President Donald Trump will deliver a campaign rally in Topeka, Kansas on Saturday night.
Trump is in Kansas to support right-wing extremist Kris Kobach, who is running for governor after defeating a more moderate Republican incumbent in a primary. Kobach helped Trump’s investigation into “voter fraud” during the 2016 election.
Trump will not be supporting candidates like Rep. Kevin Yoder, a Republican who represents suburban Johnson County. Yoder is skipping the rally as he faces off with Democrat Sharice Davids.
Watch the rally live below.

US President Donald Trump threatened his French hosts with taxes on their wines Friday as he headed to a G7 summit in France with a series of parting shots, including another broadside at the Federal Reserve's chairman.
After a day that saw big falls on Wall Street after he announced new tariffs against China, Trump was in no doubt that he would emerge victorious from his trade war and appeared in a combative mood all round ahead of the diplomatic gathering.
Trump blew up last year's G7 summit in Quebec, plunging into a bitter row with Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and refusing to sign the group's traditional joint declaration.
Trump heaps praise on Danish PM he called ‘nasty’ over Greenland row
President Donald Trump heaped praise on Denmark's prime minister Friday, two days after he cancelled his state visit to the country and slammed her for dismissing his idea of buying Greenland as absurd.
The US leader said he got a call from Prime Minister Mette Frederiksen, who he had previously called "nasty" when she rejected his idea of buying Greenland in the latest spat involving Trump and a traditional US ally.
But on Friday he appeared to reverse course, calling her "a wonderful woman."
"We had a great conversation," Trump told reporters as he prepared to leave for the G7 summit in France.
Brazil’s Bolsonaro authorizes army to help fight Amazon fires
President Jair Bolsonaro on Friday authorized the deployment of Brazil's armed forces to help combat fires raging in the Amazon rainforest, as a growing global outcry over the blazes sparks protests and threatens a huge trade deal.
Plumes of thick smoke rose into the sky above dense forest in the northwestern state of Rondonia, where bright orange flames from various fires were visible for kilometers (miles), an AFP photographer reported.
"It's not normal and it's like this because of the smoke from the fires," said a hotel employee in the state capital Porto Velho, which was covered by a layer of smoke as fires burned near the city.
