GRAND RAPIDS, MI (WLNS) – Did you ever think you’d be hearing a major speech close to 1 o’clock in the morning? Are we crazy?” Donald Trump said.
In his eighth visit to Michigan on Monday, Donald Trump tied a bow on his election package. Just after midnight on Tuesday, the Republican nominee took the stage in Grand Rapids, where he made a strong pitch to Michigan voters, hoping to capitalize on all those undecided voters’ just hours before they head to the polls.
Michigan was one of five states trump chose to focus in on, making Monday a historic day for the mitten state; which brought President Obama, Democratic Presidential nominee, Hillary Clinton, Republican Vice Presidential candidate Mike Pence, and of course Donald Trump, all making last minute campaign stops.
“We’re going to win the great state of Michigan and we are going to win back the white house,” Trump said.
He put a big emphasis on Michigan.
“We are going to bring back the automobile industry to Michigan, bigger and better than ever, and stronger than ever before,” Trump said. “Michigan now stands at the crossroads of history. If we win Michigan, we will win this historic election and then we truly will be able to do all of the things we want to do.”
Trump also didn’t waste any time making jabs at Hillary Clinton, bringing up the saga surrounding her email scandal, and the promises she wants to make to America, that he says, don’t work for everyone.
“Wait until you see what we do for Michigan, I’ve been talking about it for a long time, crooked Hillary has not talked about it at all, folks,” Trump said. “Today (Tuesday) is our independence day.”
Trump also laid out his vision for America if he wins The White House.
“My contract with the American voters begins with a plan to end government corruption,” he said.
He also pledges to do a couple of things including repeal the Affordable Care Act, cut taxes, and “build a wall.”
Thousands of Trump supporters filled the DeVos Convention Center in Grand Rapids for the event, some voters 6 News talked to say, they came to the event as an undecided voter, hoping to allow Trump to sway them before getting out to the polls.
“I’ll be honest I will be voting tomorrow and I am not 100% certain for who I’m voting for yet.,” Ben Marietta said. “This is the last ditch maybe for him I have my issues with him, I definitely won’t be voting for Hillary.
Some like John Riccobono said Trump resonates with him and his family, and he supports the pitches he has made to America.
“The last time I can remember this state ever going red was Ronald Reagan, so it’s crucial,” Riccobono said. “So I believe we’re in a time right now where history could be made.”
