The Trump Rally in Virginia Was a Rare White House Friday

Mondays was an unusually bright day at the Trump rally, even if less star-studded than usual.

The president who is usually the master of ceremonies pushed back against the “buzz” and getting pulled up onto the stage. In an off-the-cuff ad lib, he also pushed back against White House domestic policy director Rob Porter, who accused him of cruelty, saying that he was still standing up.

“I’m still standing up for everything I believe in. Don’t worry,” Mr. Trump said.

Although the president’s efforts to travel to areas devastated by wildfires have been cancelled because of poor weather conditions, he still managed to keep the crowd entertained.

“At least the firemen are happy. I never thought I’d say that,” he said.

Before sending the final plea to donate to victims of the fires, Mr. Trump also touched on a few federal priorities.

“We need better drugs in our country,” he said. “We need our vets treated like rock stars.”

Mr. Trump emphasized that patients are starting to sue opioid manufacturers as a result of stricter state and federal laws to stem abuse of the medications.

“A lot of people in my administration are starting to sue these companies,” he said. “They know who the bad guys are. They know exactly who the bad guys are.”
