Trump thanks supporters while traveling to Louisville rally

President Trump thanked supporters ahead of a rally scheduled for Monday night in Louisville, Ky., where he was to appear alongside Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.)

Trump was resuming his campaign-style events at the start of a consequential week for his young presidency. Confirmation hearings for his nominee for the Supreme Court, Judge Neil Gorsuch, opened Monday before the Senate Judiciary Committee. The House was expected to vote Thursday on the GOP-backed healthcare bill.

Trump's Louisville rally, his third since his inauguration, followed a daylong congressional hearing in which FBI Director James B. Comey acknowledged for the first time that the agency was investigating whether Trump's campaign colluded with Russian officials seeking to influence the 2016 campaign.

The president later shared a highlight reel of the event.
