MANCHESTER, N.H. — President Trump on Monday said he’s hearing that Republicans could cross over and vote in the Democratic presidential primary in New Hampshire for the “weakest” candidate.
“I hear a lot of Republicans tomorrow will vote for the weakest candidate possible of the Democrats – does that make sense? You people wouldn’t do that,” Mr. Trump said as he rallied here before thousands of cheering supporters a day out from the New Hampshire primaries.
He said, though, the issue is that “they’re all weak.”
“We proudly welcome and embrace voters of all parties and political persuasions who want to join our mission, a very simple mission, remember? Make America Great Again,” he said. “You can vote for the weakest candidate, if you want.”
“They don’t know what they’re doing – they can’t even count their votes,” he said, referring to last week’s botched Iowa caucuses.
The president came within a whisker of defeating Hillary Clinton in New
