GOP strategist: Trump will be anchor around Republicans' necks in 2020

And the most dramatic effort came on Saturday night, when President Trump held a rally in the district - though there was concern even before the rally that the president might do more harm than good. The race is surprisingly close, given the usual Republican advantage in the district. Kasich said. "He said, 'no, I didn't.' I think Donald Trump decides where he wants to go and I think they think they're firing up the base".

President Donald Trump has arrived in OH at the Port Columbus International Airport and is appearing Saturday evening at Olentangy Orange High School north of Columbus in support of GOP congressional candidate Troy Balderson.

Trump didn't circle back to his criticism of basketball star LeBron James, who a couple of days earlier he tweeted was stupid after James slammed the president during an interview about the charter school he's opening.

Trump trained fire on one of his new targets, Democrat Representative Maxine Waters of California. He said journalists are "terrible people".

UFC president Dana White downplayed the idea when asked during the conference. UFC 229 in Las Vegas will be the biggest fight of 2018.

Trump also brought to the stage OH congressman Jim Jordan, calling him "a tough cookie".

GOP strategist Mike Murphy on Sunday said Republican candidates running pro-Trump platforms in this year's primaries will find the president is an "anchor around [their] neck" during the general elections. He touted Balderson's record on crime and immigration and claimed that O'Connor, if he won, would be a "puppet" of Nancy Pelosi, who stands to reclaim the title of speaker of the House if Democrats seize control of the body this fall.

He also defended his trade policies and, at one point, seemed to suggest that the markets would be up another 40 per cent without his tariffs - but said the measures were needed or the nation would eventually have to "pay the piper".

He also brought on-stage Freedom Caucus member and Ohio Representative Jim Jordan, who praised the president on his leadership and accomplishments, amid cheers from the crowd saying "speaker of the house".
