President Trump went way off script - if he ever had one to begin with - in a Saturday night rally tumping for Republican candidate Rick Saccone, disparaging everyone from "low IQ" Rep. Maxine Waters, D-Calif., to NBC's "sleepy" Chuck Todd.
President Donald Trump has privately criticized Rick Saccone, the Republican candidate running in the Pennsylvania House race whose rally Trump attended Saturday, according to four sources who spoke with Axios. "If the Democrats were to prevail in western Pennsylvania, that would be quite an quake", Rep. Charlie Dent said last week.
Saccone may be President Donald Trump's strong favorite in a conservative region, but he's leaning seemingly exclusively on that and struggling with the basics of modern-day politics.
"The president's support is key to attaining victory", he roared to several thousand backers gathered near the Pittsburgh airport. His message, if voters hear it, is focused on his support for Trump, his experience in the public and private sector, his opposition to abortion rights, and efforts to link his opponent to the top Democrat in the U.S. House, California's Nancy Pelosi. While he will argue that he has done much to restore the country to greatness, he will have to make a case that there is enough left undone that he should be given another term to finish the job.
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. But, for the most part, the speech was a vehicle for Trump to talk about Trump.
"You'd be so bored", Trump said as he brushed off criticism that he should change his ways. "If I came like a stiff, you guys wouldn't be here tonight". "Is going to be 'Keep America Great, ' exclamation point", said Trump.
"I'd like to meet him", Debich says.
Foreign enemies, too, occupied Trump's mind.
George Washington University law professor Peter Meyers said he doesn't agree with the idea of adding more capital crimes for drug dealers, but the idea would "very likely" be constitutional. But if she runs, he warned a bit ominously, "I know her weakness". "But that's OK. Because that's what we do, we handle things". "We're gonna tax BMW".
Drug dealers kill people, destroy families and might deserve the death penalty or life in prison for their crimes, President Trump says.
But while the rally seemed to reveal a president happier than he had been in weeks, his mentioning of the new slogan, which he had alluded to for months but never before highlighted, pointed to the challenge he will face in 2020. "And they don't even put you in jail". "And I would think it's certainly helpful that he's coming up this weekend". He got 52 percent of white women's vote; he only garnered 41 percent of women voters overall, as a mere 4 percent of Black women and 25 percent of Hispanic women voted for him.
