President Donald Trump made a stop just outside Pittsburgh on Saturday night to campaign for state Rep. Rick Saccone (R-Allegheny) days ahead of the special election for the 18th Congressional district.
During his speech Trump touted the his administration’s steel tariffs, job creation, the recent news about North Korea, and his 2016 win.
“They’re opening a lot of the steel mills up because of what I did. Steel is back and aluminum is back too,” Trump said according to the Post-Gazette.
Talking about North Korea Trump said, “Lots of good things, I think, are going to happen. But we’ll see. … I think they want to make. Peace. I think its’ time, and I think we’ve shown great strength.”
Trump touted Saccone, saying he needed him in Congress.
“I need people who can help me. And this guy can really help me: Rick Saccone. And he’s got a tough race,” Trump said.
Trump contrasted Saccone’s support for his agenda with his Democratic opponent Conor Lamb saying he is acting “like a Republican” but “won’t give me a single vote.”
