>> I love this place. Hello Pittsburg. Hello Pittsburg.>> President Donald Trump was where he likes best Saturday night in Pennsylvania, the campaign trail. He let loose a whirlwind 75 minute stump speech for Republican Rick Saccone. Polls say he faces a tight race against Democrat Conor Lamb in a district that voted overwhelmingly for Trump.
00:00:22
>> So he's a good person. I don't know if that means, does that mean anything?>> This race could signal how much help Trump can lend Republicans vying to keep control of Congress in the fall midterm elections. The president's supporters lined up in the cold for hours for a chance to see a Make America Great Again Rally, and the president made sure to play up his tariffs in Pennsylvania steel country.
00:00:42
>> And we're saving the steel, and a lot of steel mills are now opening up because of what I did.>> Trump also used this time at the podium to tout his own fortunes, and wade in to a number of subjects. He even tossed out the idea of imposing the death penalty, or life imprison for drug dealers.
00:00:59
>> I don't know that the United States frankly is ready for it. They should be ready for it.>> Trump also made sure to mention his role in South Korea hosting a successful Winter Olympics, saying it's a little hard to sell tickets when you think you're going to be nuked.
00:01:12
And claimed credit for easing tensions with Pyongyang. The speech comes days after Trump's snapped decision to meet with Kim Jong-un by May.>> Who knows, it happens. If it doesn't happen, I may leave fast or we may sit down and make the greatest deal for the world, and for all of these countries, including frankly North Korea.
