Trump also reprised his criticism of liberal Senator Elizabeth Warren, whom he mocks as "Pocahantas", and Senator Bernie Sanders, the far left independent who challenged Hillary Clinton for the Democratic nomination in 2016.
The congressional seat was vacated a year ago by Rep. Tim Murphy, an antiabortion Republican who resigned after media reports of text messages in which he urged his mistress to get an abortion. It became vacant after eight-term Congressman Tim Murphy resigned amid scandal.
As Trump spoke about policies on the issue in China and Singapore, dozens of people nodded their heads in agreement. "They want to stop us from doing things", Trump said of Democrats.
Trump, referring to those dynamics, noted talk of Lamb as a handsome candidate. But the president said the policy is evidence of his defense of the working class. Pennsylvania's 18th Congressional District has an estimated 17,000 steelworkers and nearly 90,000 voters from union households. I don't think we should play games!' he said.
Trump praised other countries for imposing the death penalty or life in prison for drug dealers, saying the United States should consider similar penalties. White House officials said Trump has privately expressed interest in Singapore's policy of executing drug dealers. But these people are killing our kids and they're killing our families, and we have to do something.
"We can't just keep setting up blue ribbon committees" that do nothing but "talk, talk, talk", Trump said.
"There's also a segment of undecideds that hopefully they'll remember why they voted for Trump to begin with, and they'll come out and vote for me", Saccone said before talking to natural gas workers in Canonsburg. "I don't know if we're ready - I don't know if this country's ready for it". But by the next day, the coverage had turned.
"President, do you have a job problem?'" Trump told the Pennsylvania crowd. I think they wanna make peace. If Democrats manage to retake the lower chamber, it is also Trump's presidency that would face an existential threat: impeachment. "Women! We love you!"
He said former presidents Barack Obama and George W. Bush had let North Korea's nuclear program go unchecked, resulting in a crisis he was determined to solve. And there was a nice unity.
At the rally, Trump also revealed what he said will be the replacement for "Make America Great Again" during a rally for a Republican congressional candidate in Pennsylvania where he lambasted several potential Democratic rivals, including Vermont Sen. I said: 'Bye-bye. We're not making a deal.'" North Korea, he said, was "tough", and "should have been handled. and everybody will say it, too.
Looking forward, Trump announced his 2020 campaign slogan would be "Keep America great" since he had already "made America great again".
"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.
"Wouldn't we love to run against Oprah?" he asked.
"Hopefully, the United States Supreme Court will take that case, because this is awful what they've done", Trump said.
