Donald Trump touches down outside Pittsburgh ahead of PA-13th election
Mar 13 2018
Kansas' 4th district, vacated by CIA Director Mike Pompeo, was won by Republican Rep. Ron Estes. In October, Trump was forced to withdraw his nomination of Pennsylvania Republican Representative Tom Marino to head the federal Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA) after it was revealed that the congressman had spearheaded efforts to cripple the agency's ability to regulate the pharmaceutical industry's dispersal of cheap prescription painkillers.
Trump delivered "about five minutes" of what had been scripted for Saturday night's rally, a White House official familiar with the speech said.
Trump compared the supposedly lenient drug laws in the United States to the "zero tolerance" laws existing in countries such as Singapore and China, saying "I think it's a discussion we have to start thinking about". He repeatedly referred to Sen.
But when it came to the North Korean leader, Trump was more restrained.
"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 added that a Winfrey candidacy would be a "painful experience for her". "We're gonna tax BMW", Trump told the crowd. He also touted five points of his experience - education, diplomacy, the military, global business and government - that he said will help Trump advance his agenda in Washington.
Mr Saccone is trying to win an election on Tuesday in Pennsylvania's 18th District to replace Republican Tim Murphy, who resigned in the midst of a sex scandal.
Public polling shows the race as a toss-up; many closely watching the race - including some Republicans - give Lamb the edge. He's also backed several of Trump's policies, including the president's recent steel tariffs. "You ever see her?".
"The task for everyone here tonight is to make sure that this great American comeback continues".
Saccone said that with Trump's support, he expects to win this this Tuesday.
While aides pondered details of the meeting - and say it may not happen unless Kim takes affirmative steps - Trump expressed confidence in tweets as well as at the Pennsylvania rally. "Time and place to be determined". "The promise is they wouldn't be shooting off missiles in the meantime, and they're looking to de-nuke", he said.
"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.
"It's little hard to sell tickets when you think you're going to be nuked", he said.
"These people are killing our kids and they're killing our families, and we have to do something", he said.
It might be legally possible to make more drug-related offenses capital crimes in the US, but critics of harsher penalties for drug offenders point out that such a policy could backfire and worsen the epidemic. "Wouldn't we love to run against Oprah?" Remember? 'Women won't like Donald Trump.' I said, have I really had that kind of a problem? "Steel is back. And aluminum is back", he proclaimed. Neither Lamb nor Saccone has made the ongoing Russian Federation investigation bedeviling Trump part of his pitch, but the paper insisted the country must not "dive into so great a distraction".
"This guy should win easily", Trump said, pointing to the size of his own victory.
