Trump blasts Pelosi, LeBron James before OH campaign rally

Adjust Comment Print

Troy Balderson is vying for an open House seat in central OH against Democrat Danny O'Connor, a county official. "But in the general election, Democrats all hate Trump and among Independents he's mostly upside-down", Murphy said on NBC's "Meet the Press".

Trump tweeted late Friday that James was interviewed "by the dumbest man on television", CNN anchor Don Lemon, but that he "made Lebron look smart, which isn't easy to do".

Republican candidates across the country are attempting to appeal to Trump supporters by seeking to closely align themselves with the president and his agenda. He tore into Waters, who is also black, and derided her as "an extremely low IQ person". He said journalists are "terrible people". "You know, I think Donald Trump decides where he wants to go and I think they think they're firing up his base" with the Trump rallies.

Paul Pogba angered by José Mourinho's view of World Cup exploits
Italian newspaper, TuttoSport reports that Juventus are ready to beat Barcelona for Pogba's signature by including Pjanic. Pogba was inconsistent last season and was even dropped by the United boss for a spell in the second half of the season.

Here in CT, of course, that latter term is said in revulsion by GOP leadership to describe funds that are used to attract industry to this state in competition against primarily Republican-ruled states that also dangle financial incentives before companies to induce them to locate there.

Trump also brought to the stage Ohio Representative Jim Jordan, "a tough cookie". He touted Balderson's record on crime and immigration and claimed that O'Connor, if he won, would be a "puppet" of Nancy Pelosi, who stands to reclaim the title of speaker of the House if Democrats seize control of the body this fall. Earlier this afternoon, Trump called for Ohioans to re-elect U.S. Rep. Steve Stivers (R-Upper Arlington) in the special U.S. House election next Tuesday.

The Ohio rally was Trump's third of the week and he has pledged to accelerate his pace further as the midterms approach. It was unclear Saturday why Hicks, who left the White House in March, was accompanying the president's team.
