Donald Trump boasts of leading the early vote


President Donald Trump said he was leading the early vote and said he was aiming for a 12-year term during his first of two campaign stops on Saturday in Muskegon, Michigan.

The president called his democratic rival a "criminal" and overturned the state's democratic government. Gretchen Whitmer – with his noisy crowd locking him and her up.

"It just came out, we're leading – early voting," the president told thousands of supporters outside the Muskegon County airport on Saturday night.

He told the crowd that the Democrats would have to show a "thundering defeat at the ballot box". "By the way, it seems to be happening," said the president.

He admitted that if the coronavirus pandemic hadn't happened, he thought the choice would have been his.

"This thing wouldn't even be a choice," he said, then referred to the "plague." "I didn't have to come to Michigan," added Trump, explaining that he won the state because production had returned.

When Trump arrived in Muskegon, he realized that the wind could damage his hair.

"Get me a hat off the plane," he said, nodding to Air Force One.

He also joked that he was sitting without a hat on a seat made of Trump and winter hats.

About a third of the thousands of people who had gathered at the airport wore masks to help prevent the spread of COVID-19.

Adjutant John McEntee later came on stage and handed the President a red "Keep America Great" hat.

At the rally, Trump pounded Michigan's Democratic Governor Gretchen Whitmer for banning the state.

He has also downplayed a recent right-wing militia plot to kidnap them.

“You say she was threatened. And she accused me. And our people worked for their people, ”Trump told the crowd.

In response, a Trump fan shouted "Liars!"

Soon a "lock her up!" Singing started.

At another point a supporter shouted, "Lock him up!" That cue was directed at the Democratic candidate Joe Biden.

& # 39; He's a criminal. He's committed crimes, ”Trump said.

He later falsely accused Biden of firing a Ukrainian prosecutor who was dealing with the company advising Biden's son Hunter.

"It makes Crooked Hillary look like an amateur class," Trump said.

Trump spooned Michigander's some of his signature culture war fodder, including the fact that Democrats want to "blow up" Mount Rushmore and "tear down" the Jefferson Memorial and Washington Monument.

"That is what we are dealing with," Trump said cheerfully.

He mocked liberals who want to replace Columbus Day with Indigenous Peoples Day, pointing out that they have likely lost the Italian-American voice.

He commended his third Supreme Court election, Judge Amy Coney Barrett, which is likely to be ratified by the Republican Senate before election day.

"Amy will do it, she did it great, it is great to watch her," enthused Trump, calling her much more impressive than the "radical left senators".

"Unlike Joe, she doesn't need notes, it's nice," Trump said, referring to his Democratic rival Joe Biden.

Trump also poked fun at an aide and crew member for Vice Presidential candidate Kamala Harris who contracted the coronavirus. "We wish her all the best," he said sarcastically. "She is in seclusion," added Trump.

As a precaution, Harris has canceled all of her campaign trips through Monday, but she is technically not in quarantine.

Regarding his own fight against the virus, Trump joked that he was surrounded by droves of doctors.

"And each of them wanted to touch a different part of my body," said Trump, laughing.

Trump continued to boast of "super duper missiles" adding that they were "all made in the US, by the way."

He also congratulated himself on the space effort under his watch.

"Some of them say I actually produced more than what I promised," he said.

Trump targeted his democratic rival and his approach to health and education.

"I've done more in 47 months than Joe Biden in 47 years," he claimed before saying "a vote for Republicans is a vote for the American dream".

He added, "Can you imagine this sleepy guy coming in?"

Trump freaked out between an unusual lack of confidence in his ability to secure a second term and claiming he would overturn the current rules that presidents can only serve for eight years, saying, "12 will now be the gold standard. "

"We'll be here four years, and then if we decide to go for another four or eight or so," he said, sending the crowd "12 more years!"

The president ended the rally with his typical step – dad dances to the YMCA.

Overall, the trip on Saturday will take him through four important swing states: Michigan, Wisconsin, Nevada and Arizona, only 17 days until the 2020 presidential elections.

He will also fly to California on Sunday to do an Orange County lost property shave at tech mogul Palmer Lucky’s estate.

Since recovering from the coronavirus, Trump has held rally after rally and officially returned to the campaign on Monday.

He traveled to Florida, Pennsylvania, Iowa, North Carolina, back to Florida for his town hall on NBC News Thursday night, to Georgia, and then back to Florida.

Florida and North Carolina seem more promising for Trump than the Midwest, which was traditionally Democratic until it freaked out Wisconsin and Michigan in 2016.

But that didn't stop the president from going there anyway.

Trump travels first to Muskegon, Michigan and then on to Janesville, Wisconsin to hold rallies on Saturday in a row.

The president arrives in Wisconsin as the state broke a record for new positive coronavirus cases on Friday.

It's the third time in a week that a new record has been set in the state.

Wisconsin also hit record highs in hospital stays and deaths, according to The Associated Press.

The state's Democratic Governor Tony Evers publicly voiced his concern that the president is holding the rally in his state on Saturday.

"If nothing out of the ordinary happens by then, he'll be promoting a super-spreader event," said Evers. "As governor or the state of Wisconsin, I would surely ask him personally if people wear masks and if they are physically far away."

Although Trump, First Lady Melania Trump, Barron Trump, Hope Hicks, Stephen Miller and a number of other Trump aides and congressional allies have contracted the coronavirus since the end of September, the president has not changed his attitude towards the virus or taken additional security measures at his rallies .

However, he has thrown branded masks into his crowd.
