Trump Rallies Supporters in Montana, Calls Barbed Wire on Border Beautiful

At a campaign rally in Montana Saturday, President Trump touched on many of the pressing issues going on in the country including illegal immigration and who he thinks Montanans should be voting for. 

Trump urged voters to get rid of incumbent Democratic Sen. Jon Tester and referenced the Democrat's support for the caravans of Central American migrants making their way to the southern border. 

“The Democrats want to invite caravan after caravan of illegal aliens to flood into your communities," Trump said. 

Trump also went on to call the new addition of barbed wire put up on the border "beautiful." 

“We have our military on the border. And I noticed all that beautiful barbed wire going up today, barbed wire used properly can be a beautiful sight,” he said.

ABC News spoke to many of the supporters at the rally and found that illegal immigration was the top issue in their minds for this election cycle.

“Immigration’s left our country unsafe. It’s taken jobs away from workers," Todd Green, a Bozeman resident, said. "I have no problem with legal immigration. Bring in legally as many workers as we need. But as far as people breaking the law, who come here, it’s not right."

Trump also called the people in the caravans "bad hombres" as he reffered to a statement from the Department of Homeland Security stating that over 270 of the thousands of individuals in the various caravans have criminal histories, including gang membership and crimes involving robbery and sexual assault.

“These are bad people — as I say bad hombres," Trump said. "There are some bad hombres in that group. So they came out with a list of 300 really bad ones, really bad ones. They’re in there.”

He also warned of additional caravans forming in Central America.
