President Donald Trump wrapped up his pitch for a second term in the White House in Grand Rapids, Michigan, with his adult children at his side.
‘I think we’re going to win everything. I think tomorrow is going to be one of the greatest wins in the history,’ he predicted.
‘This is not the crowd of somebody who is going to lose the state of Michigan,’ he said. ‘This is not the crowd of a second place finisher.’
‘We want a big win. Not just a win. A big win,’ he said.
The Daily Mail reports,
Democratic rival Joe Biden leads in national polls and in polling in several critical battleground states. Biden is up by 6.7 points in the RealClearPolitics polling average. But it’s been an unusual year – upended by the coronavirus pandemic – and Tuesday’s race is not a lock.
‘He’s not going to win. I really don’t believe he’s going to win,’ Trump said of his rival.
Trump sounded hoarse and tired after two back-to-back days of campaigning in which he held 10 rallies in several crucial battleground states. His final rally of the day Monday started after midnight after a 14-hour day of campaigning.
‘We appreciate you so much,’ he told the crowd.
The president was joined at the final event of his 2020 campaign by Donald Trump Jr and his girlfriend Kimberly Guilfoyle, Eric Trump and Lara Trump, Tiffany Trump, and Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner.
‘No matter what happens tomorrow I’m very proud of you all,’ he said to them. ‘But if you don’t win I’ll never speak to you again.’
Vice President Mike Pence was on hand to join him.
Several former members of his 2016 campaign and the early days of his administration were on hand for the event: former Chief of Staff Reince Priebus and former press secretary Sarah Sanders were spotted.
The president attacked his rival as against ‘guns, God and oil’ in his closing remarks.
‘Every corrupt force in America and life that has ever betrayed you and hurt you is supporting Joe Biden,’ he told the crowd.
‘Do you want to be ruled by maniacs or the American people?’ he said.
He warned Biden would raise taxes and take guns – pronouncements that had the crowd booing.
‘He never had what it took. He was a glad-hander,’ he said of Biden. ‘Not a smart guy, not a nice guy.’
Trump played a video of Biden verbal gaffes and his stuttering – a recent addition to his rallies designed to make his rival look foolish and mentally off.
‘It puts much more pressure on me to run against a guy like this,’ he said after it aired. ‘The concept of losing to a guy like this – You better get out there and vote tomorrow or I’ll be so angry.’
And he bragged about his own accomplishments.
‘We fulfilled everything we said we were going to fulfill,’ he said. ‘And we did some things that we never even talked about.’
He told the crowd: ‘You are so lucky I’ve agreed to be your president.’
He offered a list of grievances against himself, which includes his standing in the polls, his coverage in the media, and his impeachment trial.
He said all the stories and investigations ‘makes me perhaps the most innocent man anywhere in the history of the United States.’
Trump wrapped up five rallies in four states on Sunday. He woke up at his Trump International Golf Club in Doral after holding a midnight rally in Miami. He started off on a high note with friends and supporters yelling ‘four more years’ as he left the club. From there he held rallies in Fayetteville, North Carolina; Scranton, Pennsylvania; Traverse City, Michigan; and Kenosha, Wisconsin before his final event in Grand Rapids.
While Trump went from state to state on Monday, Biden kept his focus on Pennsylvania. He, Jill Biden, Kamala Harris, and Doug Emhoff barnstormed the critical state all day.
At his closing rally in Pittsburgh, Biden offered a message of hope.
‘Tomorrow is the beginning of a new day,’ he said. ‘Tomorrow we can put an end to a presidency that has left hard-working Americans out in the cold. Tomorrow we can put an end to a presidency that has divided this nation and fanned the flames of hate. Tomorrow we can put an end to a presidency that has failed to protect this nation. Millions of Americans have already voted. Millions more will vote tomorrow.’
‘And my message to you is simple: The power to change this country is in your hands,’ he said.
