45th President Donald J. Trump warns Pennsylvania voters about Democrat Senate nominee and current Lieutenant Governor John Fetterman.
During his rally in Latrobe over the weekend, Trump called Fetterman (D-Pa.) the “most extreme and unhinged left-wing politician ever to run for office in Pennsylvania.”
He accused the Democrat of wanting to release a third of the state’s prison population and wanting to end life-without-parole sentences.
Trump stressed that race might determine which party controls the Senate. He urged voters to vote for Dr. Mehmet Oz.
“I’ll tell you what, this could be the vote that’s going to make the difference between a country and not a country,” Trump said. “Because it could be 51, it could be 50, it could be 49, and if it’s 49 for the Republicans, this country, I don’t know if it’s going to live for another two years. That’s what’s happening, so you’ve got to get out and vote for this man. He is a good man.”
Trump’s visit to the Keystone State came on the same Saturday night as President Joe Biden and 44th President Barack Obama rallied for Fetterman in Philadelphia. These dueling events, highlight how crucial both parties consider the race to be.
