President Donald Trump campaigned in Mississippi on Monday, sharing a fun fact about his love of Elvis Presley.

After taking the stage in Tupelo, the president commented that he was in the “proud” birth state of Elvis.

“Other than the blonde hair, when I was growing up they said I looked like Elvis, you see that? Can you believe it?” he said. “I always thought that was a great compliment.”

He admitted that people would probably judge him as “conceited” for saying so, but denied that he was telling the story for that reason.

“We love Elvis, don’t we?” Trump asked as the crowd cheered.

The president reminded his supporters that he awarded Elvis the presidential medal of freedom just weeks earlier. During the White House ceremony, the president even played a clip of Elvis’s music.

Trump urged all Mississippi voters to vote for Sen. Cindy Hyde-Smith, pointing to the many Senate victories that Republicans successfully won in the midterm elections.

“Please vote tomorrow,” he said. “You have an election tomorrow … don’t take any chances.”
