Trump demonstration in Kentucky for the re-election of the Republican government

WASHINGTON: President of the United States Donald Trump held a rally in Kentucky destined to promote the reelection of the republican governor on the eve of the election of governor of the state.

Addressing thousands of supporters at Rupp Arena in Lexington, the second largest city of Kentucky, Trump on Monday urged local voters to support Bevin's re-election, reports Xinhua news agency.

It's hard on illegal immigration, it's pro-life and 100 percent the Second Amendment, Trump said about Bevin. By the way, you will lose your Second Amendment if you vote in the Democrats.

Bevin, first elected as governor of Kentucky in 2015, faces the Attorney General Andy Beshear, a Democrat and son of the state's former Governor Steve Beshear, in this year's election scheduled on Tuesday.

The current governor has spent months promoting his close ties with the Trump administration, while considering Beshear as a liberal who would stand in the president's agenda.

Beshear, joined by his father, campaigned in Western Kentucky on Monday, encouraging people to get out and vote for him, according to his tweets.

The attorney general, who has tried to make the race about local issues, tweeted on Monday night that local voters are fired up to send Matt Bevin home and build a Kentucky that works for all families.

A survey conducted by Mason-Dixon Polling&Strategy last month found Bevin and Beshear tied, and each won 46 percent of the support of local voters.

Trump won Kentucky, a deep-red state, by some 30 percentage points in the 2016 presidential election.

A group of protesters gathered in a park near Rupp Arena on Monday afternoon, waving anti-Trump and anti-Bevin posters.
