Two days before the US mid-term elections, President Donald Trump traveled to two traditionally Republican states on Sunday as he tries to help his party’s candidates stand out.
More than 10,000 fans were waiting for him in Tennessee. The president said Tuesday’s election was one of the most important of our time.
Trump is scrambling to support all of his party’s political candidates in advance of a vote, which could have a significant impact on his presidency.
The Republican Party faces strong headwinds in the House of Representatives.
On Sunday, Donald Trump campaigned in Macon, Georgia for Republican Republican candidate Brian Kemp and Chattanooga, Tennessee for Republican Republican candidate Marsha Blackburn.
Country singer Lee Greenwood sang “God Bless the USA”, the president’s favorite song, during the rally
in Chattanooga and he should sing this song again at another event in Cape Girardeau, Missouri on Monday.
Mr. Trump’s final blitz will take him to Ohio, Indiana, and Missouri on Monday. During his last rally, he will be joined by Fox News host Sean Hannity and conservative radio host Rush Limbaugh.
The president plans to spend election day hosting interviews with local media in the White House, where he will wait for the results of the vote.
For his part, former President Barack Obama galvanized Democratic supporters during a speech in Indiana on Sunday.
Without naming anyone, he said that, unlike other politicians, he was not inventing stories and was relying instead on facts.
Barack Obama also cited Republican “lies” about the health system and migrant caravans, among others.
