Trump inflates his share of women's votes

President Donald Trump right acknowledges the crowd during a campaign rally with Republican Rick Saccone Saturday

And he rattled off several falsehoods, such as a claim that 52 percent of women voted for him in his presidential win (it was 52 percent of white women, according to exit polling).

The president is set to speak at Atlantic Aviation, capping a week in which he announced the imposition of steel and aluminum tariffs, and three days before the election in a traditionally Republican district.

Trump said last week that the administration would soon roll out unspecified "strong" policies on opioids. "We're saving the steel, and a lot of steel mills are opening up", the president said minutes into his speech. He ticked off what he said were his achievements - some coming in recent days - on a laundry list of issues like North Korea, trade and the economy, and attacked his predecessors for their failures on the same.

When his attention was on the race here, he seemed keenly aware of the size of his own victory in the district in 2016.

"This guy should win easily".

Polls show Saccone in a tight race with Democrat Conor Lamb in a district that Trump won by 20 percentage points. Both candidates in the special election to fill the seat vacated by Tim Murphy (R) back the president's decision on the import duties. "We need Republicans put in office", Trump later added. The deficit has forced the National Republican Congressional Committee and other conservative political groups to pour millions of dollars into the race. "This is a very important race".

Trump referred to the Democrat as "Lamb the sham", CNN reported. "If the Democrats were to prevail in western Pennsylvania, that would be quite an natural disaster", Rep. Charlie Dent said last week.

"Don't forget, this got us elected", he told the crowd outside Pittsburgh.

"Not all of our friends on Wall Street love it, but we love it", Mr. Trump said of the tariffs.

"There's also a segment of undecideds that hopefully they'll remember why they voted for Trump to begin with, and they'll come out and vote for me", Saccone said before talking to natural gas workers in Canonsburg. "And he's slightly younger than me". And if Pelosi were in charge of the House, Trump said, Lamb would simply "vote the party line". "And I want to help him". They give me credit for one.

Mario is already an iconic character and it's still popular even if many years have passed since it first hit the scene. So if you unlock the game's premium features through in-app purchase, it will cost you just $4.99 instead of 9.99.

"Steel is back, it's going to be back too", Trump said told the crowd. "I don't think we should play games".

Trump also said he spoke with Singaporean leaders about the country's "zero tolerance policy" toward drug dealers. "A drug dealer will kill 2,000, 3,000, 5,000 people during the course of his or her life ..."

"That's why we have a problem, folks", Trump continued.

"I may leave fast or we may sit down and make the greatest deal for the world".

"I don't know if that's popular". Trump said if he runs again which is "almost positive" he can not use his "Make America Great Again" tag line. Bernie Sanders, Massachusetts Sen.

Todd, whom Trump derided throughout the campaign as "sleepy eyes Chuck Todd", responded to Mnuchin with a deadpan tone.

The president said he's decided on a slogan for his 2020 re-election campaign. He said that he'd "love to beat Oprah" and that he knows "her weakness".

He said former presidents Barack Obama and George W. Bush had let North Korea's nuclear program go unchecked, resulting in a crisis he was determined to solve.

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". "I don't know if this country's ready for it".
