President Donald Trump by Justin Merriman

President Donald Trump speaks to an invited crowd of several hundred supporters during an official visit at H&K Equipment, a rental and sales company for specialized material handling solutions in North Fayette, Pennsylvania, on January 18, 2018. Trump visited the facility to talk about the Republican tax reform policy that was passed in late December and to endorse Republican nominee for the 18th Congressional District race, Rick Saccone. 

Saccone is running against Democratic nominee Conor Lamb in the special election in the 18th Congressional District to replace Tim Murphy, who resigned in disgrace over a sex scandal. Read more about the President's visit at the Washington Examiner

I spent several days traveling around Pennsylvania, Ohio and West Virginia for Bloomberg and ran across Aaron Schissler, 8, as he jumps on his trampoline at his home near FirstEnergy’s Bruce Mansfield Power Plant on Sunday, December 3, 2017 in Shippingport, Pa.
