democrats have never been angry than they are today."
And now we have the "Lock her up" chants.

"Did you ever see so many cameras? If somebody else was here, you’d have like, none."
"We should have had health care, but one man decided to vote against it at the last minute ... even though he campaigned on it for eight years."

That appears to be a reference to the late John McCain.

Trump on @RonJohnsonWI: "a very tough guy ... I call him Wisconsin tough."
Trump gives a shoutout to @GrothmanforWI but mispronounces his name.
Last time Trump was in Wisconsin, he mispronounced @Tony4WI's name.

(But lots of people do that, including, at least once, one of @GovEvers' cabinet secretaries.)
Trump praises @jimsteineke.

(who, once again, has been one of the Wisconsin Republicans who has at times criticized Trump).
Trump praised a litany of people tonight, including much of the GOP congressional delegation and state Senate President Roger Roth. But he didn't mention @ScottWalker, the former governor who is at the event.
Trump: "Fake news. Fake. They are fakers."

And the chant begins: "CNN sucks! CNN sucks!"

Trump: "You know what sucks? I'll tell you what sucks. Their ratings suck."
"The great Paris accord," Trump says, mockingly. "How is Paris doing lately?"

"I ended that one too. I thought I was going to take a lot of heat on that one. Saved a lot of money. Saved a lot of jobs. ... It was ripoff. It didn’t allow us to use our wealth."
Trump says he is making trade with India better to help @harleydavidson.

In the past, he has openly criticized the Milwaukee-based motorcycle company.
And now Trump is giving his shoutout to @ScottWalker.

"Scott Walker is here." Big cheers for the former governor.

"Great governor. He did a great job."
Trump is criticizing @GovEvers for saying he would veto an abortion bill Republican lawmakers are considering.
More on that bill here, c/o @MollyBeck: jsonline.com/story/news/pol…
Here's more on what Trump said earlier on Wisconsin paper products, Harley-Davidson and tariffs:

“America will not be taken advantage of any longer. ,,,"
"... For years we gave foreign nations free and unfettered access to our economy while they constructed massive barriers to American exports. ... "
"... As one example, we charge other countries zero tariffs on foreign paper products but when Wisconsin paper companies exported abroad, they sent their product abroad, China charged them big tariffs. India charged us big tariffs. Vietnam charged us massive tariffs. Unfair...."
"Look at Harley-Davidson. I met with them three years ago, one of my first meetings ... and I said to them, the people were very nice, they were telling me, 'Tough to do business (overseas).' How are you doing in India?’ They said, ‘Oh, we don’t do any business (there).’..."
"... They weren’t even complaining because for so many years -- so India charged 100% tariffs on a Harley-Davidson. But when they send their motorcycles, because they make them, to us, we charge them nothing. So I called up Prime Minister (Narendra) Modi I said, ‘Unfair.’ ..."
"... (Modi) cut it 50%, but I said, ‘That’s not good enough because look, 50% to nothing.’ And what we’re doing is changing all of that stuff.”
Trump wraps up his speech, after talking to supporters for about an hour and 25 minutes.

And with that, as always, he starts blaring the Stones' "You Can't Always Get What You Want."
