7 key quotes from Trump's rally in Indiana

President Donald Trump speaks during a rally in Elkhart, Indiana on May 10, 2018.

President Trump held a rally tonight in Elkhart, Indiana, following a busy week at the White House.

Almost immediately after taking the stage inside a packed middle school gymnasium, Trump hailed his recent foreign policy accomplishments, including securing the release of three American prisoners from North Korea.

If you missed it, here are Trump's key quotes:

  • On the US-North Korea summit: "Something very good is going to happen." 
  • On getting along with Kim Jong Un: "The relationship is good."
  • On the US' standing in the world: "America is being respected again."
  • On protecting the Second Amendment: "Never believe that your Second Amendment is not under siege."
  • On what gets you into a nuclear war: "You remember everybody in the fake news, when they were saying he's going to get us into a nuclear war? And you know what gets you into nuclear wars, and you know what gets you into other wars? Weakness."
  • On voting in the Indiana midterm election: "Now if Joe Donnelly, Sleepin' Joe, and the Democrats get back into power, remember what I said, they will raise your taxes. ... They will destroy your jobs, and they are going to knock the hell out of your borders."
  • On his plans for health care: "Wait till you see the plans we have coming out literally over the next four weeks. We have great health care plans coming out."

Trump is hoping to project party unity tonight

From CNN's Kevin Liptak

President Trump hopes to project party unity and forward momentum during a political rally in Indiana on tonight after a bitter GOP primary battle in the state earlier this week.

Trump is certain to hail this week's foreign policy accomplishments, including announcing the US withdrawal from Iran nuclear deal and the successful return of US prisoners from North Korea.

He's also expected to hail economic improvements in the country -- a potent topic in Elkhart, which then-President Barack Obama visited in 2009 only days into his term. Obama returned to the town, a hub of recreational vehicle manufacturing, in 2016.

Trump is expected to assume a larger role on the campaign trail in coming months as Republicans work to retain control of the House and Senate.
