President Trump held a Rally in Huntington, W.Va. for Patrick Morrisey, the Republican challenger to Democratic Sen. Joe Manchin. During his speech, Trump bashed the Democrats by saying they would "shut down " coal mines, as well as "take away" "good health care" by using "socialism." Socialism consists of the government controlling the means of production. No mainstream Democrat had called for such a governmental takeover.
