Trump calls Election Day ‘our Independence Day’

Posted at 8:03 PM, Nov 07, 2016

GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. -- Donald Trump channeled Hollywood as he kicked off the final rally of his unconventional presidential campaign at DeVos Place.

"Today is our Independence Day," Trump declared in the early hours Tuesday. He says, "Today, the American working class is going to strike back."

Trump had been expected to hold his last rally in New Hampshire  but added one last event to his calendar as his team made an 11th-hour push into traditionally Democratic states.

Trump said he doesn't need superstars like Jay Z, Beyonce or Lady Gaga to draw crowds, like his rival Hillary Clinton. "All we need is great ideas to make America great again."
