Trump In Pennsylvania: I Need Rick Saccone To Help 'Keep America Great!'

Trump In Pennsylvania: I Need Rick Saccone To Help 'Keep America Great!'

President Donald Trump is diving into a Pennsylvania congressional race on Saturday - a must-win for Republicans as they try to tamp down worries of a Democratic wave in November's midterm elections.

Trump opened his 75-minute whirlwind of a speech by touting his administration's new trade tariffs - 25 per cent on steel imports and 10 per cent on aluminium imports - before wading into the Olympics, previewing his 2020 campaign slogan and again called for enacting the death penalty for drug dealers, reports CNN.

For Saccone, the closing argument is aimed squarely at the district's heavily Republican leanings, framing the race as a way to boost Trump and prevent national Democrats like House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi from gaining traction. "They have insane uncle Joe Biden", Saccone said Wednesday as the former vice president visited the district.

The special election on Tuesday is to replace Republican Rep. Tim Murphy, who resigned a year ago amid revelations of an extramarital affair in which the anti-abortion lawmaker urged his mistress to get an abortion when he thought she was pregnant. Trump said he's accomplished a lot. On Twitter, the group came to the defense of one of its own, Rep. Waters, and demanded an apology from Trump for his "low-I.Q." remark.

"These people are killing our kids and they're killing our families, and we have to do something", he said. "They're all watching", Trump told the crowd in Moon Township.

Lamb, a 33-year-old Marine veteran and former federal prosecutor, thanked labor unions for their support and said it has helped overcome the "dark money" and negative campaign tactics helping Saccone.

Trump spoke for about an hour before introducing Saccone about several topics.

"There's also a segment of undecideds that hopefully they'll remember why they voted for Trump to begin with, and they'll come out and vote for me", Saccone said before talking to natural gas workers in Canonsburg.

He embellished his derisive "Sleepy Eyes Chuck Todd" nickname for the "Meet the Press" host by calling him a "son of a bitch". "Personally, I like Rick Saccone".

Flake, who has hinted he might challenge Trump in 2020, said: "We had a record number of journalists being jailed overseas, some on false news charges, echoing the phrases that he uses".

Trump said Kim had announced his country would not launch any more missiles.

Trump administration officials including White House counselor Kellyanne Conway and Labor Secretary Alexander Acosta have also campaigned for Saccone. Trump said he would impose tariffs on some countries but won't impose tariffs on Mexico or Canada. "I think it's time and I think we've shown great strength".

Ahead of his visit, Trump tweeted on Saturday, "Heading to Moon Township, Pennsylvania, to be with a really good person, State Representative Rick Saccone, who is running for Congress".

Referring to the latest job figures, Trump said the economy is thriving and jobs are coming back. "Yeah, they were hilarious", he said. He said his unprecedented meeting could go two very different ways: "We may leave fast" or strike one of history's greatest deals. "I said, 'Bye, bye".

The president extolled his first term thus far, citing accomplishments such as the new tax law, and said that it would be detrimental to his agenda if Democrats were to win the House in 2018 elections.

While attacking the media for second-guessing his eagerness to meet with Kim, Trump said he will do what he thinks is best.
