Trump Addresses Crowd in Wisconsin as Part of ‘Thank You’ Tour


"So when I started 18 months ago, I told my first crowd in Wisconsin that we're going to come back here someday and we are going to say ‘Merry Christmas' again," President-elect Donald Trump told a crowd in West Allis, Wisconsin on Tuesday night.

Trump has been going to several states he won in the 2016 election to thank the residents for voting for him. Trump's victory in Wisconsin last month surprised many as it was considered a safely Democratic state. Wisconsin's incumbent Republican senator, Ron Johnson, won reelection as well.

The president-elect also compared House Speaker Paul Ryan (R., Wis.) to a fine wine at the rally Tuesday night.

"And you know, honestly, he's like a fine wine: Every day [that] goes by I get to appreciate his genius more and more," Trump said.

Trump pledged to work on Obamacare, tax reform, and building a border wall with Ryan, to the crowd's applause.

Trump also paused the rally when a woman in the crowd had some form of a medical incident. He repeatedly called for a doctor to attend to her.

A vote recount in Wisconsin that was requested and paid for by Green Party candidate Jill Stein was completed on Monday. Trump added 131 net votes to his lead with the recount.
