After yet another busy news week, President Trump hosted a campaign rally in Pennsylvania on Saturday night for a Republican congressional candidate but spent much of his time talking about his steel tariffs, his political prospects and his new North Korea diplomacy.
"The president's support is key to attaining victory", Saccone told rally attendees about 45 minutes before Trump took the stage.
President Donald Trump on Saturday unveiled his 2020 campaign slogan - "Keep America Great!" - and he called on Pennsylvania voters to elect Republican state Rep. Rick Saccone to Congress because "we have to defeat Nancy Pelosi" and the Democrats.
In the 2016 presidential race, Trump beat Hillary Clinton in the district by 19 points, according to local news reports, though Republican Murphy had never faced a serious challenge from the Democrats in eight elections.
He also made sure the workers in this industrial-heavy region see the new steel tariffs as "my baby", even as Lamb and Saccone have endorsed the move. Elizabeth Warren - who he again called "Pocahontas" - while predicting that media would become bored covering their anticipated 2020 campaigns.
"I would love to run against Oprah. That would be a painful experience for her".
"We can't say Make America Great Again because I already did that".
The Pennsylvania special election is to replace Republican Rep. Tim Murphy, who resigned past year 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.
"Our new slogan, when we start running, in - can you believe it, two years from now - is going to be, Keep America Great, exclamation point", Trump said.
"You think her life is so easy folks?"
The Republicans won Pennsylvania in the presidential election. They are also confident about winning House and Senate majorities after the national elections in November. I don't think we should play games!' he said.
This is Trump's first campaign rally in more than three months, breaking his pattern of gathering with his strongest supporters as often as twice in a month. He predicted a "big & happy crowd (why not, some of the best economic numbers ever)".
The event was held at Atlantic Aviation in Moon Township.
Trump said he thinks the North wants to have peace. "Time and place to be determined".
"President Moon of South Korea said without Donald Trump the Olympics would have been a total failure". "The promise is they wouldn't be shooting off missiles in the meantime, and they're looking to de-nuke", he said. "And if you didn't before, you do now", Jaros told him. And if Pelosi were in charge of the House, Trump said, Lamb would simply "vote the party line".
"Who knows what's going to happen?"
Trump also mocked global criticism of the steel and aluminum tariffs he ordered this past week. He discussed the tax cuts bill he signed, recent job growth and his order to implement tariffs on steel and aluminum for most USA trading partners.
"Some countries have a very tough penalty, the ultimate penalty, and they have much less of a drug problem than we do", Trump said during an appearance at a White House summit on opioids last week.
Referring to the latest job figures, Trump said the economy is thriving and jobs are coming back. "Steel is back. And aluminum is back", he proclaimed.
