President Donald Trump was in Nevada on Saturday for a rally in support of Sen. Dean Heller ahead of next month’s midterm election. On the same day, in the very same state, former Vice President Joe Biden was addressing a rally for Heller’s opponent, Jacky Rosen. However, there was one humiliating difference between the two events.
At a rally for Sen. Dean Heller on Saturday, President Donald Trump revealed that he is set to deliver the one thing that could seal the deal for Republicans in the midterms: massive tax cuts for the middle class.
“We are looking at putting in a very major tax cut for middle-income people. And if we do that it’ll be sometime just prior, I would say, to November,” the president told reporters. “We are studying very deeply right now round the clock a major tax cut for middle-income people.”
“Kevin Brady is working on it, Paul Ryan is working on it,” said Trump. “I would say sometime around the first of November, maybe a little before then.”
TRUMP: "We are looking at putting in a very major tax cut for middle-income people. And if we do that it'll be sometime just prior to November. We are studying very deeply right now round the clock a major tax cut for middle income people."

We already know that President Trump does not make promises that he cannot keep. Trump has made a reputation for himself by delivering on all of the vows he made to voters on the campaign trail, and he’s less than two years into his term. Indeed, it is safe to say, at this point, that we can take the man at his word.
That having been said, if the president delivers these major tax cuts to the middle class by November as he stated, they will come at perhaps the most opportune time imaginable — just before the midterm elections, solidifying many a win for the Republicans.
But this wasn’t the only win of the weekend. Despite the rural location of Trump’s Nevada rally, tens of thousands of people turned out to hear the president and to cheer on their senator. Trump even said that between six and seven-thousand people couldn’t get into the rally in Elko, as it was already full.
Meanwhile, at the very same time, former Vice President Joe Biden was addressing a rally for Sen. Heller’s opponent, Jacky Rosen. But despite that rally taking place in Las Vegas, no more than a few hundred people turned out to hear Biden extol Rosen’s virtues and attack the Trump administration.
President Donald Trump and former Vice President Joe Biden both campaigned in Nevada on Saturday, but it was clear that Trump bested the former vice president in crowd size. “By the way, Joe Biden is in Las Vegas,” Trump said, during a rally in Elko, Nevada. “Sleepy Joe Biden, we call him ‘One Percent Joe.’”
Trump noted that despite repeatedly running for president, Biden never got more than one percent support in the polls. When Trump asked supporters which nickname they preferred, one woman in the crowd shouted “Creepy Joe!”
“She said ‘Creepy Joe,’” Trump said, pointing her out in the crowd. “No, I would never do that, I would never insult him like that.” The “Creepy Joe Biden” nickname grew among Trump supporters, based off of pictures of the former Vice President’s habitual holding and touching women and girls during political events.
Trump said that Biden only had 193 people at his campaign rally in Las Vegas. “We love Elko, but in all fairness, it’s easier to draw a crowd in Las Vegas,” Trump said. Trump claimed there were 6-7,000 people who couldn’t get into his rally in Elko. He said Republicans were going to win big in the 2018 midterm elections. “The Blue Wave is rapidly being shattered,” Trump said. “Not looking like a blue wave.” [Source: Breitbart]

While the mainstream media will tell you differently, it seems clear which party has more support going into the November midterm elections. The pictures don’t lie, but the liberals sure do.
