At Star-Studded Rally, Trump Makes Closing Argument: ‘Stop Radical Resistance In Its Tracks’

President Trump brought out the big guns in his final rally before Election Day as he made his closing argument, urging voters to “stop the radical resistance in its tracks” to prevent Democrats from undoing the gains he’s made in his first two years.

In a rally in Cape Girardeau, Missouri, talk radio host Rush Limbaugh emerged first, drawing cheers from thousands packed into an arena.

“We are a great nation at risk in a dangerous world,” Limbaugh said. “We are hanging by a thread. Do you realize, folks, there is nobody ― there’s some on the Republican side ― but for the most part there’s nobody who would do what Donald Trump has done, nobody who would buck the system? Who among anybody in politics, who could you have lobbed onto that would have this kind of chance to make America great again?”

Once on stage, Trump brought out first daughter Ivanka Trump, Fox News hosts Sean Hannity and Jeanne Pirro, Republican National Committee Chair Ronna McDaniel, White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders, and White House counselor Kellyanne Conway.

Sanders brought the house down with her opening remark. “You’ll have to forgive Kellyanne and I. We’re a little speechless because we’re not used to friendly crowds,” she said as the crowd cheered​. Said Conway: “If you think your vote doesn’t count, if you think it doesn’t matter to have a small majority in the U.S. Senate, you did not live through the Brett Kavanaugh hearings.”

Hannity said Trump is a man of his word: “Promises made, promises kept.” And Pirro, host of “Justice With Jeanine,” knocked out the crowd when she said: “If you like the American that he is making now, you’ve got to make sure you get out there tomorrow if you haven’t voted yet.”

Trump for his part laid out his record. “In less than two years time we have accomplished so much more than we could imagine, we are so ahead of schedule.”

The president hit Ohio, Missouri and Indiana — he didn’t get back to the White House until after 3 a.m. At one rally, he said Election Day will be “interesting.”

“I look forward to seeing what happens, because something is going on,” the president said in Cleveland. “There are a couple of honest polls that are showing some very, very good promise tomorrow. You’ve got to keep the movement going tomorrow.”

All 435 U.S. House seats are up for grabs, as are 35 Senate seats and 36 state governorships. Polls show Democrats have a slight edge, but the margin has been narrowing as Election Day nears.
