While Donald Trump’s campaign rally in Raleigh, North Carolina on Friday was not entirely without incident, it also included a meeting between the real estate mogul and two of his more ardent supporters, the “Stump for Trump Girls.”
Footage posted online shows the Republican front-runner telling Lynette Hardaway and Rochelle Richardson, “Do a little routine” after introducing them — though not by name — to the audience as an “online sensation,” the same description used by the Rush Limbaugh Show earlier this year.
The candidate then stands off to the side while Hardaway takes him up on his offer, telling the crowd, “He’s gonna put that wall up. He’s gonna build that wall. And he’s gonna build it tall. And it’s gonna protect us all.”
Hardaway and Richardson garnered national attention after appearing on CNN this past August to explain why they started endorsing Trump’s candidacy. At the time, they argued that undocumented immigrants were behind mass shootings inside movie theaters within the US, despite the fact that many suspects in those types of incidents have been white males.
While the two hosts were invited onto the stage with Trump, the rally itself saw several unscheduled interruptions. WTVD-TV reported that protesters yelling, “Black lives matter” were ejected from the event, while CNN noted that Trump was heckled 10 times during his speech.

Lincoln Project releases harrowing new video of the future if Trump wins re-election
The Lincoln Project, the group of former top GOP strategists seeking to beat President Donald Trump in the 2020 election, released another new video on Monday evening.
Unlike other videos, the latest release did not feature Trump saying crazy things. Instead, it is more like a 60-second short film.
It features a mother listening to election night returns. She goes into her son's bedroom and lovingly awakens him.
"Hey honey, you asked me to wake you and tell you what happened in the election," she says.
"Who won?" the child asked.
"Trump," she replied. "Trump won."
‘It’s like Kindergarten’: CNN’s Anderson Cooper tears into Trump’s juvenile attacks on Kamala Harris’ name
On CNN Monday, anchor Anderson Cooper played clips of President Donald Trump making fun of Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) and deliberately mispronouncing her name.
"By the way, you know who's further left than Bernie is Kamala," said Trump in the clip. "She's the most liberal senator in America. Kamala. Kamala. Senator Kamala Harris is a sponsor of the Green New Deal, Biden's running mate, Kamala Harris. You pronounce her name wrong, she will go crazy. Kamala, like a comma. You like Kamala?"
"Obviously, not something he's done once or twice," said Cooper. "It's like Kindergarten, remember? When everyone used to make fun of people's names. It happens again and again and again, much like how, to this day, he still emphasizes President Obama's middle name, Hussein."
Trump has become ‘The Incredible Shrinking President’ as Americans tune him out: Pennsylvania AG
On Monday, Pennsylvania's Democratic Attorney General, Josh Shapiro, hit back at President Donald Trump's threats that he would be "watching" the state for signs of voter fraud.
"What's your response to the president, who made those allegations without any evidence at all in your state?" asked anchor Wolf Blitzer.
"He says he's watching, about the only thing I have seen here in Pennsylvania is that Donald Trump has gone 0-5 in court challenges against us here," said Shapiro. "Court challenges where he has alleged widespread voter fraud, and yet never was able to back it up with a shred of evidence. That's why courts have dismissed these baseless lawsuits that he's filed. Apparently, now that he's lost in court time and time again, he's gone into the public square to spin a tale and tell these lies and attack our governor."
