Trump officials study death penalty for drug dealers in opioid epidemic

The poll uses the most likely scenario - a turnout model that assumes performance in Pennsylvania's 18th District will be similar to other recent special elections in which Democratic turnout has generally exceeded that in past elections.

"One of the things we learned from the Clinton scandals of the '90s is that if people's lives are good and the economy is improving, they pay a lot less attention to the personal peccadilloes of politicians", the source said.

"Here's the problem: As soon as he gets in, he's not going to vote for us", Trump also said of Lamb. "I don't know if we're ready - I don't know if this country's ready for it", Trump said. "I will never forget what you've done for me". Bernie Sanders and Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren of MA.

The president said he's decided on a slogan for his 2020 re-election campaign. They are hoping that this leads to a victory in the district, which voted for Trump by a 17% margin, but still on paper at least has 70,000 more registered Democrats than Republicans.

"Oh I'd love Oprah to win, I'd love to beat Oprah".

GOP strategist Dan Judy said that the closeness of the race underlines "the conventional wisdom, which is correct: that this is a tough environment for Republicans - and especially when the president is unpopular, that gives us significant headwinds".

Speaking with reporters before leaving the White House, Trump cited South Korean claims that North Korea has agreed to stop nuclear testing and is willing to commit to de-nuclearization.

Trump spoke two days after the stunning announcement that he has accepted an invitation to meet with Kim about his nuclear weapons program.

Ciccarone said there is also concern that the laws could ensnare low-level drug dealers, many of whom do not know that their products contain lethal amounts of opioids and some of whom are battling addiction.

The Democratic group American Bridge launched a digital ad citing Saccone comments in which he said families should shoulder costs and there was no funding to combat the crisis. "We can't say make America great again as I already did that".

President Trump is holding a campaign rally outside of Pittsburgh on Saturday night to boost Republican congressional candidate Rick Saccone, who has been struggling to lock up a special election in a district Trump won by almost 20 points in the 2016 election. The election is set for Tuesday.

"Do we love our president here in western Pennsylvania?"

Pennsylvania voter Michelle Grimpe similarly tells CNN that she's backing Saccone - but she says that she doesn't "like necessary how the president presents himself" and she said that Trump's attitude made her feel tempted to back Saccone's rival, Democrat Conor Lamb.

Trump is not a fan of the congressional hopeful and privately disparaged Saccone as a bad candidate, calling him "weak", according to a report last night by Axios. He predicted a "big & happy crowd (why not, some of the best economic numbers ever)".

"This is Conor Lamb versus Rick Saccone, period", Waters said in a phone interview recently. National GOP forces could exceed $10 million in spending on the race, and Saturday was the president's second recent visit to the area.

Mr Trump talked up his decision this past week to impose tariffs on steel and aluminium imports - a move deeply opposed by congressional Republicans and the business wing of the GOP, yet popular in this Pittsburgh suburb, the heart of steel country.

Their candidates made strong showings previous year in special congressional elections in Georgia, Kansas and Montana, but ultimately fell short in those Republican strongholds. He also avoids criticizing Trump.
