MOON TOWNSHIP, PENNSYLVANIAUS President Donald Trump promoted his steel and aluminium tariffs and tossed out an idea to have drug dealers face the death penalty, addressing a raucous rally on Saturday for a Republican congressional candidate in a tight race. Human rights groups and the United Nations have condemned Duterte's vigilante-style campaign that has left thousands of suspected drug dealers and users dead.
Saccone is now going up against Democrat Conor Lamb.
Elsewhere, he did take a moment to praise Saccone in the speech, saying "he knows things other people don't know" before slamming the Democratic candidate as "Lamb the Sham".
"The whole world, remember that".
He also mentioned first lady Melania Trump, telling the crowd: "You think her life is so easy, folks?" "This is a very important race".
He couldn't leave without giving voters a preview to his reelection campaign for 2020. Lamb touts his resume and declares that he wouldn't vote for Democratic House leader Nancy Pelosi as party leader. But he scrapped his prepared remarks on Saccone, improvising and at one point handing the microphone to Saccone, too.
Likewise, if Lamb outperformed Clinton in the most heavily Democratic areas and most Republican areas, and, for the purposes of debate, took 72 percent of the vote in the bluest areas where Clinton only took 56 percent and 41 percent in the reddest areas where Clinton only took 26 percent, that would still only get Lamb within nine points.
The local AFL-CIO is calling members and going door-to-door to ensure they vote for Lamb on Tuesday.
What do you think of Trump's latest statements? "But for getting your votes, he's talking about how much he likes tariffs, which is my baby".
Deadly blasts in Austin connected, police believe
He says that package was brought into the kitchen where it detonated, killing a 17-year-old boy and injuring the woman. Anthony Stephan House, 39, was killed March 2 when a package exploded at his northeast Austin home, KEYE reports.
But Saccone has been struggling to gain enthusiasm in Trump country. "And he's slightly younger than me". And if Pelosi were in charge of the House, Trump said, Lamb would simply "vote the party line".
President Trump has again called for subjecting convicted drug dealers to the death penalty. "I don't think we should play games". But, he said, someone can "kill 5,000 people with drugs because you're smuggling them in and you're making a lot of money and people are dying", and go without serious punishment. "I just don't understand that people say we shouldn't put lobsters into hot, boiling water. but we can kill babies". "I will never forget what you've done for me". "We can't just keep setting up blue-ribbon committees with your wife and your wife and your husband, and they meet and they have a meal and they talk, talk talk talk, two hours later, then they write a report".
Saturday night, at a rally near Pittsburgh for congressional hopeful Rick Saccone, Trump all but announced his re-election bid, announcing his slogan - "Keep America Great!" - touting his accomplishments, berating "evil" Washington insiders and decrying the "fake news media".
Since President Trump has repeatedly expressed his desire to execute USA drug dealers, his administration is looking into a new policy allowing just that, according to the Washington Post. Bernie Sanders, Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren with the slur "Pocahontas".
He said that he'd "love to beat Oprah" and that he knows "her weakness".
Speaking with reporters before leaving the White House, Trump cited South Korean claims that North Korea has agreed to stop nuclear testing and is willing to commit to de-nuclearization.
He also spoke about his recent revelation that he had agreed to meet with Kim Jong Un, before hitting out at his predecessors who had failed to organise it before now.
"Who knows what's going to happen?"
