Trump unleashed at raucous rally for embattled Pennsylvania Republican

Donald Trump Heads to Pennsylvania Steel Country

President Donald Trump attempted to energize his Republican base ahead of a Pennsylvania special election, talking up the plan for tariffs on steel imports, criticizing the media and Democrats, and praising the concept of the death penalty for drug dealers.

U.S. president Donald Trump said on Saturday his planned meeting with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un could fizzle without an agreement or it could be "the greatest deal for the world" to ease nuclear tensions between the two countries. "We need our congressman Saccone".

The race has become an unlikely battleground in a district the president won by over 19 percentage points in 2016. The Cook Political Report ratesthe contest as a "toss up".

Outside GOP groups have poured several million dollars into the race, airing television ads backing Saccone and attacking Lamb.

But Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin, also appearing on Todd's show, brushed off Trump's vulgar language, including his description of Democratic Rep. Maxine Waters, the ranking member of the House Committee on Financial Services, as a "low IQ" person. In Trump's telling, South Korea's President Moon Jae-in told him: "Without Donald Trump, the Olympics would have been a total failure".

Trump said last week that the administration would soon roll out unspecified "strong" policies on opioids. But regardless of the outcome, in this district that Republicans have held a stranglehold on for almost two decades, the fact that this race is so close is in large part because of the unpopularity of one person: Donald J. Trump. Don't forget this got us elected. And if Pelosi were in charge of the House, Trump said, Lamb would simply "vote the party line". Trump namechecked two California congresswomen, raising the warning of a Democrat-controlled House.

"I've very presidential", He said. "Steel is back. And aluminum is back", he proclaimed.

Trump tweeted Friday, saying he was looking forward to the event. "You know, we don't have a big margin".

Did Trump return to focusing on Saccone and providing detailed and compelling reasons to support him? "And I want to help him".

"Southwestern Pennsylvania doesn't need another downtown Pittsburgh liberal in congress", Saccone said. "I'm ready to go down there and be his wingman". When the Republican-controlled state legislature and Democratic Gov. Tom Wolf could not agree on a replacement, the court drew its own.

Some Republican operatives working on the campaign have cited that fundraising differential - Lamb has raised $3.9 million through February 21 compared with $918,000 by Saccone - as one of the reasons the Democrat has made this a competitive race.

Trump also mocked global criticism of the steel and aluminum tariffs he ordered this past week.

And come November, Democrats may have that same Trump to thank if they do, in fact, see an electoral blue wave sweep them into power.

Republicans have already started to place the blame squarely on Saccone should he lose, or narrowly win, on Tuesday. Trump said he got 52 percent of the women's vote, which is mostly true if you count only white women, which are apparently the only kind of women the president was focused on.

On Saturday, his call for executing drug dealers got some of the most enthusiastic cheers of the night.
