Almost nobody is more capable of acting presidential than President Trump, but "we need to move faster than that," Trump said at an exuberant campaign-style rally in Youngstown, Ohio, Tuesday night. "With the exception of the late, great Abraham Lincoln, I can be more presidential than any president that's ever held this office," Trump said, per CNN. "I think that with few exceptions, no president has done anywhere near what we've done in [this] first six months. Not even close," added Trump, who told the crowd of around 7,000 that being presidential is a lot easier than "what we're doing here tonight." Trump also slammed the "fake news media" and once again promised to build a border wall.

In a speech that lasted almost an hour, Trump promised to bring lost jobs back to Ohio, including those at steel mills that closed decades ago, the Washington Post reports. "They're all coming back. They're coming back," he said. "Don't move. Don't sell your house." He also promised to improve or scrap NAFTA and repeated his pledge to spend $1 trillion on infrastructure projects. He said it was great to be "away from the Washington swamp," though he praised senators for voting to open debate on ObamaCare repeal. "We're now one step closer to liberating our citizens from this ObamaCare nightmare and delivering great health care for the American people," he said, per the Youngstown Vindicator.
