President Trump attended a rally to support Matt Rosendale, a candidate for the Montana Senate. Later in the speech, Trump bashed Democratic candidate, Ben Jealous. He claimed Jealous wanted to give free college to illegal aliens. Jealous wanted free community college for all Maryland residents, including undocumented immigrants brought to the U.S as children, referred to as "dreamers." Trump himself had claimed he wanted to find a way for them to stay. Gov. Hogan, a Republican, said the dreamers should have access to tuition aid at community colleges.
