The Post said the president has told advisers he wants to campaign for Republicans six days a week up to election day next month — and sees the big rallies as a testing ground for his own 2020 reelection effort.

Advisers also told Trump he would be wasting his time campaigning for Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Tex.) because Cruz is going to win, the paper reported.
