President Donald Trump stumped in Great Falls Thursday afternoon hitting on the highlights of his first year and half in office and, once in a while, railing against Montana Democratic Senator Jon Tester.

There were lots of thumbs ups, ‘Make America Great Again’ hats, shirts, and banners. The occasional Q-anon reference, and other signs or gear reading ‘Drain The Swamp’, ‘Trump - Pence’, ‘Women For Trump’ and, in preparation for the run in 2020, ‘Keep America Great.’
