He tore into the media for diminishing what he has accomplished and asking hostile questions.

Trump also emphasized in all capital letters bringing "steel back" in a "very big" way.

He says, "They wanted me to go up and have a boxing match", but asks: "Whatever happened to diplomacy?" The rally was ostensibly to champion GOP Rep. Lou Barletta, who is running against Democratic incumbent Sen. However, Barletta is banking that the Trump endorsement will give him voter momentum in this swath Northeastern Pennsylvania considered the core of Trump country.

And he says: "He's like a legend".

Barletta, a four-term congressman, is challenging the two-term Casey.

During the rally, Trump introduced a new nickname for Casey, calling him "Sleeping Bob".

He was known for his strong anti-illegal-immigration views as the mayor of Hazleton, a city that like the state flipped from Barack Obama in 2012 to Trump in 2016.

"We're not exhausted of winning Mr. President", Barletta added. "We're not exhausted of winning".

"They were suffering that night, they were suffering", President Trump said of the election night pundits.

"Only negative stories from the fakers back there", the president said.

The Republican president is to discuss the economy, including jobs for Pennsylvanians, and his efforts to protect American manufacturing jobs. "He loves this state", Trump said of Barletta. Mr. Trump tweeted Thursday.

One man replied cheerfully, "I'm a proud Deplorable!" Almost 6,000 Democrats switched parties to vote for Trump in the 2016 Republican primary.

President Trump "barnstormed" in a state that he took from the Democrats in Y 2016 and that is home to a Senate seat he is trying to place in the Republicans' column this Fall.

Now another election season is underway, and Lou Barletta, the Republican candidate for Senate in Pennsylvania, has cast himself in the Trump mold, hoping to win statewide the way the president did. Trump, who has accelerated his campaign schedule in recent weeks to help the Republicans he favors both in primaries and November's midterms, was the first Republican to win Pennsylvania since 1988.
