Trump Trashes ‘Terrible’ GOP Candidate Rick Saccone After Campaigning For Him In Pennsylvania: Report

On Saturday, President Donald Trump held a campaign rally in Pennsylvania to promote Republican candidate Rick Saccone, but he largely spent the campaign rally bragging about his own achievements instead of discussing the candidate. And there’s a reason Trump said hardly anything about Saccone.

Trump thinks Saccone is a terrible, “weak” candidate and has been privately attacking the GOP candidate in the Pennsylvania House special election, Axios reported Sunday citing four sources who’ve spoken to the president about Saccone.

According to the news outlet, Trump shared his opinion of the GOP candidate before and after traveling to Pennsylvania to stump for Saccone on Saturday.

While Trump spent the rally promoting himself, he took a brief moment to endorse Saccone.

“This guy should win easily, and he’s going to win easy. You got to know him. He’s an extraordinary person. Go out and vote on Tuesday for Rick Saccone,” Trump said of the current GOP state lawmaker.

“This administration has already made unprecedented progress on behalf of the American people and I look forward to working with him to continue to deliver on the promises made,” Saccone said in a statement following Trump’s appearance. “I could not have asked for a stronger endorsement of our campaign ahead of the March 13 special election.”

The special election has emerged as a surprisingly competitive race after Trump won the district by nearly 20 points in 2016.

A newly released poll found that Democrat Conor Lamb holds a four-point lead over Saccone, and Real-Clear-Politics has labeled the race a “toss-up.”
