1. SOUNDBITE (English) US President Donald Trump:
"Can I be honest? It's crazy what's happening. This whole thing with sanctuary cities. And you go to California which has so many sanctuary cities. They don't know what's happening out there. You have people that want to get rid of those sanctuary cities. They just aren't able to do it with the people that get elected. A lot of illegal voting going on out there by the way. A lot of illegal voting."

3. SOUNDBITE (English) US President Donald Trump:
"It's like, did you ever really sort of feel where you don't even have to treat people nicely. You don't have any choice you have to vote for me. I can leave right now. I can say North Carolina I've had it with you. I'm leaving right now. And you know what you got to go out and vote. What are you going to do. Put one of these crazy people running our country again? But it's never been so far left."

5. SOUNDBITE (English) US President Donald Trump:
"A vote for any Democrat in 2020 and a vote for any Democrat tomorrow in North Carolina is a vote for the rise of radical socialism and the destruction of the American dream."
U.S. President Donald Trump held a rally in Fayetteville, North Carolina on Monday night, to campaign on behalf of Republican Dan Bishop in a closely watched special election that takes place Tuesday. Bishop is running against Democrat Dan McCready for a House seat.
Trump is trying to fire up GOP voters by trashing Democrats. He says a vote for any Democrat in 2020 is "a vote for the rise of radical socialism and the destruction of the American dream."
Trump also emphasized immigration issues. He claimed that McCready supports sanctuary cities, which limit cooperation
with U.S. immigration officials. He criticized California for the presence of sanctuary cities, adding that there is "a lot of illegal voting" in California.
