President Donald Trump, right, encourages Rep. Jim Jordan, R-Ohio, left, to speak during a rally, Saturday, Aug. 4, 2018, in Lewis Center, Ohio.
President Donald Trump is predicting a "tremendous victory" for OH state Sen.
While the OH governor is claiming that Trump has managed to alienate a decent portion of the Republican party's base, he continues to insist that Balderson will still wind up winning the election due to O'Connor's "weak" campaign.
Trump didn't circle back to his criticism of basketball star LeBron James, who a couple of days earlier he tweeted was stupid after James slammed the president during an interview about the charter school he's opening. The statement didn't criticize Trump. "He made Lebron look smart, which isn't easy to do", Trump tweeted.
"The best-case scenario is that the presence of the president reminds not only Republicans but center-right voters that there's a special election on Tuesday", Doug Preisse, chairman of the Franklin County Republican Party said Thursday.
He blasted the media as "fake news", saying journalists "were awful people", and went on a screed against illegal immigration.
Apple Pulls Five InfoWars Podcasts From iTunes Over 'Hate Speech'
At present, only the InfoWars podcast, " Real News With David Knight ", is still available via Apple's Podcast app or iTunes. Spotify removed several episodes of "The Alex Jones Show" last week, citing violations of its policy against hateful speech.
He went on a screed against illegal immigration and basked in cheers as the crowd chanted a campaign rallying cry: "Build the wall, build the wall".
- President Donald Trump is seizing on the prospect of Democrat Nancy Pelosi becoming House speaker again as he makes his pitch for Republican candidates. Trump said. "What a great defender he's been, what courage".
Here's how CNN (tellingly) framed the Saturday night appearance by Trump: "A Monmouth University poll released this week shows a tight race, with Balderson receiving 44 percent support to O'Connor's 43 percent, with 11 percent of respondents saying they are undecided".
John Kasich warned Sunday the red state's special election Tuesday to replace retiring GOP Rep.
He defended his trade policies and, at one point, seemed to suggest that the markets would be up another 40 percent without his tariffs - but said the measures were needed or the nation would eventually have to "pay the piper".
The Ohio rally was Trump's third of the week and he has pledged to accelerate his pace further as the midterms approach.
