He was there to show support for the Republican senators during a “Defend the Majority” rally.

“These guys, Kelly and David, are gonna be holding the line,” Trump said. “They’re gonna be holding my father’s accomplishments. They’re gonna be holding the America first agenda.”

The incumbents are hoping to stay in office for another term.
