At rally, Trump again calls for the death penalty for drug dealers

DETROW: And he told the crowd he needs Republicans to do it. Democrat Conor Lamb may be conservative, Trump said.

Trump faced multiple accusations of sexual assault by women during the 2016 election, after the notorious Access Hollywood tape surfaced on which he boasted of groping women. "It is all coming back", Mr Trump said to the several thousand cheering supporters. And if Pelosi were in charge of the House, Trump said, Lamb would simply "vote the party line".

President Trump has recently made comments supporting the death penalty for drug dealers and while many did not take them seriously, it appears they should have.

A Saccone loss would be the first loss of a Republican seat in the House of Representatives since Mr Trump took office, although Republicans would still have control of the chamber.

It recalled the President's message during an White House summit on opioid abuse at the beginning of the month.

"I said, have I really had that kind of a problem?"

Trump, whose campaign slogan in 2016 was "Make America Great Again", indicated he would make a similar argument for his own re-election bid in 2020, and he previewed that campaign slogan: "Keep America Great (exclamation point)". He later said the countries of the European Union had banded together "to screw the USA on trade", and repeated a recent threat to slap tariffs on German luxury cars.

Trump talked about trade with Mexico and Canada and the ongoing NAFTA negotiations.

"Words matter", he said on NBC's "Meet the Press", whose host, Chuck Todd, had been the subject of some of Trump's most virulent tongue-lashing, including being called a "sleeping son of a bitch".

Eastern Ghouta's rebels agree to evacuate imprisoned Nusra fighters
Last month the Syrian government committed itself to reclaiming Eastern Ghouta, reportedly leaving more than 900 civilians dead. Damascus and Moscow accuse the insurgents of shooting at civilians to prevent them fleeing the fighting into government areas.

For more than an hour before the rally began, Saccone stood near the entrance with his wife, chatting with people as they arrived.

And, of course, no presidential public appearance would be complete without his usual attack on the "fake media".

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

And David Axelrod, a onetime top aide to President Obama, had a broader critique that suggested Trump's recent policy moves had been all about politics during what is looking like a tough midterm year for Republicans.

Lamb's response to the 75-minute event was muted.

Even though Trump won the area by more than 20 percentage points two years, the Saccone-Lamb race is considered too close to call. Trump is not only an unpopular president with an approval rating as low as 35%, but he's also a polarizing figure who inspires people to come out to vote against the GOP.

"Go out, vote for Rick".

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

Trump said that he originally got the idea from China's President, Xi Jinping, who this week was approved de facto president-for-life, as the Chinese Congress voted to remove term limits from its president.
