Trump botches the election scorecard again

U.S. President Donald Trump signs a presidential proclamation placing tariffs on steel and aluminum imports while surrounded by workers from the steel and aluminum industries at the White House in Washington

"Some countries have a very, very tough penalty - the ultimate penalty", Trump said during last week's summit.

He called Mr. Saccone "a really good person" and invited the candidate on stage during the rally.

He said his unprecedented meeting could go two very different ways: "We may leave fast" or strike one of history's greatest deals. That's because he will already have spent years in office. A survey of voters shows 4% of black women and 25% of Hispanic women supported Trump.

"You 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 they don't even put you in jail", Trump said.

He also, after receiving some boos upon first mentioning Kim, the North Korean dictator, said he thought the North Koreans "want peace".

Like the volatile, and at times violent, campaign rallies that Trump hosted prior to the 2016 presidential election, he peppered his speech with insults, some old and some new.

Trump said that allowing prosecutors to seek the death penalty for drug dealers - an idea he said he got from China's President Xi Jinping - is "a discussion we have to start thinking about".

He say he thinks "it's time".

Trump urged Pennsylvania to support Republican Rick Saccone in the special election on Tuesday.

"But we can only do that if we elect people who are going to back our agenda and fight for our values", Trump said.

For Mr. Trump, now that he has chosen to insert himself into the race, after a string of Republican losses in special elections, it may also be a test of his ability to help win elections.

Special Counsel Robert Mueller Is 'The Bachelor' In New SNL Cold Open
Oh my God, I have to wait two more years for him to be out of office?" she continues. Then appears special counsel Mueller ( Kate McKinnon ).

Saccone is telling several thousand supporters gathered for a rally with Trump that they must send "an ally of the president" because "we've got a country to save". And, always the showman, he dropped a bit of news, revealing the slogan for his 2020 re-election campaign: Keep America Great.

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. The president tweeted Friday night that he is looking forward to speaking publicly in support of the GOP candidate. The crowd roared its approval and began chanting "CNN sucks!"

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

Trump also said he hoped to run for reelection against Democrat Oprah Winfrey, although the entertainer has ruled out a run.

Trump gave a nod to those dynamics, noting talk of Lamb as a handsome candidate.

With his low poll numbers, Republican leaders and the White House are trying to determine how to handle his desire to campaign in the midterms. Saccone is now going up against Democrat Conor Lamb.

But Trump risked another embarrassing defeat after backing Republican Roy Moore in last December's Alabama Senate election, only to watch Moore lose a seat his party had held since 1997.

Saccone is pitted against Lamb to fill a seat left empty by Republican incumbent Tim Murphy, who quit in 2017 after reports surfaced that he told a mistress to get an abortion.

The race has become an unlikely battleground in a district the president won by over 19 percentage points in 2016.

Both are looking to replace Republican Tim Murphy, a publicly pro-life elected official who resigned a year ago after he reportedly encouraged his mistress to get an abortion.
