"You wonder why we have a problem", he said. He added, "All the traditional things, we're doing".

In 2016, every day an average of 175 people died of drug overdoses in the US.

President Donald Trump announced Saturday that China's President Xi Jinping first got him thinking about introducing the death penalty for drugs dealers. In the days leading up to the special election, he had little presence in the airwaves or on the streets.

'I just wanted to congratulate you because I am hearing of the unbelievable job on the drug problem, ' Trump reportedly said in his call with Duerte.

But it's not clear what effect that could have on the final outcome.

"If I came like a stiff, you guys wouldn't come here tonight", he said. But the president said the policy is evidence of his defense of the working class. The seat had been held by GOP Rep.

The special election is to replace Republican Rep. Tim Murphy, who resigned previous year amid revelations of an extramarital affair in which the anti-abortion lawmaker urged his mistress to get an abortion when he thought she was pregnant. Otherwise they're going to take away your taxes, your tax cuts.

No. 13 Tennessee goes for season sweep of Kentucky
Sunday marks the 26th time since the tournament was reinstated in 1979 that Kentucky will be playing for the tournament title. The biggest thing is we try to go out to every game with that mindset like we're trying to flawless our standard.

Trump says countries like Singapore have fewer issues with drug addiction because of how much more harshly they punish their dealers. He even tested out an idea he's been batting around recently about giving drug dealers the death penalty.

The opioid crisis has especially hit southwestern Pennsylvania. Trump won the district handily in 2016.

In a brief interview as volunteers buzzed through the two-story office, Lamb insisted that winning elections isn't "rocket science".

Both Lamb and Saccone have countered the attacks. According to the Post, representatives from Singapore have briefed senior White House officials on that country's drug policies.

It's not clear whether Trump's presence on the campaign trail three days before the race will boost turnout, but Saccone was hoping it would.

"Democrats fielded a candidate who's willing to run as a watered-down version of a typical Republican", said one GOP operative familiar with the race, pointing to Lamb's support for gun rights.

More than when he discussed foreign policy, however, the crowd got excited when the president spoke about the economy and domestic policy.

Fun Fact: Charlize Theron Gets Weed From Her Mom
The mom-of-two did however point out that as much as she likes to cuss she keeps it away from her daughter August and son Jackson. However, the Oscar victor was surprised when her mom showed up to her house one day with the goods.

"President Moon of South Korea said without Donald Trump the Olympics would have been a total failure".

"Personally, I like Rick Saccone", he said. "It's not a national election".

And while Trump won the region by almost 20 points little more than a year ago, polls now suggest that the Republican and Democrat are essentially tied.

There is no sign of Republican congressional candidate Rick Saccone on Sherwood Drive.

Trump was ostensibly here to inject some last-minute political capital behind Republican Rick Saccone, whose race against Democrat Conor Lamb could be a harbinger of the Republican Party's fate in the midterms.

Lamb is walking a tightrope in a district where the president remains popular.

As the race comes to a close, Republicans are already pinning the blame of a potential loss on Saccone and his poor fundraising abilities. In the House, several liberal members of the Democratic conference have introduced resolutions of impeachment, but just 66 Democrats voted in January to proceed to debate on one of those resolutions.
