Trump capped off a high-profile day with a campaign-style rally in Kentucky


President Donald Trump capped off an eventful day with a campaign-style rally in Louisville, Kentucky, Monday night.

All eyes were on Capitol Hill Monday as FBI Director James Comey testified before Congress about Russia's alleged attempts to interfere in the 2016 U.S. election. During that hearing, Comey said he has "no information" to support Trump's allegations that former President Obama wiretapped his phones at Trump Tower.

On top of that, Supreme Court nominee Neil Gorsuch's confirmation kicked off. 

Because of this, Trump also had a busy day on Twitter. Trump took to social media to dispute any talk of his campaign having contact with Russia prior to his inauguration.

"James Clapper and others stated that there is no evidence Potus colluded with Russia. This story is FAKE NEWS and everyone knows it!" Trump tweeted. The president also failed to mention Comey's testimony at Monday night's rally.

During his rally, Trump touted the Republicans' plan to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act, also known as ObamaCare. 

"Thursday is our chance to end Obamacare and the Obamacare catastrophe and begin delivering the reforms our people deserve," he said. 

Trump didn't, however, mention that the bill has been criticized by those on both sides of the aisle.

In the past, Kentucky Republican Sen. Rand Paul has been a vocal critic of the bill that's meant to replace the Affordable Care Act. 

"We're happy to have him in Kentucky. He's very popular," Paul told CNN. "I'm with the President on the repeal part. We're still apart somewhat on replacement."
