GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. — It was déjà vu for President Donald Trump and Vice President Mike Pence as they finished their campaign in Grand Rapids, similar to their 2016 campaign. Their rally ended at 1:30 a.m. at Gerald R. Ford International Airport.

"We're gonna win Michigan so easily," said President Trump. "We want to do it just like last time, but give me a little more margin if you would than you did last time."

President Trump flipped Michigan in 2016 by half-a-percentage point, and he hopes to hold onto his constituents in 2020. His message was very similar to what we've seen in the course of his four-year term, listing off his accomplishments to a crowd of supports calling for another four years. The president used his time as a final attempt to attack Joe Biden's campaign while trying to persuade the American people he's fit for another full-term, touting what he called a Republican wave across the nation.

"By the way, we're doing well in Florida, Wisconsin, and Texas," Trump said. "Sleepy Joe is against guns and oil, not good for Texans. And he's against God."

The president also pointed out the cameras at his rally, calling them "fake news." Meantime, Trump invited rapper Lil Pump on stage for a brief speech during the rally, saying "never vote Sleepy Joe."

Joe Biden ended his campaign in Pittsburgh, predicting a victory in the battleground state of Pennsylvania.
