Voters must support GOP in Pittsburgh-area House race

Trump was officially here to inject some last-minute political capital behind Republican Rick Saccone, whose race against Democrat Conor Lamb could be a harbinger of the Republican Party's prospects in the midterms.

"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 offered a deal that was so good you can't refuse, right?

The latest Gallup polls show that just 55 per cent in the United States are in favor of the death penalty for murder - a decline from recent decades, but higher than the historic lows in the 1960s.

Even though Lamb is distancing himself from liberal policies and running in Trump's direction, Democrats are hoping that a win in this race would show they have a chance to take over the House of Representatives in this fall's congressional elections.

"The whole world, remember that". "The task for everyone here tonight is to make sure that this great American comeback continues".

Mr Trump vowed to fight any retaliatory trade measures by, for example, slapping taxes on imported European cars. They've painted Lamb as a lackey of House Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi of California and weak on immigration. U.S. Sen. Jeff Flake (R-Ariz.) said on NBC's "Meet the Press" that Trump needs a primary challenge.

He went after CNN, too, for its coverage of his recent decision to accept a meeting with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un.

The president is set to speak at Atlantic Aviation, capping a week in which he announced the imposition of steel and aluminum tariffs, and three days before the election in a traditionally Republican district. His bottom line, though: "I'm not voting for any liberal who's going to advance the Democratic Party agenda".

"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 last week. "But for getting your votes, he's talking about how much he likes tariffs, which is my baby".

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". "And he's slightly younger than me". "Personally, I like Rick Saccone". "And I would think it's certainly helpful that he's coming up this weekend". He reiterated that drug dealers ought to get the death penalty, criticized sanctuary cities for not cooperating with the Justice Department, and called for an end to "chain migration".

"We can't just keep setting up blue ribbon committees" that do nothing but "talk, talk, talk", Trump said.

"If you shoot one person, you get life in prison", Trump said, The Washington Post reported.

'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 do anything, ' he continued.

"That's why we have a problem, folks". "Don't forget, this got us elected", Trump said of his casual, seat-of-the-pants speaking style. "Now, I never did polling on that - I don't know if that's popular, I don't know if that's unpopular".
