President Trump compared himself to Elvis Presley in the legendary singer’s hometown of Tupelo, Miss., on Monday evening during a campaign rally.
“We love Elvis. I shouldn’t say this — you’ll say I’m very conceited because I’m not — but other than the blond hair, when I was growing up they said I looked like Elvis,” Trump said.
“Can you believe it?” he continued. “I always considered that a great compliment.”
Trump also referenced Presley when discussing a caravan of migrants traveling through Mexico on their way to seek asylum in the U.S.
“They’re not going to put in Elvis in there,” Trump said during the rally.
Trump visited Mississippi to participate in campaign events for incumbent Republican Sen. Cindy Hyde-Smith, who is facing off against Democratic challenger Mike Espy in a runoff election on Tuesday.
Trump has defended Hyde-Smith as an “excellent senator” as she faces controversy, including pushback to a joke she made about attending a “public hanging.”
