Fact-check: Trump inflates his share of women's votes

12 March 2018

"Will be going to Pennsylvania today in order to give my total support to RICK SACCONE, running for Congress in a Special Election (March 13)". Should Lamb win, it would be another indication of a hard road ahead for the GOP in this year's midterms. But, 'Women won't like Donald Trump. A Saccone loss would be the first loss of a Republican seat in the House of Representatives since Trump took office in January 2017, although Republicans would still control of the chamber. "We have to get out, and we have to vote".

Come Tuesday, we may find that Trump's Saturday night rally may have actually helped the Democratic candidate there by mobilizing more of Trump's opponents to vote.

"Oh I'd love Oprah to win, I'd love to beat Oprah". In a January interview Trump said that he is not a feminist, because he's not exclusively supportive of women but of all people. "And, by the way, they have much less of a drug problem than we do". "Don't forget, this got us elected", Trump said of his casual, seat-of-the-pants speaking style. "He's going to vote the party line".

"Do me a favor".

Trump's appearance was part of a White House push to help Saccone avoid a once-unlikely defeat.

Having campaigned on the tariff issue, Trump said the duties are created to counter bad trade deals and revive manufacturing jobs that have gone overseas.

On Thursday, Trump signed two tariff proclamations to erect a 25% tariff on steel imports and a 10% tariff aluminum imports.

"This should've been handled, by the way, over the last 30 years".

Trump also mocked global criticism of the steel and aluminum tariffs he ordered this past week. "But that's OK", he added, "because that's what we do".

While aides pondered details of the meeting - and say it may not happen unless Kim takes affirmative steps - Trump expressed confidence in tweets as well as at the Pennsylvania rally.

Trump talked up the economy since his election.

The president mentioned crime and the gang MS-13 - just as he had in his recent State of the Union address.

The president called for the death penalty for drug dealers, leveled insults against politicians and journalists, touted his progress on North Korea and looked ahead to his 2020 campaign.

He recalled his testy telephone conversation last month with Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto, which ended in an impasse over Trump's promised border wall and an agreement to scrap Peña Nieto's planned trip to Washington. "We're gonna tax Mercedes Benz".

"We're saving the steel, and a lot of steel mills are now opening up because of what I did", Trump said.

Trump talked about trade with Mexico and Canada and the ongoing NAFTA negotiations. Trump was blunt about that as he stood with Saccone on the stage at the end of the rally. Trump also attacked the new map, calling it "very unfair". Trump once again singled out CNN, MSNBC and NBC for what he views as their biased coverage of him and their poor ratings.

After promising to "Make America Great Again", President Donald Trump seemed to be gearing up for 2020 re-election, announcing his new slogan to be "Keep America Great!" They're all watching because I won this district, like, by 22 points.

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

But Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin, also appearing on Todd's show, brushed off Trump's vulgar language, including his description of Democratic Rep. Maxine Waters, the ranking member of the House Committee on Financial Services, as a "low IQ" person.

On Sept. 22, Trump held a rally in Huntsville, Alabama, to encourage his supporters to vote in the GOP primary for Luther Strange, who had been appointed to fill the Senate seat vacated by Attorney General Jeff Sessions, R. While on stage, Trump acknowledged he "might have made a mistake" in endorsing Strange, who went on to lose the primary to Roy Moore, whom numerous president's supporters had endorsed. "I came tonight because this guy is special", the president also said of Saccone.

"Go out, vote for Rick".
