Rally shows free-wheeling, media-bashing Trump here to stay

Trump's speech Saturday drew a quick response from the Congressional Black Caucus, a group of African-American lawmakers that is increasingly becoming an outspoken antagonist of the president and his administration.

Democrat Conor Lamb tops Republican Rick Saccone in Pennsylvania's 18th District by 51% to 45%, just outside the poll's 5.1-percentage-point margin of sampling error for likely voters. "Go out and vote on Tuesday for Rick Saccone", Trump said. In his latest political rant in Pennsylvania, Trump took aim at drug dealers. "As far as Saccone, I don't feel comfortable and I would tell the President that also: 'Sorry, I wish I could help you out, but Saccone doesn't impress me at all'".

"Some countries have a very tough penalty, the ultimate penalty, and they have much less of a drug problem than we do", Trump said during an appearance at a White House summit on opioids earlier this month.

Chairman of the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee Ron Johnson (R-WI) questions Kirstjen Nielsen (unseen) on her nomination to be secretary of the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) in Washington, U.S., November 8, 2017. "We have to have him". You can't help it.

In 2016, every day an average of 175 people died of drug overdoses in the US.

"Trump's message works well in the vast majority of Republican districts, less so in suburban districts that lean Republican", said Republican strategist John Feehery.

He told the big crowd that coal is making a comeback.

But it doesn't appear from speaking with union leaders and members here that Trump's popular move will necessarily translate to increased support for his chosen candidate, Saccone.

And whatever support they may have had from Trump fizzled nearly as soon as he gave it. Trump ignored their outstretched hand on universal background checks and started talking more about arming teachers.

Citing the stock market decline that followed his tariff announcement, Trump said: "Not all of our friends on Wall Street love it, but we love it".

The president said he's decided on a slogan for his 2020 re-election campaign. "I know her weakness", he said.

Foreign enemies, too, occupied Trump's mind.

"When you look at just money raised, volunteer efforts that have been put forth, the Democrats are running the most energized campaign that I've ever seen in this seat in near history", said DeVanney, who worked as a consultant for former Rep. Murphy. "I may leave fast, or we may sit down and make the greatest deal for the world and for all of these countries, including, frankly, North Korea, and that's what I hope happens".

Supported by both candidates, Trump's tariffs impose a 25 percent tax on imported steel and aluminum, with exemptions for Mexico and Canada. Trump said he was not sure if the US was ready to impose the death penalty on such offenders, but he said it should be part of a discussion.

"If President Trump's in your corner, how can you lose?" "It was one of the best reports, and you know the fantastic thing?"

Some argue executing drug dealers could have a raft of unintended consequences, such as deterring people from calling police when they know someone is overdosing.

"John McCain, Mitt Romney, and Donald Trump all won Pennsylvania's 18th district by at least 15 points, so the fact that this race is neck-and-neck clarifies that this tax scam is a political liability. So I don't think it's a responsible thing to do".

Trump also used the speech to double down on executing drug dealers, a solution he said has worked in China and Singapore. And he claimed that 52 percent of women voted for him in his presidential win (it was 52 percent of white women, according to exit polling). He singled out NBC's Chuck Todd as a "sleeping son of a bitch".
