Pa.-18 Election Tuesday Sends Poor Signals for GOP '18, '20

Pa.-18 Election Tuesday Sends Poor Signals for GOP '18, '20

Hours before Saturday's rally, the president said on Twitter that Saccone is "a really good person". He said countries like Singapore have fewer issues with drug addiction because of how much more harshly they punish their dealers. But at the same time, public health officials - including those in the Trump administration - and many in law enforcement are emphasizing treatment rather than punitive measures for low-level users and those addicted to drugs.

Just last week, Donald Trump promised "strong" policies to get on top of the opioid crisis.

Now, in addition to parlaying his decades-long experience in government as a key to success, Saccone is hitching his wagon to Trump's.

While aides pondered details of the meeting - and say it may not happen unless Kim takes affirmative steps - Trump expressed confidence in tweets as well as at the Pennsylvania rally.

"A lot of steel mills are now opening up because of what I did", the President told the crowd in this conservative district.

Mnuchin also argued the press should pay less attention to Trump's rally speeches and more attention to his policies, such as his announcement on tariffs last week.

Trump is urging attendees to head to the polls on Tuesday and jokes that if they agree, everyone can go home. Trump praised Saccone saying "he knows things other people don't know" and bashed the Democratic candidate as "Lamb the Sham".

"And you wonder why we have a problem", Trump said.

And in a district that, though he won by 20 points in 2016, is now a swing district?

President Donald Trump has again called for enacting the death penalty for drug dealers during a rally meant to bolster a struggling GOP candidate for a US House seat. We love you. Hey, didn't we surprise them with women during the election?

"I may leave fast or we may sit down and make the greatest deal for the world". That's the president's well-known political slogan adoring hundreds of red hats at the rally. He reiterated that drug dealers ought to get the death penalty, criticized sanctuary cities for not cooperating with the Justice Department, and called for an end to "chain migration". The crowd roared its approval and began chanting "CNN sucks!" Worse would be the conclusion that Trump's support is a deficit rather than a plus, as was the case in Alabama's special Senate election past year when Roy Moore lost to Democrat Doug Jones.

McDaniel credits Trump for "record unemployment" and bringing "3 million jobs back to America".

Mr Trump also hinted he may not run for re-election, yet he rolled out a new campaign slogan - "Keep America Great!" - and took repeated swings at potential 2020 Democratic challengers. "Steel is back. And aluminum is back", he proclaimed.

McDaniel didn't specifically mention tariffs. He also pledged to work on reducing the United States trade deficits.

Trump endorsed Saccone in January, and outside Republican groups have spent more than $10 million on the race in support of Saccone, who's weak fundraising numbers have seen him outraised by Lamb by almost five-to-one in the first seven weeks of the year.

Lamb, a 33-year-old telegenic veteran of the Marine Corps is a stark contrast to the 60-year-old Saccone with a graying mustache.

As is typical at any Trump rally, the president delighted in relitigating the 2016 election-and, also typically, got key facts wrong.
