Trump blasts Pelosi, LeBron James before OH campaign rally

Trump sends deletes tweet urging Ohio voters to support candidate not in special election

Trump promoted other Republican officeholders and candidates in OH as he rallied supporters Saturday night at Olentangy Orange High School north of Columbus.

In a raucous rally in Ohio Saturday, Trump asked voters to back state Senator Troy Balderson, the GOP candidate in Tuesday's special election. The attack on James, who has been critical of Trump, came just as the National Basketball Association superstar opened up a school for underprivileged children.

In an interview on ABC News' "This Week", the Republican governor predicted a narrow win for Troy Balderson in the contest with Democrat Danny O'Connor - but blamed the tight race on "the chaos that seems to surround [President] Donald Trump" that's "unnerved a lot of people".

But while he didn't mention the Akron native, he did invoke similar rhetoric while training fire on one of his new favourite targets, Democrat Rep. Maxine Waters of California.

He blasted the media as "fake news" and said journalists "were bad people".

Stephanopoulos also asked about Trump's tweet this weekend taking a swipe at National Basketball Association star and OH native LeBron James, saying it is hard to make "LeBron look smart".

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".

"Suburban women in particular here are the ones that are really turned off", Kasich said. The 12th district has a higher percentage of people 25 and older with college degrees than any other district in the state, and Trump's popularity there has waned.

Trump was traveling Saturday to OH to hold a rally for state Sen.

John Kasich, a Republican critic of President Trump, said a special election in his state that should be a "slam dunk" for the GOP is instead close, which "doesn't bode well" for his party.

Accompanying the president's team aboard Air Force One en route to the rally is Hope Hicks, the former White House communications director.
