"We need intellect. We need so many things", Trump said. She has also opposed him at times, including a statement Tuesday warning that the administration's trade tactics could hurt North Dakota manufacturers of agriculture machinery, which she said accounts for 50 percent of the state's exports to the European Union.
Kylie Oversen, the former Democratic-NPL Chair running for tax commissioner, said before the interview she was "definitely curious what the president has to say to North Dakota", adding she didn't believe his policies were in line with the state's agricultural needs.

Trump's visit came just a few months after Vice President Mike Pence stopped here to boost Cramer and criticize Heitkamp's voting record. But, referring to the rally, said, "Maybe because of this she will be forced to vote 'yes'".

Trump said he has to name someone young enough "that's going to be there for 45 years".
All five "swing" senators voted to confirm Trump's first nominee to the court, Neil Gorsuch, last year. CNN's Jeff Zeleny, who called Heitkamp Trump's once "favorite Democrat", approached the senator this week to ask her if she ever considered becoming a Republican. But I'll tell you what: "good woman", Trump said then.
