Trump's speech proves why he is GOP's worst enemy

He raged against Mexican president Enrique Peña Nieto for refusing to pay for a border wall: "I said: 'Are you crazy?'".

Trump's appearance was part of a White House press to help Saccone in the closing days, adding to the $8 million plus that national Republican groups have already spent on his behalf.

The president's call for a return of the death penalty was immediately criticized, including by some former Trump acolytes. Kelly Ann Conway spoke at a Republican fundraiser last week on behalf of Saccone.

"Our new slogan, when we start running, in - can you believe it, two years from now - is going to be, Keep America Great, exclamation point", the President said.

Trump treated his fans to a preview of what is to come in 2020 tonight while at a Make America Great Again rally in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.

"Is there anything more fun than a Trump rally?" he asked on the heels of a whirlwind week in which his chief economics adviser said he was resigning, he formalised steep tariffs on steel and aluminium that angered business leaders and allies, and abruptly announced, through South Korean officials, that he meant to meet with Kim Jong Un, the North Korean leader.

In the aftermath of the shock announcement that Trump would meet with North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un, he touched upon his relationship with the man he once publicly derided as "little Rocket Man".

Serena Williams returns to the tour for the first time in 14 months Thursday when she plays a first-round match. But Osaka held to go up 5-4 and broke Sharapova on a double fault to close out the set.


"Fake as hell, CNN". There are also doubts about how far Mr Trump's policies will go toward resuscitating the battered American steel industry.

To cheers and laughter, Trump hurled some old and new slurs toward his opponents as he complained about his media coverage and perceived Democratic obstruction.

"Could you imagine covering Bernie?" Elizabeth Warren, with his racist nickname for her, "Pocahontas".

He said the candidate he most wants to run against in 2020 is Oprah Winfrey, predicting the campaign "would be a painful experience for her". "I don't know if this country's ready for it". "Wouldn't we love to run against Oprah?" "I would love it". He also touted five points of his experience - education, diplomacy, the military, worldwide business and government - that he said will help Trump advance his agenda in Washington.

Mr Trump argued that in the United States, people convicted of murder often received a life sentence or the death penalty, but drug dealers did not, despite killing "thousands of people". Remember? 'Women won't like Donald Trump.' I said, have I really had that kind of a problem? "We can't just keep setting up blue ribbon committees". That appears to be a nod to the president's decision to impose tariffs on foreign steel and aluminum. They give me credit for one. A loss by Saccone to Democratic Marine veteran and former prosecutor Conor Lamb would be seen as a major warning sign for the GOP ahead of November's midterm elections.

Trump kicked off the Moon Township rally Saturday night telling voters to support state Rep. Rick Saccone, the Republican vying for a US congressional seat.

The president tweeted Friday night that he is looking forward to speaking publicly in support of the GOP candidate. But at the same time, public health officials - including those in the Trump administration - and many in law enforcement are emphasizing treatment rather than punitive measures for low-level users and those addicted to drugs.
