During a campaign rally in Michigan on Thursday, President Donald Trump got emotional when the crowd of Trump supporters started chanting “we love you!”
“Thank you. Don’t say that I’ll start to cry and that wouldn’t be good for my image,” the President said. “That wouldn’t be good for my image. You don’t want to see me cry! I’ll start to cry… this happened the other day.”
“It’s incredible, they said, with all the years that they have been covering presidential elections, they have never heard that chant,” he said. “It’s very nice.”
Trump joked that the “fake news” would eventually dig up a video of a president getting a “We love you” chant, just to prove him wrong.
“This is what we are dealing with,” he said.

As campaign season is kicking off, President Trump is making sure to do anything and everything to ensure a 2020 victory.
According to Bloomberg, President Trump is considering investing $100 million of his own money into his 2020 re-election campaign.
The news comes after Axios reported that the Trump Campaign has had a cash issue in recent months.
Check out what the Daily Caller reported:
Trump regularly made checks out to his presidential campaign ahead of the 2016 election, but he has refrained from doing so when running as an incumbent. Trump has reportedly discussed the potential donations with multiple people in the White House, according to Bloomberg.
The report comes as former Vice President Joe Biden’s campaign out-raised Trump heavily in August, receiving $365 million. Biden’s haul set the all-time record for single-month fundraising by a U.S. presidential candidate.
Tim Murtaugh, the Trump campaign’s spokesperson spoke out on the news but would not confirm nor deny the report.
“President Trump’s fundraising is breaking records and we are paying close attention to the budget, allowing us to invest twice as much from now until Election Day than we did in 2016,” Murtaugh said to Bloomberg. “President Trump has also built the world’s greatest digital fundraising operation, a dominant ground game, and a third advantage Joe Biden can never match — enthusiasm.”
On Tuesday morning, President Trump tweeted about the topic as he stated that his campaign was forced to spend a lot of the money to combat “false reporting” on the coronavirus.
“My Campaign spent a lot of money up front in order to compensate for the false reporting and Fake News concerning our handling of the China Virus,” he tweeted. “Now they see the GREAT job we have done, and we have 3 times more than we had 4 years ago – & are up in polls. Lots of $’s & ENERGY!”
