Kasich said. "He said, 'no, I didn't.' I think Donald Trump decides where he wants to go and I think they think they're firing up the base".

President Trump is confidently predicting a "Red Wave" in this year's midterm elections, ahead of a bellwether special congressional election coming up in OH tomorrow.

Though boisterous and bellicose, Trump steered clear of the trouble he stirred up the night before when he blasted one of Ohio's favourite sons, LeBron James.

Trump is appearing at Olentangy Orange High School north of Columbus in support of GOP congressional candidate Troy Balderson before a special election Tuesday.

Republican candidates across the country are attempting to appeal to Trump supporters by seeking to closely align themselves with the president and his agenda. The crowd chanted "speaker of the House", a reference to the possibility that Jordan will seek the speakership after November's midterm elections.




He also gave an onstage hug to Rep. Jim Jordan, who is under siege after allegations that, as an assistant wrestling coach at Ohio State University, he knew of alleged sexual abuse by a team doctor but did not report it. Jordan, who has denied the charge, has announced his plan to run for speaker of the House.

In a separate tweet, Trump previewed his message for the Columbus-area rally saying that while Balderson "is strong" on issues like crime and immigration, "his opponent is a puppet of Nancy Pelosi/high taxes".

President Trump is hitting the campaign trail for his third rally this week Saturday, this time, in Lewis Center, Ohio.

Trump relished playing the role of Republican kingmaker, bragging how the GOP candidates he's opposed, like Rep. Mark Sanford of SC, have lost. Troy Balderson, the Republican candidate for a U.S. House seat in a Tuesday special election, point blank why he invited Trump to campaign for him at his event in Delaware County.

Trump was traveling Saturday to OH to hold a rally for state Sen.
