  • President Donald Trump listens during a cabinet meeting at the White House in Washington

"I said, 'What do you mean no problem?' 'That means if we catch a drug dealer, death penalty".

"Hey, didn't we surprise them with women during the election?" he said, noting that his opponent was a woman.

"We have to build a wall", he said.

After confirming last week that he would meet with North Korean leader Kim Jong-un, a first for a USA president, Mr Trump said on Sunday he could quickly walk away if a breakthrough appeared unlikely. "The people of Pittsburgh can not be conned by this guy Lamb, because he's not going to vote for us". We'll only know in the days following the election, but the simple fact that Conor Lamb has erased any deficit is a sign of momentum, and win or lose on Tuesday, he has a bright future ahead of him in electoral politics.

TRUMP: That's much easier than doing what I have to do because - but this is much more effective. "I might like him".

"Candidate quality and quality campaigns matter", said Courtney Alexander, a spokeswoman with the Congressional Leadership Fund, a GOP superPAC close to House Speaker Paul Ryan, R-Wis., that has invested $3.5 million into the race. A victory in such a Republican-leaning district would boost their hopes and renew GOP concerns of a bad November.

Saccone, a Pennsylvania state representative, will face former federal prosecutor Conor Lamb, the Democratic nominee, in a special election March 13 to replace former Rep. Tim Murphy, a Republican, who resigned in October because of a sex scandal. And if Pelosi were in charge of the House, he said, Lamb would simply "vote the party line".

It marked Trump's most explicit public statements on the topic although he previously praised Philippines President Rodrigo Duterte who is leading a campaign of alleged extrajudicial killings against drug dealers and users.


"This guy should win easily", Trump said.

In a campaign stop three days before a crucial special election for Congress, Donald Trump advocated the death penalty for drug dealers in the course of an hour-long rambling campaign style speech where he bashed television anchors, unveiled his re-election slogan and discussed nuclear arms negotiations with North Korea. Vice President Mike Pence spoke at a fundraiser in February in Pennsylvania.

"The Republicans are 5-0 in recent Congressional races, a point which the Fake News Media continuously fails to mention", Trump wrote on Twitter. Instead, one of the top headlines was "Trump Slams NBC's Chuck Todd at Rally: 'Sleepy-Eyed Son of a Bitch'".

Pennsylvania's 18th Congressional District has an estimated 17,000 steelworkers and nearly 90,000 voters from union households. "It could happen, it doesn't happen", Trump said of the meeting.

Trump and the Republican Party have gone all in to prevent an embarrassing defeat.

For his part, Saccone was delighted to have support from the White House.

For a few moments Saturday, Trump gave voters a glimpse into the alternate universe where he's a traditional, cautious and scripted commander in chief. Tim Murphy since 2002, until he resigned previous year after allegations that the anti-abortion congressman encouraged his mistress to have one.

Mr. Trump, who beat Hillary Clinton in Pennsylvania's 18th congressional district by about 20 points, said that Mr. Saccone would support his agenda in Congress.
