They both chatted informally with the attendees before the event that included the owners of Potomac Mineral Group where the event was held, along with three female business owners and a handful of Pennsylvania state legislators, including Rick Saccone, who is running for the special election seat in the 18th Congressional District.
“I guarantee you people have to sign more paperwork to purchase a car than purchase a home today; it frustrates the consumers,” said Diehl, who employs over 400 people in Western Pennsylvania.
Trump turned to Saccone during the roundtable to discuss work he has done in the state legislature to empower small businesses and lessen state regulations, Saccone is facing Democrat Conor Lamb, a former federal prosecutor, who lives just blocks from where the event was held.
At the end of the event Tuesday, McMahon and Trump went to a separate room to meet with the working mothers of Potomac Mineral Group and their babies, who ranged in age from a few weeks, to under a year.
Bethany Salmen and her son Dean, Molly Slaughter and her son Luke, and Samantha Fitzhenry and her son Nicholas all discussed how Potomac Mineral had worked with them to be able to work from home or bring their kids into the office.
