*President Trump’s supporters are now chanting “lock her up” toward Minnesota’s Democratic Rep. Ilhan Omar.
During a rally in Duluth Wednesday, Trump targeted the first term congresswoman and Somali refugee while criticizing Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden’s pledge to significantly increase refugee admissions from numbers Trump has cut it to during his first term, reports TheHIll.com.
“Another massive issue for Minnesota is the election of Joe Biden’s plan to inundate your state with a historic flood of refugees,” Trump said. “Congratulations, Minnesota. Congratulations. No.”
“What is going on with Omar?” he continued, citing unproven claims tying her to a ballot harvesting scheme. “I’ve been reading these reports for two years about how corrupt and crooked she is. Let’s get with it. Let’s get with it.”
The rally crowd then broke into a chant of “lock her up,” which originated during Trump’s run against Hillary Clinton in 2016.
Landlord Threatens to Double Rent If Biden is Elected: ‘If Trump Wins, We All Win’ (Watch)
*The landlord of a trailer park in Colorado got creative with his attempt at voter intimidation by threatening to double the rent collected from his tenants if Democratic nominee Joe Biden wins the presidential election.
The Washington Post reports that the short note was allegedly sent to residents by the owner of a Fort Morgan, Colo., trailer park on Monday, claiming that a Democratic victory would lead to “more in taxes, utilities, gasoline, groceries, new permits, fees and regulations … everything!”
“This also means YOUR RENT will be increased to cover these expenses,” the note continued. “Most likely, rent would DOUBLE in price!”
The stark letter, which residents shared with KUSA, irritated tenants and outraged some Colorado Democrats who on Thursday called the note “fearmongering” and a “scare tactic.” The Colorado secretary of state’s office has forwarded complaints about the letter to the state attorney general, KUSA reported.
“We can’t control how this whole election goes,” Cindy Marquez, one of the trailer park’s residents, told KUSA. “We can’t control what everyone else does, you know, we can’t control the results.”
Colorado state Sen. Julie Gonzales (D) said in a tweet Thursday that several tenants had reached out to her about whether the letter was legal. Although she did not weigh in on the legal question, Gonzales said the letter was unacceptable.

Here’s Jason Whitlock’s Pillow-Soft, A**- Kissing Interview with Trump on Rappers, Black Democrats, Big 10 Football & More
*Former Fox Sports commentator Jason Whitlock, an unapologetic advocate for Donald Trump — interviewed No. 45 at the White House Wednesday for his new gig at Outkick.com, a newly launched website that features Whitlock and Fox Sports radio host Clay Travis and focuses on politics and sports.
On the eve of Trump’s last Presidential debate with Democratic challenger and former vice president Joe Biden, Whitlock asked him if he has any changes in strategy from the previous debate.
“No, but I’ll listen to you,” Trump told Whitlock. “If you have any ideas, I’ll take them.”
“Let Joe Biden talk,” Whitlock told the president. “He’ll do the work for you.”
The 15-minute chat Wednesday also touched on Trump’s disconnect with Black America.
“I know I look incredibly young, but I actually have lived long enough to remember back when rappers loved…Donald Trump before he was president,” Whitlock said. “What changed your relationship with Black celebrities, entertainers?”
Trump reminisced about the 87 rap songs he said he was featured in.
“It was always Trump, Trump, Trump this. My daughter would call me, ‘Dad you’re in another song,'” he told Whitlock.
“Then when I ran for politics, there was like a wall,” Trump said. A wall that shouldn’t be there, the president said.
Trump then regurgitated his usual, “Nobody has done for the Black community what I have done … Prison reform, criminal justice reform.” He went on to say that for 100 years Democrats have had the black vote on lock.
“It’s a habit. It’s almost habit to vote for a Democrat,” Trump said. “Now you have a lot of (Black) people going into the Republican party.”
An hour before the interview aired, Whitlock appeared on Fox News Channel’s “Tucker Carlson Tonight” to promote it and spoke about Trump’s appeal to Black men.
“I think we’ve been carrying on a façade for three and a half years as Black men that somehow we can’t relate to Donald Trump, that we didn’t celebrate him in hip hop music for decades, that he wasn’t friends with countless Black athletes, celebrities, entertainers,” he told Carlson.
“The masculinity of Trump, he represents the patriarchy,” Whitlock said. “He is not politically correct. Those are things, I’m just, I’m sorry, a lot of Black men can relate to. It’s not really surprising to me he’s starting to make head way in that direction.”
They also talked about Antifa being the “modern day KKK,” and Whitlock praised Trump for intervening to get Big Ten college football back.
“The other reason I am here is college football. In 1984, me and my dad were in a 400-square-foot apartment,” Whitlock said. “The only people looking for me were college football coaches. Getting a college football scholarship changed my life. Your help getting Big Ten football back rang true.”
Trump told Whitlock he worked quickly to make it happen.
“When I heard that the Big Ten was out, I said ‘We got to get them open,'” he said. “I worked very hard for a very short period of time, very focused…we got them thinking about it …and we got them to do it.”
By the end of the interview, after Whitlock called Antifa the “modern day KKK,” Trump couldn’t get enough of Whitlock, telling him, “You are so smart and you are so right and Antifa is a disaster. I have a lot of respect for you.”

Obama to Address Black Men Specifically in Tonight’s Drive-In Rally for Biden (Video)
*In Barack Obama’s scheduled drive-in rally tonight in Philadelphia, he’ll talk directly to Black voters — and Black men specifically — in an effort to earn their vote for his former vice president and current Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden.
The POWER Interfaith coalition, a Pennsylvania-based progressive group, conducted a poll this month, reported first by Politico, that found that 72 percent of Philly’s Black male voters under the age of 50 are backing Biden. Comparatively, 91 percent of Black voters above 50 years old in the same survey are supporting the Democratic nominee. Among the younger male voters, 14 percent are casting a ballot for Trump and 9 percent are undecided.
“I think they’re worried,” said Bishop Dwayne Royster, executive director of POWER Interfaith, of Biden’s campaign. “In the city of Philadelphia, the largest segment of the population is African American of any one group. And when African American males don’t show up, that could certainly be a problem.”
Meanwhile Obama released a video Tuesday evening that offered a preview of the rally, telling young people that they can create “a new normal” in American politics by going to vote.
“One of the most inspiring things about this year has been to see so many young Americans fired up, organizing, marching and fighting for change,” Mr. Obama said. “Your generation can be the one that creates a new normal in America. One that’s fairer, where the system treats everybody equally and gives everybody opportunity. We can come out of this moment stronger than before.”

In the final 13 days of the election, Obama is expected to play a big role in Democratic campaigns up and down the ticket: He’s appearing in ads across the country for Democratic Senate candidates, including in Maine, Georgia and South Carolina. He and former first lady Michelle Obama also filmed digital spots for Biden, which appear on their Facebook pages, and he has helped raise enormous sums of money for Biden and Senate contenders.
Biden, who is debating President Trump in Nashville on Thursday, is not attending the Pennsylvania visit with Obama.
