Trump on encouraging voting in 2018: ‘I don’t know who the hell wrote that line’

As President Trump campaigns for Republican candidates this year, he just can’t help but tout one contender who won’t appear on any ballots in November: himself.

“So, your vote in 2018 is every bit as important as your vote in 2016,” Trump said in a speech at a Tuesday night gala for the Susan B. Anthony List, which works to elect anti-abortion candidates. “Although I’m not sure I really believe that, but you know.”

“I don’t know who the hell wrote that line,” the president added, prompting laughter in the audience.

“But it’s still important, remember. That’s why we will be campaigning for every last vote in every part of our great country,” he said.

A recent rally Trump held in Indiana offered a snapshot of what role he is looking to play this year. He has cast the election as a referendum on his presidency.
