President Trump rekindled the energy from his campaign Tuesday at a rally in Youngstown, Ohio, declaring that he would continue to defy the “fake news” and keep fulfilling the promises he made to the American people.
“Tonight we are going to set aside the cynics and the critics because we know exactly why they are so bitter. Because day after day,” he said, “we are keeping our promises to the people and we are putting — finally, finally, finally — finally we are putting America first.”
He said he came to Youngstown to “cut through the fake news filter” and speak directly to the American people.
The rally with thousands of supporters capped a day in which Mr. Trump enjoyed a rare victory in Congress, with Senate Republicans passing a key motion to open debate on a bill to repeal and replace Obamacare.
Mr. Trump told the crowd that a new health care law was on its way to replace what he called the disaster of Obamacare, although the path forward for the legislation is rife with pitfalls.
The win on health care, however, was overshadowed by Mr. Trump’s repeated attacks on Attorney General Jeff Sessions and the ongoing investigations into Russian election meddling that has bogged down his legislative agenda.
Still, Mr. Trump told the crowd that his agenda was advancing.
