Following the kickoff, Trump is expected to concentrate on firing up his political base in Pennsylvania, Michigan and Wisconsin, where his campaign polling showed the president is trailing Biden, Politico reported.

Trump repeatedly went after Biden during a campaign rally Monday night in Montoursville.

"President Trump inherited an economy from Obama-Biden administration that was given to him", said Biden in Philadelphia. REUTERS/Carlos Barria U.S. President Donald Trump reacts as he addresses a Trump 2020 re-election campaign rally in Montoursville, Pennsylvania, U.S. May 20, 2019.

U.S. President Donald Trump, facing a potentially hard path to winning a second term in November 2020, on Monday told supporters in Pennsylvania that his trade war had strengthened the battleground state's steel industry and jobs.

The president made an endorsement Monday afternoon, writing on Twitter, "Fred Keller of the Great State of Pennsylvania has been an outstanding State Representative". "He left you for another state". He referenced Biden's claim at a recent rally that "foreign leaders called him up and begged him" to run for president.

"Politics is a insane world, but when you have the best employment numbers in history, when you have the best unemployment numbers in history".

"When you have the best employment numbers in history, when you have the best unemployment numbers in history, when you have the best economy probably that we've ever had, I don't know - how the hell do you lose this election, right?", he said.

"If I stood there and talked about the economy for that long a period - let's say, the economy's great, unemployment's low, we're doing wonderful.they'd start falling asleep", he said. Unemployment was even lower than that in the early 1950s, and much lower, under 2%, during three years of World War II.

President Donald Trump is telling rallygoers in Pennsylvania that "we have a big race tomorrow" as he campaigns for a Republican candidate seeking to fill an open congressional seat.

Trump uses his campaign rallies to disparage various Democratic candidates for president, but he has been heavily focused on Biden, suggesting he may be anxious about the possibility of facing off next year against the longtime politician.

Before Mr. Trump's poll-defying victory in 2016, the last Republican to carry the state was President George.

His campaign sees the state as key to keeping control of the White House, along with MI and Wisconsin.
