President Donald Trump gave up his regular Saturday golf game so he could travel to Pennsylvania and endorse Rick Saccone for Tuesday's special Congressional election. But Trump, as usual, made Saturday evening's speech all about himself, not the Republican he's supposed to be trying to help elect.

In fact, Trump reportedly spoke for about 75 minutes. Guess when he finally endorsed Rick Saccone?

After telling supporters he was responsible for the greatness of South Korea's Olympic Games and for bringing North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un to the bargaining table, Trump meandered through a long list of reasons why "Make America Great Again" could not be his 2020 re-election slogan.
Apparently convinced that he has achieved his goals after just 14 months in office, President Trump announced that "Keep America Great" will be his new rallying cry for 2020.
"But we can only do that if we elect people who are going to back our agenda and fight for our values," Trump told the audience in Moon Township, Pennsylvania.
