say, he stuck to the script. we had a chance to talk to folks in the rally and ask what is most important to them asking about the economy, bread and butter issues in 2020. is what folks who were in the stands said last night. >> like everyone in the rallies, a personal message for ohio. >> high school pep rally. jobs are the most important thing, record unemployment for minorities speaks volumes about it. >> the economy is pretty good. a lot of jobs. very encouraging for americans. >> right now the immigration problem does cost the country a lot of money. >> in addition to not just overall job numbers people talked about ohio, a state donald trump won by 9 points in 2016.

policies emanating from these debates. if you are an outside observer there is no candidate on the democrat side commanding the kind of enthusiasm the president is and certainly his team feels that's a good thing heading into this campaign season. >> expect good news with the jobs report. what about protesters? it seemed to take a long time to get them out of there. the president very patient, walking back and forth across the stage as they took care of that. >> reporter: to be honest it seems it had been a while since that level of protested been seen at trump rallies. in a sense the battle rhythm had to be re-exercised to deal with that in a timely manner but the crowd, there was some tussling but ultimately the crowd was just as aware as the president was when the national media was looking for an incident, looking
for a chance, something to continue the so-called racist narrative was all around there were more careful clubs in the arena last night. heather: the president saying don't want to be controversial. thank you so much, appreciate it, thank you. other stories we are following. navy fighter pilot is that after his jet crashed during a routine training exercise was the navy confirmed the pilot was throwing in f-18 similar to this when you see here, in death valley, california, 7 people on the ground were injured. the area known as a good place to a large military aircraft. the identity of the pilot has not been released but the navy confirms they took off from naval station lee more. the navy's top admiral drops all charges against eddie gallagher, lieutenant jacob was set to sais trials charged with covering up gallagher's war crimes after gallagher, decorated navy seal was acquitted of murdering and

democrat for wanting open borders. listen to this. >> the greatest trail committed by the democrats is their support for open borders. democrat lawmakers care about illegal aliens more than they care about their own constituents. they put foreign citizens before american citizens. we are not going to do that. heather: how did that play? >> a huge divide. republicans give this a plus, independents a b-in democrats after. we couldn't be further apart as parties. republicans are all about border security, democrats are afraid of it and we are not speaking to each other. they think that is fascinating is when you look at the debate on borders it was joe biden. he wanted stronger borders. by and large that is what people want. >> he was completely different from the other folks on stage with him.
