Trump campaigs in Pennsylvania congressional race

Donald Trump has spoken to thousands of supporters at a campaign rally in Pennsylvania

"I don't know if we're ready - I don't know if this country's ready for it", he said during a campaign rally for Republican congressional candidate Rick Saccone. "That's it", Trump told the crowd. "You know, it's not that easy", he said, referring to his presidential political rival, Hillary Clinton.

Polls are tight. And Democrats think Lamb has a real chance to win. Don't forget this got us elected.

"I think it's a discussion we have to start thinking about", Trump said. "And I want to help him". "And even if Republicans hold onto the seat Tuesday night, that should be a cause for concern among the GOP faithful". A victory in such a Republican-leaning district would boost their hopes and renew GOP concerns of a bad November.

Lamb is a Marine veteran, former prosecutor, and an Ivy League grad.

Instead, Trump repeatedly lashed out at the "fake, fake media" and insulted reporters, prompting the crowd to break into a round of a favorite 2016 chant, "CNN sucks". Although the Democratic candidate supports the steel tariffs and has taken other conservative positions, Trump said he is "weak" on crime and immigration, and would vote the Democratic line in Congress in order to thwart the Trump agenda.

TRUMP: Right? Same people - they're saying not that big of a deal.

Trump continued his attacks on the press, criticizing media coverage of his decision to meet with the leader of North Korea and complaining that he doesn't get credit for accomplishments. Trump once again singled out CNN, MSNBC and NBC for what he views as their biased coverage of him and their poor ratings.

Nun in property dispute with Katy Perry dies after collapsing in court
We extend our prayers today to the Immaculate Heart of Mary community and to all her friends and loved ones", he continued. Just hours before Holzman's passing, the 89-year-old nun begged Perry to no longer pursue her purchase of the property.

The race has become an unlikely battleground in a district the president won by over 19 percentage points in 2016.

A day after getting news that the United States economy produced 313,000 jobs last month, Trump said his policies are paying off. He sidestepped the fact that most of his own party's leaders oppose tariffs, as well. Rick will help me a lot. But regardless of the outcome, in this district that Republicans have held a stranglehold on for almost two decades, the fact that this race is so close is in large part because of the unpopularity of one person: Donald J. Trump.

Saccone, 60, is running against 33-year-old Democrat Conor Lamb on March 13 for a congressional seat that opened after Republican Rep. Tim Murphy, an avid pro-life lawmaker, resigned amid reports that he'd asked his mistress to get an abortion when he believed she was pregnant.

Saccone has underwhelmed national Republicans, particularly with fundraising.

Trump will be campaigning on behalf of Saccone, a state representative, in Moon Township, Pennsylvania Saturday evening. But he said he thinks he's better looking, and added that Saccone "is handsome", too.

After inviting Saccone to the stage, the Pennsylvanian sang the president's praises.

TRUMP: You have to have him. He raged against Mexican president Enrique Peña Nieto for refusing to pay for a border wall: "I said: 'Are you crazy?'". This - I hate to put this pressure on you, Rick.
