Trump attacks familiar enemies, adds new targets

(AP) -

President Donald Trump is attacking familiar enemies and adding fresh targets for his scorn during a campaign-style speech in Michigan.

Trump criticized Democratic Sen. Jon Tester for announcing allegations of unprofessional conduct by Trump's now-withdrawn nominee to Veterans Affairs, White House doctor Ronny Jackson.

The president says he "knows things" about Tester that could lead to the Montana senator losing his bid for re-election, but Trump didn't elaborate.

Trump also pointed to Democratic Sen. Debbie Stabenow as an impediment, telling his audience that Michigan voters are at fault because they keep re-electing her.

Trump appeared in Washington Township, Michigan, on the same night as the annual White House Correspondents' Dinner, telling his audience he'd rather be with them than in Washington, D.C.
