President Donald Trump on Tuesday evening offered a preview of his midterm election messaging, labeling Democratic candidates “all Pelosi Democrats.”

The Republican president’s signal that he will try to tie Democratic incumbents and congressional candidates to House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi came during a National Republican Congressional Committee fundraising dinner.

“Many of [them] have not held office before, which means it will be easier for them to conceal their true beliefs,” the president said of first-time Democratic hopefuls. “Democrats like to campaign as moderates, but they always govern like radicals.”

“They have gone so far left, we have to go a little further right,” Trump said, before adding, “We’re doing very, very well.”

Trump said he intends to be very active this year campaigning for GOP House and Senate candidates.

He remains popular with the party’s base despite his chaotic White House, allegations of affairs with adult film actresses, the Russia election meddling investigation, and his bombastic tweets and rhetoric.
