\'Make sure we win\': Donald Trump mixes 2020 politics into Pennsylvania energy speech

WASHINGTON President Donald Trump traveled to western Pennsylvania on Tuesday for what the White House billed as a speech on energy independence and the U.S. economy but which just as frequently looked and sounded like a campaign rally.

"In 2020, we're running, so you better get out there and make sure we win," Trump told a supportive crowd at the soon-to-be-completed Pennsylvania Petrochemicals Complex in Monaca, Pa. a key state to the president's 2016 win and his hopes for re-election in 2020.

Citing his 2016 success in surrounding Beaver County "I did very well here" Trump blasted Democratic economic policies, knocked Democrat Hillary Clinton and touched on campaign themes like "America First," deregulation, his proposed border wall with Mexico, and attacks on "the political class in Washington" and its past trade policies.

He spoke for more than an hour.

At one point, Trump told the crowd he would be speaking with local union leaders, and planned to tell them "I hope you're gonna support Trump." If they don't, Trump told his backers, "vote 'em out of office."

Trump criticized several of the Democratic candidates lining up against him by name, including Elizabeth Warren and Joe Biden.

"I don't think they give a damn about western Pennsylvania, do you?" he asked.

Citing guests in the audience, Trump who walked on stage to his campaign theme song, Lee Greenwood's "Proud to be an America" saluted David Urban, who ran his state campaign in Pennsylvania. "How are we doing in the state, David?" Trump asked. "I think we're looking good all over."
