The president has said as much in an interview with Reuters earlier this year, “I am going to spend probably four or five days a week helping people because we need more Republicans."
“Is there anything more fun than a Trump rally?” Trump asked the riled up crowd outside Pittsburgh.
Trump was in Pennsylvania to campaign for GOP candidate Rick Saccone ahead of a special election on March 13. But the president spent the majority of his freewheeling remarks, which stretched for about an hour-and-fifteen minutes, talking about himself and even revealed what his 2020 reelection campaign slogan will be.
"Our new slogan when we start running in, can you believe it, two years from now, is going to be 'Keep America Great' exclamation point," the president said, drawing an exclamation mark in the air for emphasis.
While an aide said President Trump privately views Saccone as a weak candidate, the aide said the president feels that he has no choice but to lend a hand to the Republican candidate facing off in the Pennsylvania special election that is widely viewed as a bellwether for more of what’s to come in November.
"The world is watching. I hate to put this pressure on you, Rick, they're all watching," Trump said Saturday. "I won this district by 22 points. That's a lot. That's why I'm here. Look at all those red hats, Rick."
